As a 12 year old, I was visiting Lloyd Sherman W3CDY (sk). I was interested in his radio and Lloyd explained how I could become a ham. With Lloyd being my Elmer, and the ARRL study guides, in1973 I became WN3UUM.
My home QTH at that time was near Berlin, MD. My early interests were handling traffic, and working DX. A Heathkit DX60B and HR10B was my first setup.
Since 1982, I have been living in the Houston, Texas area.
Recently my radio interests have been in operating mostly on VHF/UHF. Presently I am QRV on HF, 50,144, 222, 432, and 1296. The picture has not been updated to show it, but the smallest tower now holds 4 10 element K5GW yagis for 2 meter eme.
I enjoy working meteor scatter on 50,144,or 222 MHz. If you are within 1300 miles of EL29pw, and wish a meteor QSO on any of those bands, please contact me.
