Originally licensed as KA7CRA in the late 70's my Elmer KC7GF (WA6TZO) gave me the Novice test.  I was surprised when he had announced I'd passed. Art loaned me a transiever designed for SSB for me to use doing CW. It had terrible Chirp. So, I didn't Woop Di Woop Woop too much.

Shortly there after I took my Technician and passed. I struggled with code seemed I couldn't get past the 10WPM. That and I'm the worlds worst speller. Then as things go, life happens and my drive to keep up in Ham radio failed. I went inactive for a vary long time almost 20 years.

Living in Oregon, it was discovered that every 500 to 700 years there is a major earth quake. My car pool partner suddenly had lots of questions of “should the big one come how do we contact home?” We talked a lot about ham radio. This got my juices going again. I grandfathered into getting my General license and the summer of 2014 took and passed my Extra. That's when I go the vanity call W7RTM. The car pool partner got licensed KF7UQL. The wives still haven't. Hope springs eternal.

I'm located in Philomath Or. just west of Corvallis the home of Oregon State University. My primary rig is a Yaesu FT-950. Still sussing all that it can do. My antenna is a G5RV up on a 50' push up mast. I have a 60 ft' tower laying in the back of the shop. I hope to put up one of these fine days when time and money have come together.

I listen more than talk.
