Born in 1946. I joined the Amateur Radio ranks at the age of 16, while taking an Industrial Arts class in high school in 1962. I obtained my Novice license, WN5CHX, with some mentoring from Roland Jenkins, WA5BUA (SK). Shortly thereafter I upgraded to a Conditional License obtaining call WA5CHX.

Was active mostly on CW and AM during my college years. As the years passed, I became inactive in ham radio due to family and work obligations.

Rick Breaux, N5RLM, who was licensed at the same time as I in 1962, Elmer'd me back into ham radio hobby with encouragement. In March 2001, I passed the Technician and General Examination test and received the call KD5NOZ, but quickly changed that to Vanity call WA5CHX, my old call. My first transceive was an Icom 756MKII with dipoles. Two years later I upgraded to Extra and obtained Vanity call NA5Q, which is a better CW, RTTY, SSB contesting call. Check my website http://www.na5q.us/station.htm for my station information.

Since re-entering the hobby I have met many good elmer's and friends, like Charles, K5UA and Charlie, KI5XP who got me interested and involved in contesting, DX and RTTY. Rick, N5RLM, Pat, W5WMU and Buddy, N5AN have also assisted me greatly in this wonderful hobby.

I am active in the Acadiana Amateur Radio Association radio club, having served as a director and president, check out their website at http://www.w5ddl.org. I am a charter member of the Louisiana Contest Club, check out website at http://www.louisianacontestclub.org.

Membership organizations I belong to:

TEN-TEN, FISTS, SKCC, ARRL, AARA (Acadiana Amateur Radio Assoc.)  and LCC (Lousisian Contest Club).

I like rag chewing, but my primary interest is in chasing DXCCand participating in Contests.

My station consists of a Flex 6300 transceiver and QRO with an ACOM 2000a. My antenna's are an Steppir 4E 40-6m, 80m Inv. Vee and 160m sloper. Antenna's located on my 60 ft Heights Tower that reclines. Primary logging is done on Logic 9 (General logging) and Writelog (Contest logging).
