About Skookum

The adjective skookum means excellent, impressive, or: big, strong, durable, reliable, trustworthy, doughty. See Wiktionary. I encountered the term while browsing the web looking for suitable icons for my contest logger among sites connected with timber logging in the Northwestern USA and British Columbia.

About me

K1GQ is my amateur radio call sign. The hobby has connected me with many remarkable people that I otherwise would never have met. They have enriched my life, they know who they are, and who I am.
