Formerly: KC5HWJ

A native Texan, I was born and grew up in Dallas  (Oak Cliff). I graduated from High School in 1979 in McKinney (a suburb in far Northern Dallas) where I met my wife Rene' KC5SKN. I then attended Collin College and Texas A&M - Commerce where I earned my MBA.

I first became interested in the hobby as a young boy via my uncle WA5QXD (now K5KJ) and to a lesser degree his friends such as WA5WWH (now K5XG).  Rode shotgun with K5KJ while SKYWARN spotting and caught that bug from him too.  I was first licensed in 1994 and the hobby has been one of my primary interests since and has been a very pleasurable experience for me.

N5XG (K5BDX) was very kind and helpful to this new ham.  I bought my first HF rig from him --- a IC - 737A.  I also was able to work him while he was in Aruba as P40CW.  Man was I proud and excited when I received the QSL card.

First licensed as KC5HWJ (1994) as a TECH and gradually moved up the ranks to EXTRA with my current call of K5BL.
