First licensed in 1959 as a Novice with the call sign KN5WLQ.. As a novice I worked the lower 48 with a Halicrafters S-38E and a converted ARC-5 transmitter . With my license about to expire I updated to Techinican and built several home brew 6 meter rigs plus a couple of Heathkit rigsfinallt upgrafing to General in 1970 - School, work and other intrest got the best of me license expired. My intrest in ham radio was re-newded in 2003 thanks to Jerry K5AXN who contacted me and encourged me to re-new my license. I re-took the General class license exam in August 2003 and received the call KD5ZAW ... As a CW operator I could never get use to the new call so I applied for and received my original call which was thankfully still avaliable. I passed the Extra Class license exam in April 2006.

I enjoy operating CW, SSB and a little AM on 80 metersbut most of my operatimg time is spent chasing DX on CW. I have a collection of Heathkit Boat anchors for AM ,. I recently sold my FT2000 replacing it with a FTDX5000Mp . I have a Alpha 87a that I can use when I need the extra punch.

Thanks for reading my bio... I hope to work you on the bands
