Within a year, I passed the General test & my call became W0HAW.
While attending Greenville College in Illinois, I obtained a second call K9EWB. I was chief operator of the club station K9BJV.
I graduated from the University of Kansas (B.S.E.E.) & moved to Southern CA, obtaining the call WA6ORJ. I passed the Extra Class exam in 1977 at the San Diego FCC office. Immediately after passing the test, I turned in a list of preferred calls & was given the first one on my list: AA6EE. The AA block of calls was just being opened up. This was before he FCC set up the vanity call system.
