       QCWA #37449   (57 Yrs Licensed)        10-10 # 26860                                                                       

    Blairsville, Union County, Georgia is a small town surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest in the North Georgia mountains, 120 miles north and east of Atlanta.  I was first licensed in 1960, at age 15.  I was very active until 1986, when the three children needed more of my attention with soccer, Girl and Boy Scouts and school but I always maintain my license.  I served 22 years in the U.S. Navy retiring in 1985.  Duty stations included: Submarine School, Groton, Conn (Grad), ET"a"/DS"a" School, Great Lakes (Grad), DS"C: School, Mare Island , CA (Grad), USS Long Beach (CGN-9), DS Detailer - BUPERS, NESEP Student - Miami University, Oxford, OH (Commission), Naval Flight Officer Training (Wings of Gold), VP-24, NAS JAX - TACCO, Mission Commander, VP-30 - Instructor, OPS Officer Midway Island, COMPATWING Eleven, NAS JAX. Retirement.

​     I operated as WV2YVG (1960), WN2AFW/8 (Miami University, Oxford, OH), WB8NAR/4 (Orange Park, FL), and

   WD4CVK/KH4 (Midway Island 1979-1980).  My Midway Island Shack.







     I'm currently operating an IC-7300 into an Cushcraft R9 Vertical.  My TS-520S complete station is still operating in my shack but I love the flexibility the IC-7300 gives me.  I enjoy working bearfoot and someday may look at an amp.

​    R9 Vertical in the front of the house.  This antenna does not require a ground plain.  The ground plain is attached to the bottom of the antenna but they must be at least 10 feet (3m) above the ground.  I have mine on a pole 11 feet 3 inches (3.38m) from the ground.




                            Max is my Ham Radio buddy, I talk, he sleeps.







The QTH in last winters snow.  We sit at the 2,000 foot (609.6m) level on a mountain five miles (8 km) outside of Blairsville, Union County, Georgia.
