Ham Member Lookups: 7614

My start in amateur radio begin when I transferred to E.L. Meyers High School, Wilkes-Barre, PA, in 1963. Walking down the hall one day I spotted a sign on a door. It read: K3GTC Amateur Radio Station. I tracked down the electronics shop teacher, Asa Casterlin, W3QXW, who showed me the station. He copied some code for me and I was hooked. I changed my program to electronics and studied for my Novice exam. The rest is history. As WN3BCG I got on the air with a NC-88 receiver and Johnson 50w crystal transmitter in 1965.

In 1966 entered military service (Army)where I served as a Signal Officer.I left in 1970 to pursue my education. I reentered active military service again in 1972 (Marine Corps) and retired in 1990. I was ahelicopter pilot flying mainly the CH-46 Sea Knight. During that time, my ham radio activity was very limited and sporadic due to military deployments and school.

Over the years I've held the following previous calls: WN3BCG (Novice), WA3EHG, WA3SQT, KA5DX (when I lived in Iwakuni, Japan for 3 years from 1981 to 1984), and DL4KI(1967-69) operating from Kaiserslautern, Germany.

My operating is mainly CW with some RTTY. Need  FT8W for #1 Honor Roll.

In 2008 I retired as a Professor of Management with Keller Graduate School of Mangement, DeVry University. I currently am a Professor at the Army Management Staff College, Ft. Leavenworth, KS.

I am married and have two children, both grown and with families of their own.

We relocated to KS in October 2012 after 28 years in Virginia.

Note: I will be operating the Kansas QSO Party as N0L in August 2014.

73,

Ron
