I've been a Ham since first receiving my license on 12/26/1963 (WN9KQB). My first (Novice) Ham Station was a Knight Kit T60 transmitter with a Knight Kit R-100 receiver. Had a dipole antenna in my parents backyard. I didn't get my tech ticket until a few years later. My callsign then was WA9RIF. I then added a Hallicrafters SR-42 to my shack to operate on 2 meters. I had some type of beam I put up on a 30 ft tower, still at my parents home. I belonged to the Joliet Amateur Radio Society (JARS) for many years while living in Illinois. Moved to Florida in 1985. My call was N9EMM until I got my General license in 2001. New vanity call W4RFA was then issued in 2004.
Passed the Extra exam in April, 2016
In my current shack I'm running a Icom IC-7300 into a MFJ magnetic loop antenna (Many HOA restrictions.) I run a Icom ID-7100A in the mobile and ID-51A portable.
