After years of short-wave listening and QSL collecting (as WDX2RPJ, courtesy of Popular Electronics) with a Heathkit GR-91 (had about 1/4" of bandspread on any particular band), was first licensed in 1971 at age 15 as WN2AOG using a Globe Scout Deluxe (remember crystals?) and a Knight Kit Star Roamer along with an 80/40 dipole and one of the infamous 15m rotatable dipoles (arm-strong rotor!),fabricated from the ARRL Handbook plan using 2x2's and galvanized water pipe - that sucker must have weighed 20 pounds!

Thought I was in heaven graduating to a Tempo One (Yaesu FT200) transceiver upon upgrading to General in 1972.

Over the years settled on Kenwood as "brand of choice", owning virtually every one of their "top" HF rigs from the original TS520 to a TS950SDX before getting the Yaesu bug again and going through various FT1000-FT2000-FT5000 setups.

Active DXer - DXCC Honor Roll (current 354/339; #1 Honor Roll 1994; 5BDXCC 1993) and have also always been an avid contester.
