I became licensed as a novice (KN6YEK) in 1956 and upgraded to technician (K6YEK) in 1957. My first station included a Heathkit AR-3, a Hallicrafters S-20R with a homebrew 6m converter and a WRL Globe Chief followed by a WRL Globe Scout with home brew antennas. I went off the air in 1968 due to work commitments and let my license lapse while in grad school (1972).

In June, 2012 I received my general class license as KJ6YIP and applied for my old call sign back receiving it at the end of June. The following month I passed the Extra class exam and received my Extra class license. I also went through the certification process to become a VE.

I  owned a fabric awning company in San Leandro, CA for 21 years until 2007 when I sold the company and retired. I continue to be active with the Western Canvas Products Association and volunteer my time as a board member (president) of Birthright of San Lorenzo, a crisis pregnancy center.

My station consists of a Yaesu FT-950 into either a trap dipole in an inverted "V" or a Gap Titan-DX antenna mounted on the roof of my home.

You can generally find me on the 3905 Century Club 40m SSB & 75m SSB nets as well as chasing counties, states for the 5 band WAS, dx and rag chewing.

I am happy to exchange QSL cards and if I haven't sent one out first, will promptly reply to all cards received. A SASE is not required.  I also upload my log to LOTW & will upload to e-QSL if you want to go that route.  I still, however, prefer the paper QSL cards.  If I somehow missed sending you a card, send me an e-mail with the particulars and I will get one right out.

Look forward to talking with you on the air. 73, Bill
