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 43 years. Wife is a retired 4th grade school teacher. She is an amazing woman, having survived lymphoma and breast cancer twice. We have two boys ages 39 and 34.
I finally worked the last one I needed to have them all, mixed, BS7 for top of the honor roll. 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. I also have over 100 confirmed on RTTY and have submitted them to the ARRL. 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 92/91 and waiting for the next big opening. 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. Recently, I received my DXCC QRP running only 1.5 watts. If you are in South Central Ky., try the mighty 64 repeater. It is on 146.64 with an antenna at over 800 ft. and open, requiring no tone. 73
