My Dad and I passed our novice exam in 1957 and recieved the call signs KN0KFA and my Dad KN0KFB, Barney Sr. Later my Brother Barney Jr. came aboard as K0VUA. Much later my Father in law "Daddy John" went all the way to Advanced, passing 13 wpm at age 77 and became N5FQW. I checked into the MM Net many times during my 30 years in the oil patch. Thanks to the MM Net ( our meeting place ) and the hams that ran patches for us, we had many wonderful qso's. My J-38 still sets on the op desk and is frequently used. I have a 52' crank up with a TH6DXX and an Inv Vee for 40-75. Im always on the lookout for DX and Special Event stations. I have just over 300 DX countries confirmed. My favorite S.E. efforts are The Navajo Code Talkers from Window Rock Arizona and Route 66 On The Air. My "Blast from the Past" is talking to The Possum Trappers every night on 75 meters. Good old fashioned Rag Chew. My station is an Icom 775 DSP and an Ameritron AL-811H amp. I still put my first store bought Xmtr. an Elmac AF-67 on the air for SKN a J-38 straight key and a paper log.
