First licensed as a Novice in October 1975 as WN3ANC from that rare DX state known as Delaware. My first station was the Heathkit DX-60B, HR-10B with the VFO HO-10. I had spent many hours as a teenager pounding out the code. When FCC decided to end the WN, KN calls my call was changed to WB3ANC where I kept the call for 25 years. I later entered the Navy as a Radioman, and spent many hours in the MARS station. Tired of still being a Novice, a group of my friends threw me in a car and off the the FCC building in San Diego where I passed my General class. About 4 years later, I was tired of the limited bands in the General class and again went to the FCC building in Boston where I passed my Advanced class and held it for about 15 years. In the latest change to make it easier to allow the chicken banders in (Which I am still unhappy about), I decided to get the Extra class the old fashioned way. Now as an Extra class, my hobbies are ELMERING the younger, and newer hams, collecting Collins equipment, and of course, CW!!! At present time, I am an Electrical Engineering consultant and work in the wireless field. I am also an avid supporter of ARRL, a Technical Specialist in the Western Washington area, and now an ARRL Mentor.
