In the summer of 1965 in Ottawa, Illinois I passed my novice exam and became WN9PCF.  I had a couple of ELMERS, but my boyhood friend Jim WA9LAQ (now W7BX) was the one who got me started. Within 6 months I got my General WA9PCF. Ten years later I moved to Iowa. At that time you could not take your 9 call to 0 land so I became WB0KIU, which I have held for 40 years plus upgrading to Extra Class.  First rig was a Heathkit DX100 and Hallicrafter SX99 and dipole antenna. Purchased a Hallicrafter SR150 transciever in 1972.  Present rig is a Kenwood TS570D as my digital and backup SSB rig. Main SSB rig is a Kenwood TS590SG. Also use a UV82L for VHF/UHF  HT rig.  I retired April 1st, 2014 after 42 years as a large and small animal veterinarian.  I have enjoyed the extra time to get on the air more.  Above is our cat Freddie, He likes DX.   Antennas are a ground mounted R7000 vertical and a 3 element 10 meter yagi.

After 50 years in amatuer radio, I decided to try something new so went digital.  I am happy to report that I am enjoying the new modes (psk31,jt65, and jt9). So hope to see all of you on the waterfall. Who knows I might even take my novice key out of the desk and try CW.  Also been doing satellite with Arrow beam and some SOTA chasing and lastly trying Dstar.
