I have been a Ham for 47 years. I was first exposed to ham radio by my uncle Leroy K6HMP. He was active on HF and one of the early experimenters on VHF and UHF. I caught the Ham bug at the age of 11. I studied hard and passed the novice tests at 12 years old, this was 1959. My first call was WV6NSV. Boy was I excited! About 6 months later I upgraded to the General Class with the new call of WA6NSV. I was active on HF for the next 5 years. My early rig was a Johnston Adventurer running about 50 watts CW only with a Halicrafters S-38 receiver. I worked the world with that little rig. I went into the ARMY in 1966 as a radio morse code operator. I was stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska. In 1973 I was selected for Army Helicopter Flight School. I flew helicopters for the US ARMY until 1980 when I became a civilian again. While an Army pilot I was based in Korea where I operated as HL9UT using only a Heath kit HW-8 QRP rig and a very high dipole up about 80 feet. I worked over 100 countries with that little 3 watt rig. I upgraded to an Advanced license in about 1977 with the call of KB6HE. I finally upgraded to EXTRA class in 1999 with my current call. I am very active again on HF with my little Elecraft K2 and Ft-817. I am currently operating QRP from home and portable. I like CW and the digital modes. Love to experiment with stealth antennas. 73,s
