I am formally K5UBL from Moss, Ms (Jones county). I was first licensed in 1959 at age 12. My brother is also a ham, currently K5WK, but originally licensed as K5RUO . We grew up in ham radio, building from scrap parts and kits, We built quads from cane poles, angle iron, and old motor windings. My so called, Relaxation Oscillator, timed RC circuits with wildly blinking neon lights, won first prize in our 8th grade "science fair".   With weird wires around, strange noises and occasional TVI, we for some reason were misunderstood by our country, non ham neighbors.

These days, my xyl (Jan, KC5PQG) and I live about half our time in a fifth-wheel camper (Mountainaire by Newmar 40 ft). We travel, fish and hunt at every opportunity. We currently spend most our time at Pickwick Lake on the Tennessee River. Ham radio however is a bit restrained with antennas. I use a Butternut on the RV but manage pretty well. I enjoy ragchewing, and dxing. My rig in the camper is a Yaseau FT-1000 MP MK-V and Ameritron ALS-600. You will most likely find me on CW since it is my first love .When I'm not on CW, I also hang on 75 m ssb, 3838, 3842.5 in mornings.

When I am not at Pickwick Res. fishing or hunting, I have another station in Petal , Ms. It consist of an Orion II, superloop, and 8 element LP up 60 feet.

In 2012 I started into beekeeping. I have enjoyed watching and learning about them. Fascinating creatures.

I joined IBM Corporation in 1966. I have held various jobs but spent most my career (23 years of 30 years) in marketing. I spent my first 7 years as an OPCE and afterwards changed into marketing for my other 23 years. I retired from IBM December 31, 1996 as Account Manager with 30 years service. I attended Shady Grove High School, Jones Junior College, University of Southern Mississippi, University of Miss, and Delta State University.

Jan and I have been blessed with two great children, a son and a daughter. They have given us 7 grandchildren and all make us proud. Our son is an active Extra Class ham AB5TT, ex 7j6ACF, a scoutmaster, and a Gideon. Our daughter, Shannon, is married to a great guy and are both very active in their church.

I have had many years to enjoy the hobble and have achieved several milestones along the way. However, the one I am most proud is having been invited into the FOC organization by my fellow CW amateurs. I am often around the FOC CW frequencies.  Frequences are found at FOC.com    I am FOC 1948

Come by and visit us sometime and we will make up a pot of coffee, and eat some of Jan's famous pound cake if we are lucky.
