a reprint of the revolutionary article by Thomas H. Schiller, N6BT (QST July, 2000)
"N6 Bravo Tango, this is N0 Papa Golf. Tony, Iowa, number 69591." I made it with one call: February 5th, 2000, my first contact with "The Illuminator." KB9TQI, Indiana; N0IJ, Minnesota; K4CIH, Alabama; WA9TPQ, Illinois; N5MT, Texas; KB0MZG, Kansas; and, KX9DX, Illinois were other contacts made in the 10/10 Contest, slipping into the radio room from time to time while working in the yard. The path to Indiana was the farthest on record for me with the 150-W light bulb perched on a fence post. What a pleasant surprise, and there was more to come.
