Sprout

In Oct 2012, I visited Ham Radio Outlet in Oakland and came across this kitten that Nick, one of the employees, had found in the wheel-well of his truck in the parking lot. She spent the day in the store, following the employees around. Mark the store manager didn't want a store cat, so I said I would take her. I had been looking for a companion for Chala, a 10 year-old that I just adopted, so the timing was perfect.

I wanted to give her a ham radio related name as a reference to where I met her, and just as radio hams have both a regular name and an FCC-issued callsign (mine is AA7EE), I wanted this little kitty to have both a regular name and a ham radio name. Her regular name is Sprout, and her ham radio name is "Sprat The QRP Cat" in homage to the journal of the GQRP Club, a club for enthusiasts of low-power operation. Their journal is called Sprat.
