Originally licensed in 1957 as KN4MVL and have held the same call continuously for nearly 57 years (less the N). Earned Extra class in 70s and have been on again / off again active throughout all these years. Work most bands except 160 but may give that one a try soon. Just recently began operating on 6 and am having fun on "The Magic Band".6 meter Operations began April 2012 and now have 46 states and 47 DXCC worked on 6 with a homebrew 6 el beam at about 35 feet right now. Still learning new things about this hobby. Antenna improvements in the works. Mess around on 144 SSB on rare ocassions plus the usual 2 meter and 440 repeater stuff locally.

Rig currently is a Kenwood TS 2000S and TL 922 with Kenwood TM 241 and TM 441 mobiles for VHF/UHF FM at home but have operated TS 520 (my old faithful backup rig, complete with D104), TS 130, TS430 as well as Heathkit DX 35 with HQ 100 (novice rig which I still have), Heathkit Apache, EICO 753 and a homebrew 813 KW in my earlier AM days.Pretty much all Yaesu on the road with FT 857 and FT60.

Earned a first class commercial ticket in 1960 and worked my way through Ga Tech as broadcast engineer for WQXI AM and FM in Atlanta, Ga along my way to a degree in electrical engineering. I am now at the beginning of my retirement after careers in multiple electronics industries and companies. I am looking forward to having more time to pursue ham radio along with RC model aircraft, sailing, grandchildren and many other interests.

If you hear me on, please say hi and stop for a chat. I still enjoy ragchewing although it seems to be a dying part of our hobby. DX stations are always welcome and glad to provide EM70 to those who want the grid. CW spoken here also but somewhat rusty from lack of use.

2013-06-14 Finally came into the 21st Century and loaded old paper logs into logging program, First few batches loaded to LOTW and more to come soon. Thanks to all who have done so for our QSOs.I will respond to all incoming QSL cards. NA stations, SASE PSE to listed address or LOTW.

73 to all
