Bill Axelrod was first licensed in 1956 at the age of 13 with the call sign KN2SLL. Subsequent calls have been K2SLL, K3DDW, W4SFP, K3WA, ND9E, and now K3WA again. An avid DXer and contester, Bill has also operated from a variety of DX locations including KA2 (formerly US stations in Japan), KH6 (Hawaii), KL7 (Alaska), and SV0 (Greece). Now that was fun!
Bill is a retired naval officer (31 years service). After his first retirement he worked for defense contracting firms until his 'real' retirement in January 2009.
Now Bill stays occupied enjoying retirement, working out at the local gym, planting antennas as he grows the K3WA antenna farm, contesting, chasing those "rare" ones, engaging in the occasional rag chew, participating with the local ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) group, and preparing for the next contest.
Bill is a member of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), Peoria Area Amateur Radio Club (PAARC), the Potomac Valley Radio Club (PVRC), the Society of Midwest Contesters (SMC), and the newly founded CWops club.
