First licensed in 1982 as KA2QGM with a Novice class license I did not do much hamming until my college friend (who convinced me to get my license) returned extolling the virtues of the VE program. Two weeks later I had my Technician ticket and a week after that, my first 2m HT.
Further upgrades didn't happen until I moved into three land and decided to update my callsign. General was easy since I had the old Technician with the 50 questions that covered VHF and HF. So all I had to do was the code. Advanced was also easy since my background is embedded electronics. For Extra, I knuckled down and passed the code by the skin of my teeth.
After 22 years as N3GNW a friend put the bug in my ear of the advantages of a double letter callsign. After three or four times I finally spent some time going through the soon to be expired and forfeited callsign lists. There I found AA3K.
My interests in amateur radio are pretty diverse. I like chasing DX, contesting, rag chewing and public service. I am heavily involved in the Warminster Amateur Radio Club and I am a past president of the club and currently a Directer. I am also a member of the Frankford Radio Club and am its current secretary.
Preferred QSL route is via the BURO. If QSL'ing direct, DX; enclose a self-addressed envelope and $1 or 1 IRC. Domestic; a self-addressed stamped envelope will be sufficient.
All contacts are also posted to LotW and eQSL. Unfortunately eQSL is not a substitute for LotW.
