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. I haven't much of an antenna farm, really. More of an antenna garden, and that garden became smaller this summer (2014). The tripod mounted HF5B at 22 feet and 3 elements on six meters at 25 feet had to come down as I had to replace the roof. Now that garden consists of a 6BTV ground mounted in a field with 30 radials, a Carolina Windom (apex at 40 feet), and a vertical ground plane with raised radials. Yep, pretty much a 'lil pistol!

Rigs are a Yaesu FTDX5000MP and a Kenwood TS590S. 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.
