I don't remember the exact year nor do I remember exactly how old I was but I do remember the experience. My father took me to visit a Great Uncle when I was maybe 8...maybe 10. That was the day I decided I was going to become a Ham Radio Operator. I had heard the words "Ham Radio Operator" mentioned when my family talked about my Great Uncle but until the day we went to visit I and saw his shack I had no idea. Him and his wife lived in a trailer and when one entered the door...off to the right was a very large object...seems like it was from ceiling to floor...with knobs and dials. I got a demonstration..I got the bug. I told my father "one of these days I am going to have me one of those Ham Radios!"

Some time later on in life I managed to scrape up enough money to buy my first receiver....it was a Hallicrafters SX 110. I spent hours listening to the shortwave and Ham Bands with that receiver and enjoyed every minute of it.

In 1979 I passed the Novice exam and received my Novice License. Previous call signs were KA7FPZ and KD7PV. When I passed the Extra Class exam I opted to keep KD7PV as there were no 1X2 or 2X1 calls being issued by the FCC at that time. About a year after I Got my Extra Class license the FCC announced that Extra Class license holders could apply for a 2X1 call and by the luck of the draw I got my current call, WB7S.

My wife Susan, WB7SUE, decided Ham Radio was for her so she studied and got her Tech License....no desire to go any further and my youngest son, Charlie got his Novice License, KA7UTV...wishing he would upgrade to Tech one of these days!!

Transceivers I currently own: Yaesu FT-757GX, Yaesu FT-100D, Ten TEc Omni VI+ and my most recent purchase a Ten Tec Omni VII and for 2 meters ... 3 Yaseu FT-8800Rs, one in the shack, one in the Envoy and one in the F-350.

Amplifier: Elecraft KPA500
