Update on the photo.
Sadly, our father, Jack, KG7X (ex-W7IVB) passed away in 2011.
Robert (my son) studied hard and upgraded to Amateur Extra Class License and requested and was granted Dad's call sign, so Robert is now KG7X (ex-KB7JEC).
Additionally, my grandson, Alex has been studying hard and we expect that he will take the test very soon. It is probable (from results on practice tests) that he will be able to pass both the Technician Class and General Class license exams. I will update with additional information as it becomes available, but if/when that happens, Alex will be the first 4th generation Amateur Radio Operator in our family.
Update (2/4/2013): The FCC posted a call for Alex this morning. (Thanks to Bob, K9WMP's quick paperwork). Alex's new call is KG7AZV. Congrats Alex!
I also wanted to add another family licensed amateur to the list, Kenton Towner, KF4YXP, (my apologizes for not getting this info on here sooner). Although he uses his radio for emergency situations rather than recreational, he still learned the necessary material, took and passed the test and obtained his Call Sign, and he very much is a part of the family.
One note on my locator - DM43cj - which is the correct locator. However, since my PO box is not at quite the same location as my home, a search with the ZIP code may show a different locator, but DM43cj is correct for my station location.
Update (as of 6/2/2014) I would like to welcome my Nephew, Jack III (son of Jack Jr, KN7Y) to the ranks of Amateur Radio. He studied and passed his Technican Class Exam, and recieved the call KG7HWP. Congrats Jack!
