My first Amateur Radio license was issued in 1974 to WB4WSB.  My Wife, Dad, and Brother also took the class with me, and all were licensed at that time, thanks to W4DON for the great classes.  Since then my Dad is a silent key, my brother's license expired, and my wife has her Amateur Extra Class call sign WA4WSB.

Thanks to my friends W4CZU, K4DY, K4DJ and KC4G for help and encouragement.

In 1978 I passed my 20wpm Extra Exam, and  received the callsign AB4Z and have held it ever since, although I was inactive for awhile.  In summer of 2014 I realized what I had been missing, so began the task of replacing all my gear.  I am now using an ICOM 7300  into a Cushcraft A3S beam and a Zero-Five 43 ft. ground plane.   For 2 meters I have a Yaesu FT 1900R.  An Ameritron 811H is occasionally used.  An ICOM 746-Pro is used as a back up rig in the downstairs bedroom.  Also, an Icom 706 MK II is used mobile.

A Palstar AT2K manual tuner is used occasionaly to tweek up the swr when needed.

I enjoy working CW, SSB and Digital Modes, just recently becoming active on JT-65. 

I am enjoying being back in the hobby and hope to make many DX contacts over the coming months, having 326 DXCC confirmed.  73 to all.

Ron, AB4Z
