I was originally licensed as a 13-year old Novice in 1969 as WN2KPB. I scraped together my pennies, bought and built Heathkit’s DX-60B transmitter and HR-10 receiver, had our TV repairman help me tune ‘em up, and my Dad and I put up an inverted V antenna at the house. But then life got in the way, my license expired without the important upgrade to Technician, and the gear was eventually sold. I have finally gotten my priorities straight, passed the Technician and General tests in 2008 and the Amateur Extra test in 2009, changed my call sign (from KE5VRR), bought a new Ten-Tec Jupiter, and have been having SSB and PSK31 fun on 20, 40, and 75 meters with that good ol’ inverted V. From here on, the sky’s the limit!
