Licensed since 1961 when I was 13. Learned the code as a Boy Scout, then was an active SWL for a couple of years. Am now active 80 through 10, with a little 6 and 2.
Prefer CW, mostly on 40 and 30. Have 4 married children and 12 grandchildren. I am semi-retired and work part time for a small consulting firm.
My station is simple. A Hallicrafters SX-71 sits on the immediate left, with my FTDX 3000 station in the center. A few odds and ends have accumulated over the years, and you will see a collection of things that span decades in the operating position. In the photo below are the HQ-170 receiver and Johnson Valiant II. The large Hallicrafters speaker (R-46B), partially visible on the wall to the right of the main table, is connected to the 170. If you zoom in on the photo, you can catch a glimpse of me and my 1963 station on the wall above the Valiant and 170. I look remarkably the same today!
This call was first issued to me in 1984 when we settled in Virginia permanently. I got caught in the vanity call sign rush in the late 90's and let the call go. I reclaimed it in 2008, and have been its only holder, despite the lapse. There are Greek words that go with the letters in the call, and they say "The Lord(K) Jesus(I) Christ(X) reigns(H)." True in my life since 1982.
Other calls that I have held: WV2RRX, WA2RRX, WD5CIW, KB6JW, KB2ID, W4JFA.
Ask me about John 14:6.
