Amateur Radio and I have been together for many years.  "Elmers"were DXers Frank W9DUB(SK) and George W9EVT, whose Amateur Radio Station at a Boy Scout Summer camp in Northern Wisconsin inspired me to get my ticket when in my teens. "Novice Class" licenses began in 1951  and I was one of the first in line  to sit for it at the FCC in my hometown of Chicago and became  WN9OGY  then went to  W9OGY after upgrading to General Class while at the  University of Wisconsin.  After school I spent an obligatory 3 years in the US Navy and served as communications officer on a Destroyer mainly sailing the waters of the Med.

When I returned to civilian my career was in commercial broadcasting which eventually took me back to Chicago where I was an on-air radio personality during the 1960s - a fantastic period of great rock music. Later I transitioned to Television in the '80s as program host and then on-air air TV meteorologist in Baltimore and Washington DC.  I became W3HHI then Extra Class AE3C. I received my present call  K3SC in 1996.

The set up is modest mix of old & new - Yaesu FT-1000MP - Heil HC4 - Heil ProSet Elite, Bencher BY1 keyer - my old vintage Collins 30L1 Amp purchased new in 1964 still works great. Other gear includes an LDG AT1000 Pro II Autotuner - a Diawa CN-801HP SWR/Power Meter also a Yaesu FT450 used primarily for 6M.  Tower: Universal self-standing @ 60 feet (20M ) @300M high.  Antennas: Hygain TH-7 stacked w/ a Cushcraft A50-5S 6M/ topped with a KLM 12-17-30 Vertical. Wires include an optomized ZS6BK/G5RV.  I am also QRV on WSPR - TX/RX  HF @ WARC  DXCC Honor Roll 347 mixed

QTH is North Central Maryland 65km from Washington DC and 55 km from Baltimore. Member: ARRL and PVRC (Potomac Valley Radio Club)  Earlier this year I had  the pleasure of operating  W1AW/3 for the ARRL's 100th Anniversary  for several days from contest station W3LPL which near my QTH.

Thanks for looking in!  73,  Ron, K3SC
