I was first licensed in 1955 with the call KN9ANJ. As was required in those days, I upgraded to General in 1956 becoming K9ANJ. I was very active in amateur radio through my college days at University of Wisconsin. A few of the hams I met there at the radio club (W9YT) have had very active radio careers (K9IER, W8ERD - a protege of W8JK, K3ZO, K6NA, and N6ZZ (sk)). After graduating with a PhD in Physics in 1969, I moved to Texas and, as was required then, became W5SNH as well as upgrading to Advanced. During the next 20+ years I was only occasionally active but did not allow my license to lapse. Around 1990 I again became fairly active. I upgraded to Extra in 1995 and acquired my present call K5LJ when the vanity program opened.

I am an active DXer using CW, SSB, and digital with 338(mixed) and 333(CW) entities confirmed. I have DXCC on all bands 160M through 10M almost exclusively obtained running low power. My present station consists of a FT-2000D (acquired in 2008) and a FTdx 3000. The antennas are a modified W8JK beam for 20-10M up 16M, an 80m inverted V with the center at 15M (fed with 300Ωladder line), and a 16M center loaded vertical for 160M (also works on 40M). I recently built a small solid-state linear amplifier rated for 300w so I can now try to work the really rare DX with somewhat more than low power (I guess in old age my patience is wearing thin)!

I QSL via LoTW, Direct, & Buro

See you on the bands!
