I was first licensed in 1954 as WN0TLX, then upgraded to conditional class (General Class by mail) as soon as my code speed increased to 13 wpm. Incentive licensing motivated me to get the Extra in the late 60s.

I just recently returned to the airwaves in 2012, after a log hiatus from Ham Radio in1994 when divorce forced me into apartment living. I lived in Mpls for 47 yrs after graduating from ISU in EE. Recently, moved back to Ames, IA, and my almamater ISU in March 2012. Our single family home has given me the opportunity to return to the hobby I love.

My station is as follows:

STUDIO A

-ELECRAFT K3S + P3; Timewave DSP-599; Green Heron RT-21; Heil PR-781; Bose headphones

When I'm not chasing DX, I'm chasing tennis balls.
