Special Event N1O marks the 73rd Operating Year of Oscar W4OXH

Yesterday (Sept 20th 16:32 UTC on 20m) I made a 20m QSO with N1O, which is a special event callsign and marks the 73rd Operating Year of Oscar W4OXH.

Oscar is 105 and has been blind for over 80 years.  He gained his ham license in 1949 and the rest is history!

Some links, where his history and the event are well explained:

The N1O Special Event runs 20 Sept to 01 Oct 2022.

Hope you can catch them on the air!
