I have been a licensed ham radio operator since 1948; First call was W0LNE which I held until 1967 when I moved to Gainesville Florida. Held W4TLN from 1967 until 2001 when I moved to North Texas and got the Vanity Call, N5YJ.
Poverty restricted my early hamming to qrp cw. Lots of fun, mostly enjoying rag chewing and keeping skeds with friends.
Now I'm 86 years old and my wife of sixty-three and a half years and I are living in an active senior's retirement community, THE ASPENS AT TWIN CREEKS in Allen, Texas.
Here we have the good fortune that the management has encouraged the resident hams to form THE ASPENS AMATEUR RADIO CLUB and has made a room available for a HAMSHACK.
The Club call is K5ASP and there's a QRZ K5ASP page with info about the club.
I'm the trustee of the Club and use both K5ASP and N5YJ when operating from the CLUB HAMSHACK.
I bought a FLEX 1500 transceiver at HAMCOM in June 2014 and am having a lot of fun learning to use this amazing little software defined radio. Enjoying the challenges of QRP. Have joined QRP ARCI and am member number 15473.
Fellow ASPENS HAM CLUB member John, W5AIM, has helped me a lot to install the software needed to bring the FLEX 1500 fully to life.
The FLEX 1500 is supported by a gaming machine, a CyberPowerPC which has an AMD FX.-4300 Quad Core 3.8 GHZ processor and 8 Gig RAM.
I am also using HRD and DM-780 (Version 18.104.22.168).
