This call sign was originally issued around 1935 to my friend John. He served in the Army as a radio operator and landed on Omaha Beach on 9 Jun 1944 and served the remainder of the war in France and Germany. He continued in amateur radio til his passing in 1996 or so. I am proud to assume his call sign in his and all military personnel. John administered my Novice exam in 1960. He was always around to BS about anything - every so often he'd pour us couple of shots (I was only 14 or 15 at the time) and toast something or someone.

One day a friend of mine, W8RSS, was visiting him and John pulled a dusty box out of somewhere and handed it to W8RSS. "Take it" John said. W8RSS opened the box and it was a Vibroplex keyer that the Army had issued to John during the war! W8RSS still has the Vibroplex and box.

After 46 years in the hobby, I finally, in 2007, installed my first tower and beam. I want to thank WD0M, K6AER and K9CSM (he does not neighbor)for their technical and moral support throughout the project. It never would have happened without their assistance.
