Thanks to the help of my Elmer, Dale, W0EZT (now UB), I obtained my novice license while in high school, obtaining the call WN0HAW. In less than a year, I passed the General test & my call became W0HAW.
While in college in Illinois, I obtain a second call K9EWB. I was chief operator of the cub station, which call was 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.

The pictures below were taken in June 2012 & show my son & me installing two new HyGain beams: 20M 4L monobander & a HyGain 10/15M duobander. The tower is a TriEx 71 ft. 4-section crank up. We rented a 40' boom-lift to speed up the installation of the beams. We were assisted by Don, KF6AUP.
My xcvr is a Yaesu FT-1000MP. I have not used an amplifier since 1994
