Licensed since Spring 1961 when I was 13. Learned the code as a Boy Scout at age 11, 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, 30, and 20. Have 4 married children and 12 grandchildren. I am semi-retired and work part time for a small consulting firm developing computer simulations.
My station is simple. A Kenwood TS-520S station sits on the bottom, with my FTDX 3000 station on top. 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. There is anSX-71 off camera that is not my original, but better than the one I had in the early 60's. I use it for SWL today, and it is driving an R-46B speaker that hangs on the wall to the right of the operating position.
We have HOA restrictions, and so my only antenna for the past 20 years has been a Gap Challenger vertical.
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. SKCC # 326; CFO # 299; CW Ops # 1206; SOWP # TA-95.
Ask me about John 14:6.
