I was first licensed in 1962 at the age of 17 with the Novice call WN5DDC. Later that year I upgraded to General class at which time my call became WA5DDC.

In 1969 I upgraded to Advanced class and in 1979 to Extra class. With the upgrade to Extra, I had the opportunity to change call signs to an FCC-assigned one from the 2 x 1 group and received the call KD5R.

I've always run 100 Watts or less and have only used a couple of ground-mounted verticals and a few low dipoles for antennas over the years.

DXing has always been my primary interest but due to equipment limitations, "new ones" are now few and far between. 

UPDATE - February 2017: After 55 years, I finally started using a small amplifier (Ameritron ALS-600).  It does seem to make a difference on SSB and CW but not so much on RTTY where the power has to be reduced.
