Howdy! from the great State of Texas.
KA5V is not a vanity call. It was issued to me after completing the written part of the Extra Class exam at the Federal Building, FCC officies, in downtown Dallas in March 1979. I passed the 20 words per minute code test 30 days prior to taking the written part.
First licensed as WB5WZG in 09/1976, upgrading to Advanced in 12/1977, and Extra in 03/1979 with the call KA5V.

I found the fun of 6 meters in January 2009, EM11dj. I will be looking for you.
If I am not on the golf course, (retired Accountant for TXU in Dallas), I will be on the bands looking for you. I am a DX'er, at one time "Top of Honor Roll" (had them all), although now need 1, BS7 (Still need BS7 as of May 2007; My wife and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary in Hawaii while BS7 was on the air).Thanks for reading and good luck getting the new one. Quit reading this and get on the bands. In 2003 I moved from the Dallas area to the hill country in Gatesville, Texas; Coryell County. Have Fun! Jimmy Miles, KA5V Gatesville, TX
