As a 12 year old I received my first call, WA2QVO while growing up in Schenectady, NY. My grandfather, Olgierd "Augie" Weiss Sr, WB2NYM was my mentor. I remember sitting on his lap as a little boy always trying to speak into the microphone. Loved it. I started in the hobby extremely spoiled as I was operating a Collin S Line, SB-220 and the antenna was a 4 element 20 meter mono-bander on top of a hill in Loudonville, NY. I currently live in McDonough, GA with my wife and 2 children, Amateur Radio is by far my favorite hobby. On the radio almost everyday mainly CW, chasing DX and participating in the NTS cw nets for Georgia. My previous calls were WA2QVO, WB2NYM, K4ZC, and the current call N2WF. Station consists of the Ten Tec Orion I and Omni VI plus. Antenna is an Opti-beam 12-4 on 90 feet of Rohn 45 and the Inverted V for 80 meters. I'm employed by Delta Airlines as an Aircraft Mechanic, and also serving my 27th year in the military flying as a C5-M Flight Engineer. I do my best to send and return QSL cards.
P.S. I still have the Collins S Line
