Welcome, from K5WLW. I was first licensed in 1976 as a Novice with the call WN5SQZ, thanks to my good friend, Frank Perez, K5IBV of Galveston, Texas. I upgraded to WB5SQZ through the years with a Technician, General, Advanced and finally obtained my Extra in 1987, after years of 20 wpm CW encouragement from another good friend, Alan Williams, WA5EBP. In 2000, I changed to the Vanity call of K5WLW. I retired January 2017, so now I have a lot more time to devote to this great hobby.
