I got my novice license in June of 1954, while in the eighth grade in Sherburne, NY. My call was KN2IQH. My first rig was a Hallicrafters S-38B and an HT-17.  After my junior year in high school, I had earned enough money to buy a National NC-88. It was a big move up. I upgraded as time went on and now hold my Extra license.

After high school I served in the US Navy for a tour. They sent me to San Diego, CA for radio school. Then I went to Japan for the remainer of my tour. I operated as KA2KS while overseas, from near Yokohama. It was fun to be DX.

After returning to NY, I went to a two-year college, then went into the family printing business for about 15 years. We sold out in 1977 and it gave me a chance to move back to San Diego, where I became the print shop supervisor for the high school district. I retired in 2000. In 1977 I received the call W6TUR.

As well as doing a lot of operating, I like the older tube gear. I have about 20 receivers, mostly Hallicrafters, and several novice type transmitters. It's fun to put them on the air and work others who used the equipment in the fifties.

I have three sons, two are hams, KA6UFK and KA6UTE. Neither are active right now. Hopefully some day they will return to the hobby.

As you can see from the photo, I like American History. I enjoy reading about the Presidents, especially Harry Truman. I  also like to read about World War II.

I'm on the air every day!

73, Ron W6TUR
