Please Cast Your Vote for “Call Signs”–!

Dear Readers:

I have a favor to ask. You might remember our friend Wlod (US7IGN) has not only written a book about living in Kiev during the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but was also the subject of an amazing, award-winning audio documentary by Cicely Fell.

Both Wlod and Cicely are dear friends and it’s been my honor to have played a small part in the making of this documentary and, more importantly, introducing these two amazing people to each other. 

“Call Signs” has been nominated for another award and the public–no matter where you live in the world–is allowed to vote. Voting requires no login and is very easy to do. The login form is in French, but Cicely explains how to vote below. 

It would be meaningful to me if you took a moment to register your vote today.

Thank you & 72! –Thomas (K4SWL)

  1. Done as well. It was a great documentary, and his book is very engaging as well – I just wish it continued on!

  2. Pour ce qui est le français, aucun problème! I haven’t read this book or listened to the doc, but I’m going to do both now. Thanks, Thomas!
