Sadly, our father, Jack, KG7X (ex-W7IVB) passed away in 2011.
All of us in the family owe him greatly for many things, but importantly here, we owe him for his work in teaching all of us the necessary prerequisites for becoming Amateur Radio Operators.

Robert (my son) studied hard and upgraded to Amateur Extra Class License and requested and was granted Dad's call sign, so Robert is now KG7X (ex-KB7JEC).

In 2015 2 of my life-long Navy friends, along with my son, KG7X, and a long time [nearly as long] friend from CADXA, Lee, KY7M, mounted a Field Day Operation up on Mt. Lemon in a wilderness area, just North of the Tucson Metropolitan Area, and used the Call Sign, KG7X. We were honored to contact many, many stations on SSB & CW on several bands. We were also honored to be able to contact W8QQQ, the call sign of the Shiawasse Amateur Radio Club, (one which my father was a charter member), as well as W8MSU, the Michigan State University Amateur Radio Club in Lansing, a station which we have had  many contacts in Field Day over the years, and with which one of my best friends as a Novice, is also associated [Boyd, WA8FHI]. 

The Picture above is (probably not at our best, but ...hey! it's field day ...  it's Arizona and ... it's  June ... and it's HOT! [even at the higher elevations on the mountain]) ... of myself and 2 Navy friends from Pearl Harbor, [KH6SP], Terry, W7RNF [with the beard], and Les, W5LE [best lookin' in the group], and myself.

Thanks to all who contacted us.

I also want to mention that my wife, Sue and my daughter, Wendy both tested and received their Technican class licenses. Sue, KG7SIZ and Wendy KG7SJC. Congrats!
