I got my first license in April, 1954 as KN6ERF. I made regular trips to the FCC office in San Francisco to pass the Technician, General, Advanced and then Extra over a period of ten years. I kept the K6ERF call until the mid seventies when Extra Class amateurs were allowed to select a 1x2 call from a long list (that was a one time thing) I chose N6OX which I kept for about 20 years. I then went back to my old call for nostalgic reasons but I have missed the 1x2 call.
I worked for Pacific Telephone since 1954 in the Oakland, CA downtown office maintaining Panel Dial equipment.
I served in the US Naval Air reserve in Oakland, CA from 1955 to 1959 which included a 3 month accelerated training program.
I have been active on the VHF & UHF bands from 1955 to the present time. Currently I am on the HF bands participating in the digital modes JT65 & JT9.
I served in the 4th Army, 39th Infantry from 1959-1961
