Congratulations on FM station #2000 (KTST-101.9)... from Oklahoma! That certainly has a special meaning.
I know how you feel about John-- he was just starting to show interest in FM-DXing, mostly because of your great E-skip success. Despite his decades of DXing knowledge and experience, John was always willing to try something new, and discover a new way to enjoy the hobby. One of my biggest thrills was developing the E100 Slider loopstick antenna together with him, and watching it become popular with various DXers. John took special pride in the growing popularity of the Ultralightdx group, and how it was bringing new enthusiasm into the AM-DXing hobby.
Before long I'll be heading to Grayland to chase DU's, the first summer in 3 years that Guy Atkins and I won't be able to coordinate DXpedition times with John at the Grayland Motel. I'm sure that both of us will still need a while to get used to the new situation.
