First licensed in the summer of 1962 as WN2DBP, 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 a Heathkit DX-60 transmitter, and a Lafayette Radio HE-30 receiver. 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 however, 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).
