Began my hamming career in 1976 and been having fun in the hobby ever since. Mainly cw.

Learned the code in 1945 as a Navy signalman and don't know why I didn't get involved in the hobby earlier.

At my last home, directly across the street was a ham, Mac W7APA who became my elmer. He was not only an avid DXer but had been in radio most of his life, starting in 1919 when he joined the Coast Guard as a radio op. Retiring in 1946 he became a merchant marine op until he retired in 1965. When he found out I was a Navy signalman, we would sit on our porches and send code via flashlight and he got a big kick out of that. During his years in the Coast Guard he was required to send messages by light as well. I was in the process of building my home and told him when I finished the job, I would then look into becoming a ham. Took 5 years to complete and when I got my ham license, WN7FFF he was more excited than I was. He became a silent key about 5 years later. Thanks Mac for all the years of enjoyment ham radio has given me.
