During the 2018 Grid Chase all QSO's will be uploaded to LoTW immediately!!!!!!

Hello my name is Bill, In the early 70's I received my first FCC license to operate CB radio;s, then in October of 1990 I became novice licensed as KA1WLI. Just after receiving this license in 1990, kids and family became a priority, at the time I was working in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as an Air Traffic Controller in Nashua, NH. I moved several times with the FAA and finally retired October 2014 from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) working as an Air Traffic Controller at the Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton International Airport (KABE). I receieved my vanity call sign K3ABE, (now the c/s makes sense right???) on 5/10/2016. I also passsed my general exam on 5/6/2016 and on 1/5/2018 I completed the Extra exam. I started talking on the airwaves, CB airwaves that is, back in the early 70's, dont remember what my license call sign was but I do remember I had one. I served in the United States Navy from 1977-1986 as an Air Traffic Controller, and then was hired ny the FAA in the same capacity as the Navy. In 1990 I received my first novice HAM Radio license, I quickly realized I love to do DX contests, however in 1994 I had to put HAM Radio on the back burner as family and work was more important. 

I am currently in the process of making my new shack and trying to figure out what radio and antennas I want to use, but I  know that DX'ing will play an important decision into whatever it is I do!!!! Finally decided to go with the Yaesu FTDX-1200 and a G5RV antenna, so far everything is up and running great. I will need to get the antenna up a little higher in the near future.

When I am not on the radio I ride my Harley Davidson Triglide, I ride her for about 15000 per year and really enjoy the open roads and air!!! Here is a picture of my chariot!!!
