I was introduced to ham radio by a classmate in 1960 while in high school. When our family relocated to Wichita in 1961 I found that ham radio parts were available locally. I built a 75 watt CW transmitter from a 1959 ARRL handbook, bought a used Hallicrafters SX28 receiver, and put up a 40M folded dipole in the folks back yard. Got my novice ticket in October 1961 as WN0CLD. I entered the Navy in 1962 at 17 years of age and went off to see the world. Unfortunately, I never got my general ticket during that time. It wasn't until I met a ham at work that my interest in ham radio was rekindled. Thanks to him I got my general, advanced, and extra class ticket in 2002 as KC0MGZ. I later changed to my current call sign because of phonetics problems working weak signal DX.

My wife and I retired to our current address in 2008. We have two wonderful kids and two equally wonderful grandchildren.


P.S. Thanks Butch
