"The Soviet Sputnik -- the first in the world" -- caught my attention when it was launched on October 4, 1957.
First licensed in 1958 as WV2BQJ in Syracuse, NY. Upgraded to General Class in 1959 as WA2BQJ
First station was Heathkit DX-40 and Hallicrafters SX-99 receiver, with an end-fed long wire. "Those Were The Days" -- especially for 10M DX !
Other calls held: Ohio (WB8CHZ), Pennsylvania (WA3VTM), and California (WA6OMA, KE6MI)
In 1976, my career took me to Silicon Valley, where I reconnected with amateur radio in the late 90s
I enjoy DXing, Ragchewing, Antenna Construction, and all aspects of Contesting
