I was first licensed in 1962 as KN1WYS. My first rig was a 28VDC, ARC-3 on 2M. My first FM rig was one of Fred Link's commercial base stations which had been retired from the fire service. Later my FM rigs were a GE Voice Commander "handheld" and a Motorola P23 "handheld". My first FM mobiles were GE twin coffins, followed by a Motorola T43GGV and then a GE TPL "toilet paper line" which was a very appropriate name. It seems like the TPL transistor/tube hybrid was always in need of repair, but I learned a lot about commercial LMR from those early FM radios. My previous callsigns were K1WYS, W9KHZ, W4APR, WB0AWG and W0OZL. Six meters has always been my favorite band where I first used a Clegg 99'er which I upgraded to a Swan 250 when the 250 first came out. That 250 provided many operators with their first six meter contact from Montana. It was fun always operating in a six meter pile up. Around 1978 I switched to transverters. Today I mainly operate on 50 thru 1296 Mhz. Before I retired most of my operating was during VHF/UHF contests when I usually operated those bands as a Rover. Thus far I have rovered in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Iowa, Wyoming and Colorado. Today most of my operating is on digital modes. Most mornings I can be found on 6 and 2 meters digital. My station today is a modest one running no more than 160 watts with relatively small antennas no more than 35 feet high. I've begun trying out SDR with an Anan 10E. My QTH is in a NW Colorado valley West of Steamboat Springs at an elevation of 6200 feet. Winters can be very cold here. The coldest temperature ever recorded in Colorado, minus 62F,  was about 35 miles west of here. 73 and good DX especially on six meters.
