e Service/Hobby at 20. I also obtained my 3rd, 2nd, and 1st phone radio operator licenses which have been dumbed down to the geI was licensed as WNØWYP March 12 1969, got it in the mail March 15 1969 and got on the air with a WRL Meteor SB175 transmitter, Heathkit HR-10B receiver, and a Hy-Gain 18AVQ vertical on 7195 when the VOA was not on. Vince Streck KØUYF, SK, gave me my novice test Dec 31st 1968. July 69 I went to Denver to take the General but only got the non conditional technician as I had 25 characters or better at 13wpm but not the required 65 and passed the general written and became WAØWYP. I came back in Sep 69 and passed the code so I knew I had the general. I studied for the advanced and passed it. My advanced came Oct 2nd and I got on the air with a Heathkit SB400 and the same receiver and antenna. Sometime later I bought a Drake 1A and that really made a big improvement in hearing those I worked. I later bought an SB200 amp and took down the broken 18AVQ and put up a tower, 3 el beam, and inverted vee for 80/40m. An SB101 and SB220 soon followed. 1973 I bought a new Drake C line. Jan 73 I passed my extra in Denver after 6 tries of 20wpm. Jan 77 I sent off for KØOJ, received it Feb 12, 77 which I still hold. Along the way other bands and modes came and I got into AM with a Johnson Viking II and used my R-4C until I found a Collins 75A-2 receiver so I didn't have to share the R-4C which started my love afair with Collins. Aug 1995 a 32V-3 found its way to me which you see both in the picture. They are still used on a daily basis on 3875 talking to my AM buddies around the area. In 2002 I traded some stuff to WØAVH Bill for an IC-706MKIIG which got me into 2 meter and .7 meter SSB. For years I have been on 2 and .7 meter FM with vertical beams atop the tower so Jim, KCØRBT, came over and turned them horizontal and put up a 4 el 6m beam as well. I am having a ball on 2m SSB and .7m SSB now. Dec 8 2010 I bought a TS2000X to enhance those modes. Recently I added preamps for 2 and .7 which really helps out the weak signals. I am a ragchewer by heart but do a smattering of DXing. My real DXing is now done on 2 and .7 SSB. Aug 1985 under the new VE testing system I gave my first VE session with the help of Debbie Glasscock NØFCP and others who I dom't remember. Deb was a whiz at the paperwork. I am still giving tests as a field stocker. I was a member of Army MARS from Aug 31 1970 till Oct 2012. I almost forgot to mention Joe White KØCNV, cruel nasty and visious, none of which he was but those were his phonetics, in Arvada CO, who was the first ham radio operator I met in 1964 due to my moms girlhood friend Leonard Malone in Nebraska who rented a room from Joe. Ham radio displaced Leonard as Joe needed the room for his shack and on one of our visits to see him, we went to Joe's home so I could meet him and see ham radio in action. Mom and Dad visited with Elise White, Joe's wife, with Leonard and Marge, Leonard's wife, while I was in the ham shack having a ball for an hour or two. I was 15 at that point but got in thneral radio operators license, but good for life. I am also a life member of the ARRL. Dec 21 2013 I received a Connect Systems CS700 HT  which has started my venture into MOTOTRBO thanks to some ham friends. Aug 27 2015 not much has changed. traded some Collins stuff for some TENTEC stuff, sold some but kept the Centurion amp and the 238 tuner.I came by an Alpha 76A which is great backup for the TENTEC. Got back on 160 thanks to Matt KDØEZS. I should mention that I go by OJ. Below is how to put up antennas on the tower thanks to KC0LFU , SK, owner of Rocky Mountain Electric.
