Hank is correct.
I recently unpacked a bunch of old logs and noticed that I participated in
both the 1962 and the 1963 Ohio QSO Parties.
I made 57 contacts in the 1963 contest. It was held on April 6-7, 1963.
Many of the calls are guys who were very active back then - W8NBK, W8UPH,
W8BQV, K8ATQ, K8MTI, etc. Quite a few of these guys have no doubt passed
away, while others probably have different calls today. Two guys that I
worked back then that are very definitely still alive and active - K8RYU and
W8CHT (better known as N8XX).
One of these days, if I get ambitious, I'll type up a list of calls in that
log and post it here.
73, Hal W1NN (K8HVT back then)
