 got a job at Bell Labatories in Whippany,NJ Aug 27, 1973 in the Construction Facilities Dept. This was a cool job

nothing like I ever had before. Inside when it was cold out and inside when it was hot out. Steady work good pay and

good benefits. Nothing like I had ever seen on outside  Construction jobs. We did alot of work for different Depts of all

kinds. I heard about this thing called Amateur Radio. Dick Wolff  K2ASM was instrumental in this process known as

my "Elmer". We studied Morse code and theory during my lunch breaks and finally had enough knowledge to pass

the Novice exam. Received my ticket in May of 1977 WA2OPG.  11 months later upgraded to General and a year or so

upgraded to Advance license. Started out with Heathkit of all varities went to hamfest to only drool at the new Solid

State Icom rigs. Experimented with a number of antennas and the Cubical Quad was the favorite. Now fast foward 36

years I retired May 1, 2009 after many years of a job that seemed like fun and not work all because I found Ham Radio

with the help of many friends around the "LABS"


After retiring we moved to Belton,SC in Anderson County on 10 acres and now is the time for some new Solid State radios, new beam antennas and finally a big tower.

K2AQM was granted to me 09/03/2016

The original call sign K2AQM belonged to Len Hendler and was a fantastic person. He was quiet and reserve I respected

him. So for quite sometime I had thought about changing my call sign so after many years after Len went SK I decided 

to put K2AQM back on the air. God Bless you Len until we meet again.




I will post pictures as we progress in this wonderful world of Ham Radio.


Thanks to all who helped me get here.
