Morse code always interested me and I learned it while in the seventh grade. Never did anything with it until I met a friend in school with the same interest. We studied together and became licensed Novices in 1969. My call was WN8CQU. It wasn’t long after that I upgraded and became WB8CQU and then W8CQU in February of 2010 only because it was easier to send and faster to say phonetically while still keeping my identity.

I have been active on and off over the years on HF, VHF and UHF. I own a Drake TR7 that I have used exclusively for almost 30 years, a Heath SB-200 amp used with it occasionally, a Drake R-4A/T-4X and a Heath HW-101. I operate mostly CW but can do SSB and the digital modes. I’m also active on 2-meters. At the Dayton Hamvention 2011,I purchased a Flex 3000 as a retirement gift to myself. I officially retired from Ohio Edison (a First Energy Co.) where I worked as a Relay Tester for over 33 years. The Flex is a joy to use and I’m having a lot of fun with it on both CW and SSB. Hope to work you on the bands.

73 for now, Paul W8CQU.
