He and Otis Nonken/K5SWK went to elementary (primary, as the Euro's
would call it) together. Koby and Otis were together when Otis (as a
teenager) was busted by the FCC for bootlegging a broadcast station on
the AM Broadcast band.
Otis turned 84 (or 85) on his last b'day, Feb 7th.
John/WA5BXO, Larry/WD5CFJ, hopefully Perry/W5KGZ, Jimmy/K5SOH,
Jeff/N5ECP Geoff/W5OMR and maybe others are looking to converge in the
Spring, TX area tomorrow (Friday) around 1'ish to meet with Otis
If you're in the Rayford/Sawdust Road and I-45 area and would like to
join in, I'll be monitoring 146.52 from around 12 noon on, tomorrow.
73 = Best Regards,
