My name is Terry, and I became interested in radios in 1972 when my parents purchased a home in Augusta, Ga. The previous owner had left behind some vintage crystal radio sets. My dad helped me assemble the radios and I spent countless hours listening to them.

Later, a family friend, Henry (Hank) Townes, W4ALK (sk) introduced me to ham radio. On my first visit to his shack I was totally hooked. Henry had an impressive QTH with multiple contest stations. Below is a copy of his QSL card from the late 70's.  Although I was originally licensed as 'KD4AHN' in May 1991, I applied for and was granted vanity callsign W4ALK in Jan. 2012. My desire is to memorialize Henry being my first elmer.

My small station consists of an Elecraft KX3, an Icom IC-7000 and an Icom IC-208H. My primary HF antenna is an Alpha-Delta DX-EE Multiband Diople along with a LDG IT-100 Auto Tuner.

I QSL direct 100% of my first-time contacts and again as requested. So, it's important that your mailing address be correct on QRZ. If not, you should email me quickly with your correct mailing address. A SASE is not necessary, I will cover the postage. I enjoy trading QSL cards and I would appreciate a return card but no hard feelings if you don't send me your card. - SWL reports are welcomed too!

Member of American Radio Relay League (ARRL), Columbia County Amateur Radio Club, (CCARA) Amateur Radio Club of Augusta (ARCA) and the Old Man International Sideband Society (OMISS) Member #8860.

I enjoy the fellowship with my old-time friends and making new friends in this great hobby.

I've been happily married to my beautiful wife Katrina (W1ZZT) for more than 30 years and we have two wonderful children. Our daughther, Ashton - W1ASH, is in the photo with me above.
