I'd heard Marten VE2WU yesterday but he was ragchewing with another station so I didn't break in. Today he was chatting to another station and as the QSO ended I called him and he answered.

now, at the time, I was a little perplexed by what he did.  but as I thought about it later, he actually did me a big favour.  Basically, what he did was say "I'm looking at your QRZ.com page and a can see your nice pic, and how you have a Yaseau 101B and you make guitars and I hope your back gets better......."

there was a little QSB so I gave him a signal rept and said there was QSB but all info OK.

so he pretty much repeated his last (long) transmission.

like I say,at the time, I was thinking, Aw man, you're got all my info, I've got nothing left to tell you"  but what he did was to give me a chance to listen to the same transmission twice and it contained a load of info that I already knew.....

a real help to my receiving, so THANKS MARTEN!!
