Born in the UK came to USA in 1963 and lived mostly at the current address. First license as WN6JHV and when I upgraded to General the "N" changed to an "A" and I kept this call till 1972. My xyl suggested I get my initials in my call. The current issue for Extra class licensee at that time was N6 x2 but I heard the FCC were going to issue a new group of prefixes (AA calls) so requested and was granted my current call. Getting on HF with this call for the first time was bedlam, every one and their brother thought I was rare DX station. After this experience I think I prefer the current status of chasing DX. Being ex "G" but not licensed there but held a reciprocal G5 Call I became interested in working stations from this part of the world. I have used and built Quad antennas for many years and using this type of HF antenna has netted many dx contacts. I like CW but can be found mostly on phone.

I worked for the same company for my whole US working career and ending up as General Manager.

I was a member of the RN (Royal Navy) and served in submarines during the fifties. For those who know about British subs I was crewed on several "T" class boats. Should you have a question about subs it's possible I could answer it. These subs were diesel electric boats, WWII vintage.

I'm interested in music too and play clarinet at our local community college band. I became interested in playing after I retired so learning music from scratch was a challenge as well as teaching myself the art of blowing and fingering this wonderful sounding instrument was difficult. That was six years ago (2006) but that is behind me so getting more proficient is my goal now. In addition I am trying to learn Spanish. This is an interesting language and I'm getting better so if you speak Spanish try it out on me and be sure to correct me so that I can learn from you. Thanks,
