Took my Novice and General exams at the FCC offices in Wash. DC in 1977 and received WB3JHP/WN. I operated HF, VHF(eme) from Maryland before moving to the Shenandoah Valley of VA, retaining WB3JHP, where I operated HF and some VHF(ssb).

After 40 years in the publication printing industry, I retired and moved to GA. Finally decided it was time for a call sign change to better represent my station location, so applied for and received W4TMW.

I enjoy operating HF (CW) and VHF/UHF (SSB,CW) also work in my machine shop designing and building model internal combustion engines and telegraph keys of various kinds for my personal use.

Here are a few of my more interesting keys

Below: my straight key I call 'The Slab' .                                     Below: a copy of a Robley & Tough- Piergraph No. 2, a 1930's Australian key.

This is my straight key, I call The Slab.           This is a copy of the Robley & Tough- Piergraph No.2, a 1930's Austrailian key

 Below: My copy of WB9LPU's                                                   Below: This is my 'Zig-Zag' bug. Dots made by the

'Balanced Bug', a really neat key.                                                 oscillating pendulum and dashes by reed switch.

                                   

   

 

 

       Left is my Lady Bug, it's an vertical oscillating pendulum bug.

 

 

           The key below is my latest bug (Nov. 2015). I call it the 'SOS bug' which stands for

               the Son of Slab. It was made to match my "Slab" straight key but it's actually a bug.

              The top is an aluminum cap which is positioned by 2 pins in the brass base. It's also

               a 'pendulum' type key with reed switching contacts. I've used all these keys on the air.
