First licensed as WN4UBM on 08/31/76. After upgrade became WA4UBM. WAS as a novice on CW. Now have 5band WAS, DXCC Honor Roll, 5 band DXCC. Trustee of Central Ky. ARC. Retired after 25 years as a social worker for the state of Ky. Became a registered nurse, mostly in psychiatric care. In 2003 I went to work for the State of Ky. in termination of parental rights cases (adoptions). Finally, I retired effective 12/01/11 and this is the best job I ever had. Married 46 years. Wife is a retired 4th grade school teacher. She is an amazing woman, having survived lymphoma and breast cancer twice. Then osteomyeilitis and bacterial meningitis. We have two boys ages 42 and 37.
I finally worked the last one I needed to have them all, mixed, BS7 for top of the honor roll. My total entities is at 353. I am also working on 5 band WAZ. I have 10 through 40 finished and lack a few ones on 80. I have finished up DXCC on 160, 30, 17 and 12 meters, QRP and RTTY. My goal is to have DXCC on 160 through 6. DXCC is very tough on 6 from south central Kentucky. So far, I am at 96/94 and waiting for the next big opening. I have plenty of grids for VUCC but have not gotten around to submitting them. I have decided to work on VUCC on 2 meters as well and now have 78 grids confirmed and 93 worked. I have worked and confirmed 31 states on 2 meter cw and ssb as well. I keep records for the county award but don't usually chase counties. However, if a card comes in that is a new county I log it in the county book. If you are in South Central Ky., try the mighty 64 repeater. It is on 146.64 with an antenna at over 850 ft. and open, requiring no tone. 73 and hope to catch you on the air.
