I first got my ham ticket as a technician class in the United States in 1993. I was stationed in Huntsville Alabama at Redstone Arsenal, as an army medic. I remember going to the club, taking the test, and getting my first hand held radio. On the test paperwork I documented my address as my home of record in Michigan, hence my call KC8CAM. Shortly after I got out of the hobby. My next duty assignment was Schofield barracks Hawaii. while there, I did some training in Australia where I met my wife, Angela. We got married in Hawaii, stayed for about a year, and then moved to Ft. Carson Colorado. after a couple years I decided to live in Australia and earn a degree in nursing. While in australia I got a reciprocal licence. Soon after the morse code requirement was abolished and I got a full call. In October 2009 I went back to Hawaii for a holiday and earned my extra class licence. I earned my certificate of code profiency from the ARRL for 25 WPM. I have many awards including the DXCC and WAC AWARD and I'm a member of the A-1 operator club. I still to this day remember going out on fox hunts with my dad who was a great ham. his call was K8UP. He became SK on 27th of June 2011 and I have taken over his call sign. I also remember my mom talking on the repeater while driving me to scout camp. She is still a ham and her call sign is N8FE. my brother's call sign is K8KHZ and he is very active as well.
