I took the Novice test 2 weeks before my 15th birthday in March of 1968 in the St. Louis MO area and received WN0USA in early May. I upgraded to General (WA0USA) in November of the same year only to fall victim to Incentive licensing. I operated as ZF1KV in late March of 1969. Somebody bootlegged that call through April. I upgraded to Advanced in 1971 and finally to Extra in 1980. I moved from Columbia MO to South Florida , land of the HOA, in 1984. I operate mostly CW and enjoy operating mobile CW including the Florida QSO Party. I am a DX'er at heart and enjoy building and using stealth wire antennas as a result of living in an HOA. I also hold the Bahamian call C6AKV. I am a bit of a Luddite when it comes to QSL 'ing. I like paper cards and am only now getting set up on eQSL and LOTW. I keep envelopes at the bureau and usually do outgoing batches every 6 months or so. I respond immediately to direct cards. I also hold F.C.C. 2nd Radiotelegraph, GROL and GMDSS Operator/Maintainer commercial licenses with Ship's Radar Endorsement. Be Radioactive. The picture is me copying the 2006 Field Day Bulletin with pencil and paper. I am a member of the ARRL, CW Ops #645, SKCC # 7227 and Florida Contest Group.
