Choose the QSL(top right) you prefer to receive for our QSO! (K5HM@ARRL.net)

Born in NYC, I received my Novice license in 1954 and General in 1955, as K2KMA. I was active on 80,40 and 20 meters throughout high school and college.The photo at right shows me at about age 16 in my NY QTH, Circa 1957. The QSL below is my original card from 1955. Apparently this card has gained some notoriety. Check out my French colleague F6BLK: http://www.f6blk.net/main_fr.php?page=126 and N5UP http://eqsl.cc/qslcard/PhotoViewer.cfm?Subdirectory=QSL%20Collection%20N5UP

I graduated from New York University, majored in electrical engineering and was a member of the NYU Radio Club, W2DSC.

After graduation, work and family, I let my license lapse and went on to building my career. Today, I live in Houston, Texas with my wife and three cats.

In 2009, I renewed my interest in ham radio. and received my Extra Class license in May. I am a Volunteer Examiner, member of the Texas DX Society and Brazos Valley Amateur Radio Club in Houston.  I  received the vanity call sign, K5HM in March 2012.

In December 2012, I organized the Doomsday Special Event with call sign N0D (Now Zero Days). N0D was on the air from December 15th - 22nd, 2012 making more than 2500 QSO's on all modes (SSB,CW, PSK31) and sent more than 1300 QSL cards.

I am active on HF and two meters. As I live in an antenna restricted area, experimenting with homebrew antennas is an area of interest. I also like contesting and DX. I'm interested in digital modes. Someday, I promise that I will get back to CW.

I like to design my own QSL's using my personal photos. At left is my original QSL as AE5NO. That QSL run is exhausted and my latest QSL design is shown in the top right of the QRZ page. This photo is a giant Live Oak tree, taken at sunset on a country road near Brenham, Texas. What we flatlanders call the Texas Hill Country.

The Rodeo QSL is a photo I took at a small country rodeo in 2004. I liked this card so much I couldn't decide to let it go, so I am still using it. When you contact me, and you view my QRZ page, please specify which card you want to receive

Here I am some fifty years later. The zombie-like stare comes from the fact that it is 6:30 AM and I have not had any coffee!

In July 2014, I had the privilege to attend the ARRL Centennial in Hartford Ct with some friends.  I had a chance to catch up with "The Old Man" himself.  If you missed it, too bad. Not likely you'll be around for the bicentennial. 

We paid a visit to ARRL HQ and to W1AW. It is definitely a "must see" sometime in your ham career. Every member of the HQ staff was great, full of information.  I especially enjoyed meeting the lab staff, who probably don't get to visit with members much. 

I'm also a Lifetime Committeeman at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. My other interests are photography and travel. You can view some of my photos at http://www.photobyron.com
