I was born in 1946 and was first licensed as a novice in 1963 as WN8FSB. I was a member of my high school radio club whose call sign was W8BAQ. After high school, I enlisted in the Air Force and worked as an air traffic control radar repair technician for 12 years. In 1982 I jumped from electronics and started a career as an industrial electrical field service engineer. In 1983 I upgraded to general and was issued the call sign N8EVW.
I was surfing the FCC site in 2004 and discovered that my high school radio club call sign was available as a vanity call. I applied for and received W8BAQ.
I have served as president and vice president of the Lancaster & Fairfield County Amateur Radio Club in Lancaster, Ohio.
I am an active DX’er and spend most of my time on SSB and CW.
My station consists of an Icom 706, a homebrew tilt over mast, a homebrew 6 band hex-beam and a G5RV dipole antenna.
The Logan Ohio High School radio club call was W8BAQ.
This was our club patch
I retired in 2008 and I’m having a blast operating my station and meeting new amateurs world wide!
