Ham Member Lookups: 580

 

First licensed as a Novice class with call WN4AVX in August 1953. Updated to General class in 1954.

Built quite a few AM and CW transmitters in my early years during the '50's. Organized the first teen-age net in Alabama (AENT), in 1955.

In the '50's and early '60's I had great fun while earning a living working at a local radio parts house, James W. Clary Co., which sold ham radio equipment. I got to meet quite a few hams and make some life long friends.

Later I enjoyed teaching classes in morse code and electonic theory for obtaining an amateur license. A highlight for me was having the opportunity to teach morse code and electronic theory on public television during the late '60's and early 70's. The program was called "Electronics and The Radio Amateur".

Later, I obtained my First Class Radio Telephone License and worked as a technician (engineer) at the local CBS affiliate WBMG-TV for 20 years. Several other hams worked in the enineering department at WBMG and we all had a great time together. We put the original 146.88 - 146.28 Birmingham, Alabama repeater on the air. The chief engineer, at the time, was also a ham and allowed us to put the antennas on the TV tower.

I am now retired and enjoy getting on line with the computer. I don't own a ham rig and have substituted the internet for ham radio. I still love the hobby though.
