Amateur Radio and I have been together many years. "Elmers" were DXers Frank W9DUB, and George W9EVT, whose ham setup at a Summer Scout camp in Northern Wiscsonsin inspired me to seriously prep a ham ticket. The "new Novice Class" kicked off in 1951 and I was one of the first to get my license thanks to the 5 wpm code test I took at the FCC in my hometown of Chicago. First call was WN9OGY then W9OGY after upgrading to General Class while attendingthe University of Wisconsin.

I had a long career in broadcast media, working on the "talent" side of commercial radio and TV beginning in Wisconsin, then Chicago during the 1960's. In the 70's my career took me to the East Coast where I was W3HHI (poor call for a cw guy!) - then Extra Class AE3C. In 1996 I receivedmy present Vanity call K3SC. Over the years Ham activity has been very active, somewhat active, or inactive, depending upon family life, career demands, and sunspots - along the way I picked up a few awards including DXCC Honor Roll, (347 mixed) and met alot of great people around the planet thanks to this fantastic hobby. I semi-retired in 2009 .

Station is modest mix of old & new - Yaesu FT-1000MP - Heil HC4 - Bencher BY1 keyer. a vintage Collins 30L1 Amp - Diawa CN-801HP SWR/Power Meter- and a Yaesu FT450 -mainly used for 6M & travel. Tower is a Universal self-standing @ 60 feet (20M )(300M ASL). Antennas: Hygain TH-7 stacked w/ a Cushcraft A50-5S for 6m - topped with a KLM 12-17-30 Vertical (rescued from Roge K5VRX's junk pile)

Just addedan optomized ZS6BKW/G5RV - Spring project will be a sloper for 160. Fantastic new addition is a LDG AT1000 Pro II Autotuner - 2013 Christmas gift from XYL. (Tks K3GEN for suggesting)

QTH - North Central Maryland - 70km from Washington DC and 60 km from Baltimore. Prefer CW - operate SSB now and then - enjoy the DX pile-ups. Member ARRL and PVRC (Potomac Valley Radio Club) - volunteer card sorter for the ARRL 3rd District Incoming DX QSL Bureau.

Pse QSL Direct or via Bureau.

73s and Tnx for looking in! Ron, K3SC
