When I entered high school I immediately joined the Amateur radio club, call sign WA3DJQ. I was administered my Novice license test by the school's amateur radio club sponsor Mr. Ed Kirschner, WA3HXQ, in late 1970. I received my novice ticket in early 1971 and was WN3QGA. My first rig was the club's Heathkit SB-301 receiver and a Heathkit DX-20 transmitter and operating from the school's club station. I upgraded to general class prior to graduating from high school with the call sign WA3QGA. Ham radio has been an important part of my life and career. Spent many years on HF and enjoyed collecting QSL cards. I got away from HF operation but always at least had a two meter FM rig in my vehicle. Recently rekindled my interest in HF operation and have a Elekraft KX3. Made many friends via ham radio over the years and I am excited about getting active again on HF.
