Ham Member Restored Lookups: 24814


First licensed in 1960 while a senior in High School in Louisiana as KN5BCC. I operated using a Heathkit DX-40 and a Hallicrafters SX-99 with a dipole and a Demi-Quad. License expired when I went to college and after 21 plus years in the US Air Force (in communications, what else?) I again got bitten by the Ham-bug. Retired from the Air Force as a Major and flew on the SAC Airborne Command Post (Looking Glass) as Comm Officer for 5 1/2 Years. Was back on the air in September of 1992 as a General (N0UCG) using the old novice rig, updated with a Heathkit VF-1 VFO instead of crystals. Boy, what a difference 30 years makes. Got Worked All States on 40Meter CW before Christmas! A new Kenwood TS-450S and I started in on SSB in late 1992. DXCC and a bunch of other awards in 1993. My primary rig now is a Kenwood TS-950SD I got in 1995. Antennas are a 3-element tri-band yagi at 40 feet, a G5RV flat-topped at 40 feet (for 80 Meters through 10M) and an inverted-L for 160 Meters. Got an MFJ 9406 6 Meter rig in 2003 and also have a Kenwood TM721A dual bander with J-pole antenna for 144 and 440Mhz plus an Icom 24AT hand held.

I upgraded to EXTRA (20wpm code) in 1995 and am still having a blast on the bands. Got introduced to 6 Mtrs in 2003 when I bought an MFJ 9406 10 Watt tranceiver at Dayton. Able to get VUCC and after 10 and 1/2 years, finally worked the one state needed to complete WAS on 6Mtrs. Have 8 band SSB WAS, 5 band CW WAS, a Mixed band RTTY WAS, and 331 countries for DXCC credit and added 5-Band DXCC in 2012. Finally got my DXCC total to 335 countries and got the last two QSLs for the ARRL's Honor Roll on 20 November 2014.   Also have WAZ and the new WUST award. Am active on the GERATOL, 3905 Century Club, and OMISS Nets as well as the HF bands. Hope to meet you there. Other hobbies are collecting military insignia, restoring my old Lionel train set and collecting NASCAR 1/64 diecast cars.

I am also a Life Member of ARRL, an ARRL-VE, the trustee of the SAC Memorial Amateur Radio Club callsign K0AIR and the GERATOL Net Amateur Radio Club callsign W0NL, Past Vice-President of OMISS, Past-President of the 3905 Century Club, and Secretary of both SACMARC and the GERATOL Net.
