First licensed in 1969 as WN1LKU, then WA1LKU within 2 years. In 1972 I went to college at Ohio State and got very active with the club there, W8LT. I got an "auxiliary" station license: WB8OSC which lasted a few years until the FCC discontinued that practice. In 1978 or thereabouts I got the call K1LT via the initial vanity call program.
During the era 1975 until 1992 I did the following stuff: operated Field Day and the ARRL 160 contest as W8LT; built linked repeater systems for the local ARES group for road rallies and bike tours; built one of the first microprocessor controller repeaters, WR8ANW, with WA8VNP; built a few packet radio nodes including part of a 19200 bps network to Dayton; and built a 9600 bps UHF packet repeater.
From 1994 until 2003 I was distracted by non-radio activies like working, raising children, changing wives, and so on.
In 2004 I moved to my present QTH and started contesting in earnest. At first I was only QRV on 160 but I started adding other bands after about 2007. I put up a 60 foot tower in 2010 and a 100 foot tower in 2016. Each of these has a Cushcraft X7 on top.
I have uploaded all of my logs since 2003 to LoTW. I try to respond to SASEs as soon as possible, although I have a stack of cards from 2003 and 2004 that remain unanswered (insert excuses here).
If you really want to know what I am doing now, look for my posts to the 3830 email reflector. Google "3830 archives" and look around.
