This is, or, well, could be had I owned a radio, day ZERO for me!  Somewhere
between coming home from work and vacuuming the house my call sign was
granted and posted to the ULS database!  I am henceforth known among my HAM
piers as KJ4FFC.  Pleased to meet you all!  How's that call sign for
contesting?  "-.- .--- ....- ..-. ..-. -.-."?  Good, bad, indifferent?  I'm
getting ahead of myself, I know, but I was just wondering.
