I became a novice in 1967 as WN9IHI, transmitting CW at a blistering speed of 5 WPM; however with no local club or Elmer for motivation, my interest in radio soon waned and my license expired.
After rearing four incredible children and having several career changes I settled down in Carlisle, PA with the wife of my youth, and amongst other things re-pursued ham radio. I passed the General exam in 2010 and became KB3VAX and eventually, got my Extra ticket. Praise God! I am sure glad that is over.
Currently I am the president of South Mountain Radio Amateurs, (n3twt.org) and their CVE, administer examinations for W5YI. SMRA is a dynamic and growing club with over 80 members, many who participate in the monthly meetings, nets and activities.
Ham radio is just plain fun, interesting and an excellent way to spend quality time with good people. The diverse interests and skills of most Hams in this group are remarkable.
What an enjoyable way to spend an evening when it is just you, your radio and the ionosphere! Life, sure is good, I am blessed.
