QSL image for NR9Q




I first got licensed in September of 2008. At the time I was on a 2 week leave from my deployment to Kuwait and Iraq. I got interested in getting my license from a buddy I was deployed with, Jack (KR9Q). Jack showed me everything he could about radio and how to obtain the study material in our spare time. When I came back for my leave, my wife asked me what I wanted to do while I was back. I told her, of course, I just want to spend time with the family and that there was a test I wanted to take in Peoria, IL. She thought that was odd that I wanted to take a test on my short time home. I took the test and was not issued my call until I was back overseas. I received the call KC9OJQ.

When I got back from my deployment at the end of January I started the task of getting on the air. Not long after that I Joined the local club (WIARC) and upgraded to General on May of 2009 here in Quincy, Illinois. I waited a year and with a little push from my first contact on the radio and good friend Jim (WB9OTW now N9JI) I upgraded to my Extra in August of 2010. When I upgaded I decided to see what call they would issue me. The FCC gave out AB9XD. I did not much care for this call so I applied for NR9Q and was soon after granted the call. Since then I was managed to put together a meager operating station. Like most new hams I am bouncing everywhere in search of what I enjoy most in the hobby.
