Originally from the Florida panhandle where my father worked for Graham Air Base. First exposed to radio when I touched the bare tuning knob of my fathers shortwave receiver while barefoot standing on bare ground. After coming too I knew I was permanently hooked on radio.

We moved to North Alabama in the early 1960's where the newest technology craze was the telephone (really). Living in the woods and studying by candlelight (just kidding) I managed to study for my novice ticket but never found anyone to give the exam. I continued to listen to shortwave radio and my dad and I built a Knight Kit Star Roamer which I still have to this day. My dad never was a ham but he loved radio and was my mentor in electronics, sure do miss him.

I learned to play the guitar at 15 and played professionally and semipro the next 31 years, another attribute I can credit my dad. After High School I went to college with a major in broadcasting. During my last year a couple of college friends got their ticket and I decided to try for mine. In 1977 I became WA4RLR with an advanced ticket until 1982 when I changed my call to KE4NU.

I went back to college and got a degree in Medical Technology as jobs were far and few between around Jasper, Alabama. I worked as a dialysis machine tech for 11 years. In 2001 after losing joint custody of my son and expecting my job to be eliminated I moved to the wilds of the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana in September of 2001. I upgraded to extra in March 07. I'm active on most bands and the local ham club and have a great life and career now. Here is the lowdown on my present station: Yaesu FTDX-1200, Icom 746PRO, Yaesu 857D, Collins 30L1, Skywalker 600, homebrew 20-10 meter hexbeam, 160 fullwave horizonal loop. Mostly operate CW, and restore old receivers (have a room full now) in my spare time. Also a practioner of QiGong and Tai Chi for over 2 years now. I have been employed by GSK Biologicals since 2006. Maybe I can retire someday!! 73 Alan
