I came up with this vanity callsign because I'm a cartographer by training/profession, and I spend a lot of time with maps and systems that produce them.  I also like the fact that I'm using the old "KN....." callsign prefix that was given to novice licensees, because I really do feel like a novice when it comes to communicating on the air.   Even though I spent 4 years fixing radios for the Washington Air National Guard, I never had to talk on them so I have a hard time whenever I key the mic.

Received my General license in March of 2015 and have just now gotten onto the air with HF.  I've been working the local VHF repeaters and have found that there is only so much you can say to the same people, so it is refreshing to finally get onto HF and make contacts around the country.
