One of our own

is sick; and could use your prayers and best wishes.

If you've been involved with the world of QRP for any length of time, you've run across Hank Kohl K8DD.  If you've attended FDIM you probably reserved your room through him.  But you may also know him from working him in any number of QRP contests, sprints, or perhaps even one of the many DXpeditions he's been a member of.  Hank is also familiar to his fellow members of QRP-ARCI, the Flying Pigs, MI-QRP, NAQCC, etc.

Hank is in the hospital with some serious medical issues.  If you subscribe to the Flying Pigs list, the details have been made known there; and I'm not going to get into specifics here.  Suffice it to say, it's not as simple as "same day" surgery.  Hank's a hurtin' puppy right now and can use your prayers and best wishes.

And, I am sure, he wouldn't mind receiving a QSL card from you letting him know that you're thinking of him.  Here's his address courtesy of

ATTICA, MI 48412-0088

I am sure that Hank's wife Kathie would love to lift Hank's spirits with a lot of well wishes from his fellow Hams and QRPers.

I'm putting mine in the Post Office mailbox tomorrow morning.
