Ham Member Lookups: 69312


I am working on my biography... Well it will be a short story for you all to enjoy and no, what you are reading below is not it.. Ha Ha!

Thanks to all my friends and family who have helped and have encouraged me to become a HAM. My poor Mom had to deal with all kinds of wires strung outside of our house and huge antenna masts with my experimental antennas on the house too! Ha Ha! I am sure the neighbors just loved it.... Of course they made fun of me, but at least I am not some..... Well, I had better stop there. I don't want to offend anyone.

Thanks to the orginal K3HTK - Henry "Hank" J. Maliszewski (My Great Uncle) who became a silent key on his Birthday, May 17th, 2006 at age 87. You will be missed by all your family and thank you for your service to our country in WWII. I am really disappointed we never were able to have that QSO on the air we talked about. Someday we will..... 73's and Semper Fidelis!

Also thank you to Don - WD8DSB for all the help and guidance you gave me early on in my Ham Radio operating experiences and teaching me the proper techniques and driving me to advance my license to get on HF and be a good CW operator.

Also thank you to Jordan - WJ2W for just being a good friend and partner in crime (Hi Hi) in our college days. It was cool having a college classmate you could talk Ham Radio with and of course get into trouble with too.... Long story there, but I will say more about that in my short story biography when I get it completed and posted on here.

Thank you to former KC4YDJ - Tim for donating your tower, help, and time to get me setup with something I could use! It has been many years since I have talked with Tim and I think he has gotten out of the hobby which is sad to know. He was kind enough to give me his 50 - 60 foot tower setup after needing to move. He also gave me antennas that I am still using today! It was a nice thing to do to help a young guy who was just getting started in life have some nice extras that I wouldn't have otherwise been able to afford.

Another good friend of mine who although is still licensed, has been off the air for quite some time. N9WCN - Andrew. He has been a great friend of mine for many years and we used to chat on the air darn near every night when we first got into the hobby. We were close enough to run simplex so no, we didn't tie up repeaters with our worthless conversations while playing games against each other over dial up modem. Ha Ha! Thank you Andrew for being a great friend and tower building buddy. He has been a part of all my tower projects.... Of course I am on the tower and he does the ground work, but that is okay. I would rather I get hurt than him anyway.....

There are so many others out there I have crossed paths with over the years who have contributed in some form or fashion and I appreciate everything anyone has done over the years to support or educate me on this wonderful hobby. To me it has been a dream come true to be a HAM and I will do anything and everything I can to pass on the good gestures that have been given to me over the years. That's the least I can do.... 73's
