Hello from N4RLD, Thank you for the nice QSO if we just worked and if you are a SWL station thank you for listening.
My favorite mode of operation is CW and I have been on the air since May of 1970, Thanks to a wonderful 9th grade science teacher named Jim Abercrombie, N4JA formerly K4BMS back at that time. I enjoy ragchewing and chasing a little DX now and then. I am looking forward to the new solar cycle and I am hoping to put a few more countries into the worked category. CW is my favorite mode and it has been since the first days as a ham. What makes it special to me is the same as what makes antique furniture special to someone else. I know many say that it is no longer needed but I think it somehow links me to the pioneers of wireless communications and I enjoy being able to operate the mode. I will continue to use cw as long as there is another station to work and I will continue to help others who want to practice the art. I will pass it on just like the earlier pioneers of amatuer radio did for me. I look forward to talking with you again and I hope the enjoyment you first had on the air continues to the last SK.

My first station as a Novice. Just found this picture on an old negative and had the folks at Walgreens to put it on a disc for me.
I think my age here is 15.
