Overly Ambitious Ham Kicked From Club
By K5KAC, on the scene
PATASKALA, OHIO — Lukas Guzman, a 27 year-old newly licensed ham radio operator, was booted from the Flicking County Amateur Club last night during their annual meeting at Crusty’s Wharf. When pressed for a reason, the other members simply stated that “he is too involved.”
“He wanted us to get VE credentials and actually test new hams,” exclaimed Mort Brenley. “He was always excitedly talking about working DX.”
Guzman noted that he really felt the blowback when he brought up how much fun a DXpedition would be. “They looked at me like I had been inhaling contact cleaner,” he said.
Tensions came to a head after everyone had their second helping of clam chowder. “I whipped out my typed to-do list, and everyone’s face went green,” said Guzman.
Brenley concurred. “He got to ‘school outreach’ and I saw Vernon fumbling for his nitro pills. I knew he had to be stopped.”
There was an unanimous vote, 4-0, and Guzman was removed from the club.
“He is damn lucky we didn’t toss him from the Highway 16 overpass into the South Fork of Flicking River.”
As of press time, Guzman was updating his QRZ page, updating ACLog, memorizing his LOTW certificate code, replacing the electrolytic caps on an old Hallicrafters, applying for grants to buy a transceiver for his local elementary school, framing his license, and checking to see if a frequency was in use.
