Ham Member Lookups: 4934

I was first licensed as WN7EKN in Seattle in 1956 at the age of 12, but never upgraded. While serving in the Army in Germany in 1962, I renewed my interest in ham radio. However, there was the problem of the non-renewable Novice ticket at that time and it was a major problem trying to discipline myself to study the code and theory. Then came marriage, kids and all of the etceteras of life.

In 1972, when the rules changed, I got the Novice ticket again as WN7UAW, and when my employment sent me to West Virginia for 4 years, I upgraded to Advanced while there with WB8REY as my call. Upon our return to Seattle, I applied for a 7-land call and got KB7DY and have kept it and the Advanced ticket ever since.

I've been operating from the same location since 1976. I operate primarily CW and BPSK these days, but spend a little of my time on RTTY too. Being retired for 15 years and finally having my honey-dos finished, I'm looking forward to lots of operating hours from now on. (Update: Well, shoot! They're never finished!)

I can be found on 2M/70cm in my Ford Ranger (the only place I use a mike) most times I am driving.

The HF station is an Icom-746 into either a home-brew dipole (wire) or a TH3-JRS Tribander up 25 feet. I enjoy ragchewing and finding out more about the guy on the other end, regardless of where he is located. Heck, in all my years of operating at this QTH, it took me until late 2007 to get all the states for WAS! If you hear (or see) me on and like a good ragchew, grab a cup of coffee (or a thermos) and give me a call.
