Moved to the USA in 2001 and sat the Tech exam, passed my Amateur Extra on the 18th of November 2005, received the callsign of AI4MT, previously held the callsign of KG4TPO. I have since applied for and been granted this Vanity Callsign of NN4F active as of October 2nd 2007
I am a big CW fan although it took me many years to pass the test, I didn't think I would ever use it, well seems i now like it! and use it regularly, since passing my extra in Nov 2005, I can average around 25-30 wpm, I got my speed up using a combination of g4fon and teach, both excellent programs.
You can find me most evenings on 28.450 with the local gang, or on 20m Calling CQ around - 14.170+/-
