First licensed in Chicago as KN9QCU in 1958 at the age of 14. Became K9QCU in 1959.
Came to Los Angeles in 1963, and was subsequently licensed as W6MJE (FCC mandated with call area change, "the way it should be") for more then 35 years.
Then reluctantly tried the Vanity Callsign program for the first time in 1998 with W6YYY.
Now the final chapter of my callsign journey seems to have been completed with W6TA in 2002.
So, as of 2013, this currently makes 55 years of Amateur Radio, continuously, and proudly still counting.
My QTH is located near the top of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, (very close to where W6AM operated) overlooking the City of Los Angeles, as well as the Beautiful Pacific Ocean. Being about 1,400 feet above sea level, gives me excellent take-off angles in most directions.
The K6RH (Rolling Hills Radio Club) repeater is also located at the QTH, which offers excellent coverage on 440 MHz, in the Los Angeles Basin. This system is open, and is encouraged to be used by all interested amateurs, in the Los Angeles area. Please check www.k6rh.org for additional information.
In conclusion, I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to look me up. I appreciate each and every QSO, and I look forward to contacting you once again in the near future.

Best 73 es GUD DX,
PS: Also, please check the link at http://k9ya.org/ which pays tribute to Bob, K9YA (SK), who we all miss each and every day. Bob was a wonderful person, a great amateur radio operator, and my best friend for over 50 years. I would also like to encourage everyone to sign up for the monthly magazine (K9YA Telegraph) that is Emailed to your computer absolutely FREE, each and every month. A very special thanks goes to Mike (N9BOR), who is the trustee of the "Robert F. Heytow Memorial Radio Club". We all miss you Bobby, and think of you often. R.I.P.!! Dit Dit
