Top band DX-ing is real ham radio challenge. 160m is also referred as the "Gentleman's band"...

Jack was one of my best friends on topband, a special person for me. The first 160m QSO with Jack was around 1970 when his call was yet KH6CHC. Since then we have worked several hundred times.
Also the first time I visited Jack was mid 80's and since then I visited him so many times.
He was 88 years old while he started ham radio at the age of 13, so he kept working for 75 years !

I guess Jack was the second 160m DXCC holder while Mike VK6HD was the first in Oceania.
He said his 160m DXCC was 215 countries and would complete WAZ with one more zone.

Many thanks Jack. Rest in peace. We all will miss you on 160m.
