I was first licensed in the summer of 1962 as WN2DBP, when I lived in Bayside, NY in Queens, one of the boroughs of New York City. My General class license followed in November of 1963, as WB2DBP, a fairly rotten callsign for both code and voice. My rig was Heathkit equipment. After incentive licensing took effect, and my General class license no longer allowed me access to all amateur frequencies, I upgraded to Advanced class in June, 1969, regaining most of my lost frequencies.
After moving to Florida in 1974, I was issued WB4LAV, a better callsign than my original one. This callsign never did get on the air, as I was inactive after moving south. In 1979, after sending in my license renewal to the FCC, I was issued KC4VU. I thought the FCC had mistakenly issued me an Antarctic call sign. I got back on the air in early 1991 and upgraded to Extra class later that year.
I am now active on SSB & CW, on HF and 6 meters, and 2 meter FM.
I am a member of the South Florida DX Association (for more information on the SFDXA go to www.qsl.net/k4fk).
