I go by "Gene" on the air.

Hello my friend, nice to have a QSO with you! February 21, 2018 marks my 40th Anniversary of being a licensed Amateur Radio Operator. I took my Novice Test on my 15th Birthday, at Joe Pollock, K4ULW'S house in Valley Station, KY. It has been a very enjoyable and challenging hobby, but that's what makes it so much fun. 73




During the ARRL Centennial Celebration, I hope Kentucky worked you the second week of W1AW/4, July 30 to August 5, 2014. That week 1,933 QSOs CW and RTTY were made from this station. It was quite an operating experience, as I had never been on that end of a pileup! It was quite a thrill. Thanks to ARRL for the opportunity to give back to Amateur Radio, and Happy 100th Birthday ARRL!

The working conditions are an Elecraft K3 & K2/100  & K1 20/40m, and Elecraft KPA500 amp. The HF antennas are a Mosley TA-63N and an HF9V ground mtd. vertical. I own 6 straight keys and two Iambic paddles, a Vibroplex and Bencher (from 1978, my first paddle). Paducah has been my home since 1986. My review of the TA-63N is on EHAM Reviews.  http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/7583   Mosley info:  http://www.mosley-electronics.com/pages/amateur/ta63n.htm 

I received a transplant after living with PSC for over 11 years. PSC is a rare auto-immune liver disease that causes chirrosis, and eventually death. I am thankful to God, my Donor family, my Surgeons, and my precious wife.  www.organdonor.gov  http://www.pscpartners.org

by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA (1928)
The Radio Amateur is:
CONSIDERATE..... never knowingly operating in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.
LOYAL..... offering loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local clubs and the American Radio Relay League, through which Amateur Radio in the United States is represented nationally and internationally.
PROGRESSIVE..... with knowledge abreast of science, a well built and efficient station, and operation beyond reproach.
FRIENDLY..... with slow and patient operation when requested, friendly advice and counsel to the beginner, kindly assistance, co-operation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur spirit.
BALANCED..... Radio is an advocation, never interfering with duties owed to family, job, school or community.
PATRIOTIC..... with station and skill always ready for service to country and community.
