Handle is Bill. I originally obtained my Novice licensed, WN2LYO, on Nov 22, 1963 - the day that President Kennedy was assinated.  That date holds a lot of memories for me.  The General license, WB2LYO, came a little over 5 months later on May 5, 1964.  Both licenses were granted when I was 15 years old and growing up near Schenectady, NY.  I used my home call /9 from 1966-1970 while attending Purdue University in W. Lafayette, Ind. And though amateur radio took a back seat for several years after college, I did get the new call, WB8TKD on Oct 11, 1974 while living near in Cleveland, OH. and K5WAF on Sep 19, 2000 while living in Houston, TX.  And I finally bit the bullet and got the Amateur Extra Class license on March 9, 2002.

Currently my station includes an IC-7800 and Flex 6700, IC-PW1 Linear with Steppir 3 Element Yagi/30-40m trombone, BigIR Vertical with 80m coil, dipole on 80meters, an Inverted L on 160m and a Pixel RF Pro 1B receive loop.

Currently I am active on the HF bands focused on the 2014 CQ DX Marathon and the W1AW Centenial QSO Party.  County Hunting, which has been on my radar for the last couple of years is taking a back seat in 2014, though I hope to pick it up again in 2015 and work for getting all 3077 on CW -- I am a couple of hundred short.   I have also been interested in DXpeditions -- though now it seems these are mostly in the rear view mirror. So far 9H3WF (March 2006), VP2V/K5WAF (2007), 5J0E (2008), C91TX (2009), H7V (2010) and 8P9WF (2011).
