I developed my interest in radio from being a SWL.

I had heard of ham radio but did not know much about it. A friend of my Dad was a ham, W0CJH (SK) , and he explained to me what it was all about and let me make a few contacts using his station. My high school electronics teacher was also a ham, W0UAO (SK) ,and he gave me guidance and helped me get my ticket at age 14. I was first licensed in 1972 as WN0IBR. My first rig was a Heathkit HW-16 that I built. A year later, I made the trip from Hannibal, MO. to the Kansas City FCC Field Office and passed my General exam, and was issued WB0IBR.

I joined the Air Force in 1976 (PMEL Calibration Tech) and was not active on ham radio during my six year enlistment, but have always kept my license current. I was stationed at Dyess AFB in Abilene,TX and Andersen AFB, Guam, both SAC B-52 bases. After moving back to Texas in 1982 I requested a 5-land call and received N5HWJ. In 1989 I passed the Advanced class test and received my current call, KG5WR. I passed the Amateur Extra exam on November 13th, 2014.

My favorite modes are JT65, PSK31, Olivia, CW and working the SO-50 satellite using a dual-band handheld and Arrow II antenna.

I am currently using an Icom IC-756 Pro II running 100 watts into a 4BTV ground mounted vertical with the 30 meter addon.

I qsl via eQSL and LOTW.
