Daily Ham News

If you’re a regular on the SWLing Post, you’ll certainly know our contributor, Robert Gulley.

Robert is a wonderful friend and one of the biggest ambassadors for radio I know. Robert has mentored a countless number of ham radio operators and radio listeners–his enthusiasm is infectious.

This time, Robert could really use our help.

His wife Jennifer has Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (MS)–a disease that has progressed to the point she needs 24/7 care. Finances are tight, so when a home equity loan taken out over 15 years ago recently ballooned, Robert and Jennifer have struggled to make these payments and stay afloat.

They’ve explored refinancing and even selling their home, but the numbers simply don’t work in their favor.

I, along with a number of Robert’s close friends, have encouraged him to start a GoFundMe campaign to try to raise some funds to pay down the home equity loan.

Robert isn’t the sort of guy that ever asks for help, indeed he’s always the one giving help. This is why I’m asking you to consider supporting his GoFundMe campaign if you have the means to do so. You can read more about his situation on the GoFundMe page.

Any amount will help as it will be dropped on the principle of their loan and thus shorten the term or even make a refinance possible.

Click here to support Robert’s GoFundMe campaign.

GoFundMe is a reputable organization to raise funds and they don’t take a large cut like some other platforms do, but if you would rather support Robert outside of GoFundMe (directly, by check for example) feel free to contact him.

Thank you!

Heli, DD0VR, (along with XYL Bigi, DE3BWR) informed OPDX on Monday that their Fiji “DXpedition ends here.” Heli explains that after two visits to the Fiji Customs Bureau, and having endless discussions, the couple was told that they would have to pay three times 1540 Fijian dollars (700 USDs) for their transmitters & amp in order to take their equipment into the three islands they planned to operate from (Fiji, Samoa and Tonga). So Heli/ DD0VR and XYL Bigi/DE3BWR then decided to make their trip a “normal holiday” and pick-up their equipment on the way back to Germany. At this point, they were very disappointed. However, on Wednesday, thanks from some help by Tevita Navila (Telecommunications Authority of Fiji), Tony/3D2AG and Bernie/W3UR of The Daily DX, Heli was able to retrieve his equipment and was able to be active as 3D2VR from Fiji for a few days.
