I was originally licensed in 1972 and have held the following calls: WN9JQS, WB9TVH, AD4YH. W4AUV was my father's call back in the 60s. I served in the US Coast Guard as an electronics technician [1974-1978] specializing in high power HF communications and radar. I'm one of those "old school" radio guys, operating mostly CW on the low ends of 40 or 80 meters. Currently I operate 99% CW from either my TS590 or a FT1000MP that used to belong to my friend N4HAF Neal (now silent key). Below is a picture of Neal and I taken a few years ago. I am also very active with HF mobile, mostly on 40M. (W4AUV/m)
New! Look for me on PSK31.
am also active on 75 meter AM with restored vintage equipment. Come join us in the AM window: [3880-3885-3890]. Pictured above is my AM station: The Apache TX1and matching Mohawk RX1 receiver. You can also hear me with the Apache on 40 and 80 CW with my Vibroplex bug!
I do not do the QSL card thing. Sorry.
Here is the"Vertical Half Square" antenna! It is up about 80 feet. SIMPLE TO BUILD, CHEAP, HIGHLY EFFECTIVE!
There also is a Bazooka dipole for 40 meters up 50 feet underneath the vertical half square

I took my Extra Class exam in 1978 at the FCC office in Chicago. Below is a scan of the "old school" cerfificate issued by the FCC.
