I was first licensed in 1957, as KN3CLZ, at the age of 17. At that time, the Novice license was good for only one year and not renewable. Six months later, I was in the Navy, at sea, out of the country, so the license expired. It would be 22 years until I was again licensed, as a novice. The upgrade to General, as N5FLZ, happened in 1982, and to extra class in 2001. Chasing DX is now my main interest and I'm mostly on the HF bands.
As of April 2012, I am living in the Republic of Panama, now on the Pacific coast in the area called Playa Coronado, and my call sign there is HP1BD. Look for me on the spotting nets. NX4O will continue to be on the air when I am in the US, but I seem to be in an RF dead zone with minimal antennas since I am in a restricted townhouse community. I don't expect too much from this location, but in Panama I am located in a blessed propogation area less that eight degrees north of the equator and my 300 watts and a two element beam seem to be able to work the world with ease. a DX'ers dream. Send me an email for a sched, if you like.
Update: I am presently in the US for Family Medical care, probably until October, 2014.
Update 2: We've had a death in the family, so it will probably be sometime late November, or early December until I return to Panama. I have a mountain of loose ends to deal with here. If you need a card from either NX4O or HP1BD, send your card to the above address in the US. I'll be happy to accomodate. , a,,,,, and
