First licensed in 1970 as WN0BGH while stationed at Mather AFB in California before leaving for a 13 month tour of duty in Kwangju, Korea.  Received my Conditional (General) license the week before I left Korea in 1971. Upgraded to Advanced in Boston FCC office in 1977 and upgraded to Extra in 1993.  Retired from the USAF (1958-1980) as a MSGT.  In 1982 I returned to college and finished my BS Degree in Business Management/Finance in 1986 and worked as an Auditor in the Finance Dept of the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission until I retired in June of 1999.

My station:  ICOM 7600, ICOM 756PRO, ICOM 706MKIIG (3).  ACOM 1000 amplifier. Antennas: Mosley PRO 67B (10-40m) on 70' Rohn 25G tower, HyGain HyTower vertical  (10-160m),  Inverted "V" for 160m, Cushcraft A50-5S (6m) @ 75', and Diamond X-50A 2m-70cm vertical at 80'.  Separate 40' tower for Diamond X-50A 144/440 vertical,  Separate Cushcraft 11 ele horizontal beams for 144 & 440 mhz.  I  operate HF/VHF mobile with a ICOM 706MKIIG and a Outbacker Perth antenna for HF and a Larson Dual band antenna for 2m/70cm.  I have operated mobile from every US State except Alaska and many coutries of Europe we have visited.  I operated mobile from many provinces of Canada during my annual visits to NB/NS/PEI.

I am an avid DX'er.  I have worked all DXCC entities (339/355 current/deleted).  I have 9BDXCC/9BWAS/9BWAC/5BWAZ. VUCC, and DARC Awards of WAE-TOP Fone #37 and Mixed #22.  My DXCC Challenge stands at 2599 as of 23 June 2017.

Picture below was taken in February 1971 at my office in Kwangju, Korea, after I returned from a trip to Japan where I visited the Yaesu manufacturing facility outside of Tokyo and purchased the equipment.  It was my first station but I could not transmit with it in Korea because I held only a Novice license until a week before I left for my next duty station at Pease AFB, NH.  In my spare time in Korea I operated the Base Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS) station and made hundreds of phone patches for the troops I was stationed with.
