A novice in 1967 and issued the call WN8YRW, I upgraded later that year to General and became WA8YRW. Held the calls WB9LOJ and KA0JPU before upgrading (finally) to Advanced and took the call KC9XB in 1982. A few weeks later, passed the Extra Class license test at the FCC office outside of Denver, Colorado. I took my current call sign in the autumn of 1983. I've lived in Wisconsin since 1995, and suceeded in convincing my XYL, Susan, to get her ticket: N9AVA.

Finished redesigning my antenna farm this summer (2015). More of an antenna garden, really.  The antenna for 40m and 30m is a DX Engineering 4030VA ground mounted with 60 radials stretched out on the ground beneath it.  For 20m its a ground plane vertical, elevated 10 feet with 4 radials. A dipole up a halfwave is used for 17m.  For 80/75m and the higher HFs, it's a Carolina Windom suspended at 40 feet. Yep, pretty much a 'lil pistol!

Rigs are a Yaesu FTDX5000MP and a Icom IC-7300. Use an amplifier ocasionally, an Ameritron AL-80B. I work in computer networking and find myself loathed to strap a computer to my rigs after a day's work, though I manage to keep my log on a computer which is uploaded regularly to LOTW. You'll find me mostly on CW and occasionally on SSB.
