FCC license shows my first name as "Thomas". If you hear me calling myself "Ron", that is because that is the name I grew up with. I'll answer to either one. ;)
I was first licensed in 1962 as WN5DIN, then WA5DIN in San Antonio. My first station was a Heathkit Sixer with a 5 element yagi at 25 feet.
I did not renew my license after I went into the service in 1966.
In May of 2000 I was relicensed and became KL7XL in Sitka, Alaska.
A move from Alaska to Texas in 2005 and I eventually ended up as NX5D.
In 2011 I moved to Minnesota and got the vanity call, NY0A.
NY0A was previously held by Edwin L. Kracl (SK 2005) of Mounds View, MN.
Radios: Icom 7600 and 7100, with W8ZR StationPro controller.
I prefer paper QSL’s and will reply 100% to all QSL cards sent direct, no SASE needed.
Bureau cards will be returned via Bureau. Note: If you have sent me a QSL via the Buro and have not received a card from me, please contact me via e-mail with the contact info so I can get a card out to you. The W0 Bureau has not been consistent in forwarding my QSL’s.
I do not use LOTW, but upload my log as a courtesy to those who do use it.
No E-QSL or QRZ logbook.
NOTE: Some callsign databases list my QTH Grid as EN25, which is correct for my Post Office mailing address, but I am physically located in EN24, about 1/4 mile south of the EN24/25 boundary, so EN24 is the correct Maidenhead Grid Square.
