New Call Sign

On July 31st 2012, I was issued call sign K9YM. It was previously held by Mike, of Madison, WI. Because of computerized logs, many QSO's of the previous call sign holder come up during my QSO's. This can be confusing, especially with DX stations, where there may be a language barrier. My name is Dave, I am in Rockton, IL. Hopefully the old data,will eventually, be updated, log by log :).

 

I was first licensed in 1962, when I was 15. I was issued the call sign WN9FDA. That was back when the license was good for a year. I upgraded to Technician in 1963 and to Conditional class* in 1966, with call sign WA9FDA. When the vanity call sign program came along, I dropped the "A" and went to W9FDA. In 2004 I upgraded to Extra Class.

I spent 3 years in the US Army, Military Police Corps, during the Vietnam conflict. Upon leaving the Army, in 1969, I was hired as a police officer with the Janesville, Wisconsin Police Department. I worked there for 31 1/2 years, retiring in Dec of 2000 as a lieutenant. My wife, Kathy, is a 4TH grade teacher, she also is retired. I have two great kids, Sara, who is an Asst District Attorney for Milwaukee County, and Steve who graduated from Beloit College and is currently employed by the State of California court system, as an auditor.

The station includes a Yaesu FT-2000D, an Ameritron AL-572 Amplifier, along with the Ameritron ATR 30 Antenna tuner. I have been off the air for 6 years,after we moved to Il. I just recently put up a Zerofive 30 ft flagpole antenna. I have 35, 30 foot ground radials.

I am active in and enjoy the HHH worked all states and DX net on 7.190 daily at 0700 GMT.

Since retirement I have been getting back into ham radio and having a lot of fun doing it.

*Conditional Class, back then, meant you were located to far from an FCC field office and the General Class code and exam was administered by a volunteer examiner. In my case I was in the US Army in West Germany when I took the Conditional Class exam. Some time later, the FCC dropped the Conditional Class and all Conditonal Class licenses were grand fathered to General Class.

73's
