Originaly licensed in 1967 as WN7GYG, then again in 1973 as WN7YCO. Now as KA7KGQ since 1981. First station as WN7GYG was a Conar Receiver/Transmitter which I built from a kit that cost $65.00 new. I made several CW contacts using this station putting out 25 watts with a single tube and a hand full of crystals. My second station costing only $100.00 used, was a Hallicrafters SX111 receiver and a very heavy(100lbs.) Heathkit DX100B transmitter. I now had VFO tuning on the transmitter, and could talk all over the place using CW.

Then in 1981 I got the "bug" again, and got my Novice, Tech, General and Advanced licenses all in one year. Lots of hard studying, and CW practice. I eventualy took the Extra written exam and passed only missing two questions. But, as I was teaching a local novice class and working at a job, I didn't finish the job with the code, I could only do about 18 WPM. As KA7KGQ, I started out with a Swan 350, then a Kenwood TS-520, a Kenwood TS-120 and lots of Heathkit HW12's and 12A's and a Heathkit HW-8 QRP rig, worked a lot of QRP CW. I now have a Kenwood TS-530S, a Kenwood TS-130S and a complete Kenwood TS-830S station, and hang out on 3860 rag-chewing, and on 20 meters chasing DX... I work the CQ DX WW every year, as a single op, single transmitter I also have a lot of fun using a MFJ-9015 for 15 Meter QRP CW, a MFJ-9040 for 40 Meter QRP CW and a MFJ-9420 for 20 Meter QRP SSB.
