QSL image for W9HQ

I was first licensed as a Novice about 1975, having been very kindly elmered by Jim Stallman, W0VE.  But I never really did much with the Novice license--by the time I actually got some radio gear and an antenna, my code had deteriorated to the point where I couldn't get on the air.  So the license expired.  I don't even remember that call sign.  Then in the late '70s my interest in the hobby was rekindled and I rode with my dad to the FCC office in Kansas City, MO and took my 13 wpm code, General written, and Advanced written exam that day.  I was quite active for a few years, as N0CVR, but again other interests crowded out ham radio.

Today, professionally I work as an electrical engineer. I am married to the finest woman on the planet (sorry guys, I got her!) and I am the happy father of four children.  My oldest, Christopher, is licensed as KC9JTL.  On his account I am back into ham radio myself after a 20+ year hiatus and we have had a great time together, especially roving during VHF-UHFcontests.  What a great father/son hobby.  Dads, turn off the TV and do ham radio with your sons and daughters!

My wife is licensed as KC9MRX and now my oldest daughter is licensed as KC9VEM.

I host a modest blog on ham radio, Standing Waves, so feel free to check that out.
