         I got my novice ham ticket in 1967 at the age of 12, in Wichita, Kansas.  My father and mother were both very involved in a ham radio club and my dad was active as a member of the local civil defense. My family moved to Woodland Park, Colorado in 1968 and with my father's help I built a homebrew crystal controlled 30 watt transmitter and put up a 40 meter dipole and began to enjoy working CW from our 9000’ elevation QTH.  After my novice days I got away from ham radio until the 1980’s when I studied up and got my General license, the code came back pretty fast and I began to discover the new world of 2 meter repeaters and solid state (no tune?) rigs.  My dad and Elmer became a silent key un-expectantly in 2001 and I took his call sign W0JAW to honor him. With a busy family life and a small business and a church I was pioneering, I was only semi active at best and not until recently have I become active again and am enjoying SSB on 20, 40 and 80 meters.  I’ve been active with APRS for years and host an I-gate for northwest Arvada, Colorado.  My main antenna is a ZS6BKW (optimized G5RV)  up around 40 feet or so and in my station I have my dad’s Yaesu ft-990 and my new Yaesu FTDx 3000D.  Other pastimes I enjoy is mountaineering (love mountain topping and making QSO’s on summits.) and backpacking and astronomy and golf.
