EX. WA3AXV

I was first licensed as WA3AXV in 1964. Licensed with the then relatively new Technician class license (Tech Class was started in 1951), my test was administered by W3KKN (SK), Ernie Kenas, in Willow Grove, PA. WA3AXV joined the Mt. Airy VHF Radio Club (Pack Rats) in 1970. Upgraded to Advanced class in 1978. This time the test was administered by the legendary Joe Welch, W3UQV (SK) of the FCC office in Philadelphia, PA. The 'vanity' call W3RJW (my initials) was obtained in 1997. I retired in 2008 after 32 years as a civilian Electrical Engineer (Drexel '67) with the U.S. Navy (NADC) and 10 years with a local TV Production RF company (Total RF, now CP Communications). I enjoy rag chewing, chasing DX and building antennas. Churchville is a small area of Northampton Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania located about 20 miles north of Philadelphia, PA. What used to be a mostly rural area covered with farmland is now a virtual "sea of vinyl" (i.e. houses covered with plastic siding) !! Good luck and good DX.

My Other Hobbies include Classic Cars, Photography, Woodworking and Salt Water Fishing

Churchville Train Station

Churchville had commuter train service until February 1983. Service was "temporarily" suspended due to a lack of ridership along the line.
The train station has since been restored and is now a private residence.

Former Fishing Pier - Ocean City, NJ

This picture was taken by W3RJW (35mm Kodachrome Slide) in the early 80's, years after the pier had been abandoned.
Subsequent storms over the years gradually destroyed the pier and in November 2012 Hurricane Sandy took care of what was left.
