My previous call sign was KG5ANP From 3-3-14 to 1-27-15

Hello and thanks for looking me up. I have been around some form of radio all my life. My interest in radio started with my dad KG5ANO he started the radio bug for myself and my older brother in the old days of CB the 80s for me. We would watch him work on radios on mom's kitchen table till it was time to eat then he had to clear off the radios and make room for us hungry kids. LOL we learned a lot from him and still do from time to time. Later on we started doing our own tinkering and started working on our own radios and other electronics. I was always interested in how things work mechanically and electronically so naturally I took nearly everything apart growing up some never found their way back together but I learned something about it and that was that the engineer that came up with the idea for it was way smarter than I was lol. Now I have made a career as an Electronics Technician playing with electronics and playing radio when time allows. I hope to catch you on the air. 73
