First licensed in 1960 as WA4OTO, when I upgraded to Advanced I was assigned the call KC4MJ. In 1986 I upgraded to Extra and when vanity licensing became available I became N4FN (my initials reversed) My Elmer was an old friend Irwin Kane WA2VGM (now a silent key). I have been active in the Atlanta Ham community for many years having served as President of the QCWA, Atlanta Radio Club (twice), the Southeastern DX Club as well as other officers in those clubs. In 2014 I proudly served as President of the North Fulton ARL, an ARRL Special Services Club.  I served as the coordinator of ARRL VEC testing at GA Tech for several years. As an active DXer I have 345 entities/countries confirmed. I am still interested in chasing DX but currently my main interest is in PSK/RTTY. Of all the ham radio awards I have and there are a bunch, I am proudest of the Arabian Knights Award (number 568 in the world) and the Royal Jordanian Silver Award (number 191 in the world) from the Arabian Amateur Radio League and issued and personally signed by King Hussein of Jordan JY1, I also have The Commonwealth DX Award (number 332 in the world) issued by the Radio Society of Great Britain. I also hold the British Class A call sign G0NBJ (my original call was G5DKW) having taken the British RAE years ago. I have also operated from 13 DXCC countries. I am also a member of the DXCC Honor Roll. Like many hams I took a hiatus from ham radio for about 10 years, missed it and came back to our great hobby. The station at home is a Yaesu FTdx5000 and the FLEX Maestro and the FLEX 6400, a great combination. For HF I utilize a SteppIR Big IR and a K4KIO Hex Beam antenna.  At a recent Dayton pilgrimage I added a Palstar HF-Auto tuner. When a bit of extra grunt is needed I use an Alpha 99 amp. As you can probably tell I hold the Bald Eagle in high esteem (probably because I am an Eagle Scout). The picture showing the shack console was designed and built by Scott and Paul Kelley W4KLY (www.kelleycustomwood.com). The photo of "EVERS" our 17 pound "attack-lick" dog is actually not a good description. She is really a little kid in a dog suit, no one told her she was a dog. EVERS knows she is in charge of the house according to my wife Nancy (also my best friend). As of January 2017 I have 57 years in this great hobby, and to steal a qoute my good friend Bob Allphin K4UEE "It is still magic".  Recently I added a classic radio station consisting of a Hammarlund HQ-170AC, HQ-145AC matching S-200 speaker and the Hammarlund HX-50 transmitter along with the classic Astatic D-104 microphone and vintage J-38 key. I first saw the 170A in the 60's but could not afford it. I said some day I will own one, and now I do.
