G5RV - Louis Varney

Here is an unusual chance to see a legend. We have all heard about the G5RV antenna. Probably, most of us have used one at some point in our ham radio lives. A friend of mine, Tony Day (KC4AUF) had a QSO with Louis Varney, G5RV and took the opportunity to write and have some pictures taken. Some of those photographs are featured here. I thought you might enjoy them. I've also included G5RV's QSL card for your viewing pleasure.

I want to thank KC4AUF and G5RV for taking the time to produce this material.
