Ham Member Lookups: 9973


First licensed in 1969 as a Novice, WN0YWI.  My station was an Ameco AC-1 tube 15 watt transmitter kit with a Hallicrafters SX-140 receiver + 40 meter dipole at 10 feet. The sun spot cycle was at a high and I spent many nights way into the early morning hours working CW (SK) with only the glow of the tubes to light the room. I was defnitely hooked.

I upgraded to General and Advanced Class licenses, WA0YWI and then Extra Class (20 WPM) in April, 1974. The challenge of taking all the tests at the FCC office in St. Paul, Minn. was a bit intimidating, but always a thrill. My call sign changed to K0KW in 1976 when the opportunity was presented for Extra Class licenses to apply for a 1x2. A special recognition to my elmer W0CYY, Francis "Bud" Weatherford (SK), for sparking an interest in ham radio during my early teens which helped decide my career choice of electronics/computers.  Currently retired after 40+ years with Honeywell/Intermec/Norand in the mobile computing industry.
