Yesterday, 18-May-2021, Chris, whom I met on P25 Phase 1 Talk-group: 10200, flew into San Francisco — he literally flew into San Francisco, California, on a United Airlines commercial jet into SFO on a stop-over to his final destination, Hawai’i.
Chris and I share common interests through our HAM conversations, and we always talked about grabbing a bite if he ever had a lay-over in, San Fran, as Chris would say in his Southern accent. (I’m also a Southerner…I was born in Charleston, South Carolina.)
Of course, in a addition to our similar interests transceivers, firearms, politics, family-values, and our views on life, we are aviation enthusiasts!
I’ve always been intrigued by the physics of flying…birds flying and aircraft (e.g., planes, helos, rockets, and so on) flying.
In addition, I always like views, and Chris’s spectacular view of San Francisco, California, from his office-window, his office, itself, is pretty amazing!
It was truly a pleasure meeting Chris — I learned a lot from him.
Kinda cool the way two little 5-watt transceivers can bring people together, regardless of distance and differences.
Check 6, Chris! God’s speed to Hawai’i and back to North Carolina.
