The Goat Man

If you are "into" QRP and you hang around the QRP watering holes; or participate in any of the more popular recurring Sprints, then undoubtedly you've worked or know Steve Galchutt, NØTU.

Besides being an active QRPer, Steve is also an avid outdoorsman. He takes his QRP gear with him out on hikes; and he is usually accompanied by his two goats, Rooster and Peanut.

He was out in the hills of Colorado the other day, operating portable from the top of a place he calls Lone Pine Ridge (or something like that!), when he happened to work Bob W3BBO. Bob was using his new 20 Meter SST radio, and Steve was so impressed with Bob's signal that he recorded it and put it on YouTube.

You can see it here:

This video is way cool! Steve does a great job with all his videos and I recommend them highly. You can tell how enthusiastic he is about QRP from his posts. And what's even "cooler" is that he's not only enthused by his own success; but he also gets a kick out of the success of others.

Happy viewing!
