First licensed in 1976 as WN4LEQ while in the Air Force stationed in the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan. Because of military duty I was not able to go to the nearest FCC office to up-grade to General (back then you had to test in front of an FCC Examiner to up-grade). I was allowed to have an Extra Class administer the test. I passed, and my Conditional (General) class license arrived in the mail about six weeks later. The "N" in my call sign was replaced with an "A". After I left the UP I moved to East Central Illinois. While there, I was able to travel to Chicago and test in front of the FCC Examiner and up-graded to Advanced. I up-graded to Extra in the early 90's. In June 2007 I received my Vanity Call (NT4F) Two years after receiving this call I helped my oldest son acquire my old call, which he holds today. All of my family are Hams. My wife, WD4HYW, My oldest son, WA4LEQ, his wife, W4LIZ, and my youngest son, KC4VAA, we are working on my newest daughter-in-law.

While stationed in Zweibrucken, Germany for three years, January 1987 through December 1990, I was assigned DA1OZ. I really enjoyed the world of DX back then. Many a day when I would get off work and fire up the rig on ten meters it would be a mad house working station after station on the band. Many fond memories of those days.

Station equipment at this time is an Icom IC-746 pro driving a Kenwood TL-922 amp. Kenwood TS-590SG a/t as a back-up and an Icom IC-706 MKIIG. For VHF and UHF I have a Kenwood TS-790A driving a 160 Watt amp on VHF. Antennas for HF are a Tennedyne T-8 Log-Periodic at 55 Ft., Dipoles for 80/40.  Alpha Delta DX-A slopper for 160/40 and 80 meters. For 30 meters I use a full wave delta loop. VHF and UHF antennas consist of a 13 element 13b2, 11 element for UHF and a 7 element for 220 MHz. The Horizontal antennas are 6 element for six meters at 53 ft. and Long John for two meter SSB above that and a tri-band vertical for 6, 2 and 440 on the top. I use Hazers on both towers.
