Ham Member Lookups: 1165


Have been licensed continuously since receiving my first ticket, KN8BRF, in early 1956 in Michigan along with my dad, KN8BRG, who had a long time interest in radio and TV.  He was my mentor (we did not know the term Elmer then) and we decided to get our tickets together.  Had a QSO with him from Germany via DL1FE while I was an exchange student in Karlsruhe.  That cemented my interest in electronics and ham radio.  Got a BSE(EE) in 1963 and avoided the draft by joining the Air Force.  Dad and I got new sequential callsigns, W7DNH and I in 1966 (FCC rules at that time) when my folks retired to Arizona.

                                   Carol, my bride,  now has his call.  


After a dual electronics career of aerospace (mainly in radar) and 35+ years in the active and reserve Air Force, we stopped moving for a while. Retirement to the Rocky Mountains put an end to the sequential lulls in ham activity.  Belong to QCWA, a local radio club and a couple of nets.  Erected a 50 foot tower with a Force 12 four-bander and numerous other antennas.


What fun!  Our Lord has been good to us!  Am also getting back into CW and hope someday to tie my Dad's speed of somewhere in the 30 WPM range.
