Thanks for looking at my QRZ page.  I was first licensed in 1963 as WN4VGG when I was 13 years old.  I quickly upgraded to general class as WA4VGG.  I was very active on HF bands and enjoyed DXing.  I had a Johnson Adventurer/Hallicrafters SX-101 with dipole, then upgraded to a Heathkit Marauder/RME6900 and two element W2AU cubical quad, then went to a Swan 350.  After starting college in 1968, I quickly got busy with studies, girls, and beer.  By 1973 or so I had become very inactive due to career and family responsibilities and stayed that way for decades.  After I had been retired a couple of years and was probably in my wife's way too much, she suggested I get back into radio about two years ago.  I had to get re-licensed which I quickly did and here I am back on the air!  We have been married almost 42 years, have five grandchildren closeby along with our adult sons and their fantastic wives.  We are active in our church and love to travel.  I play golf weekly when the weather is nice.  Yes some things have changed about ham radio a lot over the decades, and some things have stayed the same.  I am blessed to have several good ham friends in the area and we get together most Fridays for fellowship, and have a DX club here in Louisville.   I am HOA restricted so I only can have an off center fed dipole and end fed longwire as antennas, but they actually work quite well.  If I can hear them I can work them!  I hope to meet you on the air!  

73, Joe N4ZOO
