I was first licensed as WA9JCO in 1963. I lived and operated from N.E. Illinois until 2007. In 2007, my XYL and I retired and moved to N.E. Wisconsin. We built a new home on the Menominee River about 60 miles north of Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Menominee River divides Wisconsin from the upper peninsula of Michigan. When I look out of the ham-shack window, I look accross the river at the state of Michigan. I really enjoy my retirement here where I can persue my favorite activities. DXing, Fishing and Gardening. In the summer, I spend a lot of time fishing for smallmouth bass on the river with my two sons and friends when they come to visit. The Menominee River is one of the best smallmouth fisheries in the USA. My son's and I always practice "catch and release".
