I'm Ron in Shreveport, Louisiana! Greetings from the Bayou State!  No I don't keep an alligator for a pet.. I ate him!

Update January 2016!  I'm over halfway to 5BDXCC!  Gotta get my low band antenna's sorted out before winter conditions so I can complete DXCC on 80M!

 I was first licensed in 1969 as WN5AIA made my first contact with WN8AAD on 11-24-1969. I upgraded to General in December of 1970 and received WB5AIA. My first contact as a General was with WB4OXD on12-19-1970, but was still on cw using an EICO 720. Thanks to the Generosity of Roger W5QEP, I soon had a Johnson Valiant and made my first Phone contact on 1-10-1971 with Roger. I upgraded to Extra in the early 80's and picked up the vanity call of W5SUM in 1996. W5SUM was the callsign of my Elmer, Robert ( Junior ) Ehrhardt.

Although Amplitude Modulation is my favorite Mode of operation, you can find me working DX on CW and SSB. I love old military radio's and have had a mix and match of them over the years. Currently I am using a working SCR274N Station, unmodified, running on dynomotors! JUST ACQUIRED a Hallicrafters BC669! What a great old military rig! Once again through the help of AB5S Dave Stinson.

Also thanks to the Generosity of David AB5S I now have a GREAT working Heathkit DX-100. Paired with a NC183D I use this station on 3890 and 3885 usually early in the morning.
