My Dad and I passed our novice exam in 1958 and recieved the call signs KN0KFA and my Dad KN0KFB, Barney Sr. Later my Brother Barney Jr. came aboard as K0VUA. Much later my Father in law "Daddy John" went all the way to Advanced, passing 13 wpm at age 77 and became N5FQW. I checked into the MM Net many times during my 30 years in the oil patch. Thanks to the MM Net ( our meeting place ) and the hams that ran patches for us, we had many wonderful qso's. My J-38 still sets on the op desk and is frequently used. I have a 52' crank up with a TH6DXX an Inv Vee for 40-75 and an inverted L for 80-160. Im always on the lookout for DX and Special Event stations. Im slowly approaching 310 countries confirmed. My favorite S.E. efforts are The Navajo Code Talkers from Window Rock Arizona and The Route 66 On The Air. My "Blast from the Past" is talking to The Possum Trappers every night on 75 meters. This is as close to the 50's and 60's as you can get. Good ole fashioned round table !My station is an Icom 775 DSP and a Yaseu FL-2100 B amp. I like to collect old microphones and keys. You can never have too much "stuff" !! I still put my first store bought Xmtr. an Elmac AF-67 on the air from time to time. 73 es good hunting
