Ham Member Lookups: 20344


Hello from W5SG, Bill in Klein, TX just NW of Houston. I obtained my Novice license when I was a freshman in high school as KN5ETJ. I was fortunate to have two great “elmers” in W5IKA and W5GEL while getting started in radio. After college and the Navy, I went to work for Rockwell International, then to Dresser Industries and finally retired from Emerson/Daniel in 2004. All of my work career was involved with measurement equipment for the oil and gas industry; primarily dealing with the design and manufacture of flow computers and gas chromatographs. I obtained my present call in the mid 70's and was quite active with contesting and DX chasing up until our son was born in 1983. After that, I was more or less inactive until just before retirement.

I put together a simple webpage that shows some pictures of my earlier stations as well as pictures of my other hobby at the following URL:


My present setup includes an Elecraft K3 transceiver, Elecraft KPA500 amplifier, Elecraft KAT500 antenna tuner, Elecraft P3 band scope, WinKey keyer, Chevron HCD paddle, Begali Sculpture paddle, and a Yaesu YO-301 monitor scope. Antennas include a delta loop for 80 through 10 meters, a inverted "L" for 160 meters, and a Squalo for 6 meters.
