John, K3WWP, and “the streak”

Here’s a link to an amateur radio website that celebrates a one-of-a-kind accomplishment that is still going on.

John, callsign K3WWP of Kittanning, PA, operates low power (QRP) CW (Morse code) with very simple equipment and antennas.  Several years ago John decided he would make at least one QRP CW contact per day just to see how long he could keep it up.

As of August 3, 2017, John’s streak has been going for 8,400 DAYS!!!  That’s right — using only low power (5 watts or less), very simple antennas and Morse code, John has made at least one contact per day for 8,400 days without a break — that’s 23 years!!  And he’s still at it!!

Go to John’s very informative website to follow his streak and to learn more about this interesting facet of amateur radio.
