Hello OMs, YLs, XYLs and SWLs,

I was first licensed in 1964, at the age of fourteen, as WN5IXY. I have had a love for Ham Radio ever since. If anyone had a hand in getting me involved in Ham Radio, it would be Hugh Abfalter. He was the Chief Engineer at KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City which my dad operated. I remember when I was ten or eleven, my Dad, Ab (everyone called him Ab) and I were in Ab's kitchen. While we were standing there, Ab was copying code from his shack. I thought, wow I wish I could do that. I would give anything to remember his call, but I cannot. It was a nine call from Decatur, IL. He was the Chief there also for my Dad, at WTVP-TV Ch. 17.

At the moment, I am in an apartment and do not have a fixed station. Except for a Yaesu FTM-350AR.

In my truck, I use an Icom ID-5100A with a Comet SBB-224 antenna. For HF I use an Icom IC-7300, an Ameritron ALS-500M Amp and a Tarheel 200HP Screwdriver Antenna.

I work 75, 40, 20 and 17 SSB. I enjoy CW, but am not very proficient.

My handhelds are a Kenwood TH-F6a, an Icom ID-51a Plus and a Tytera MD-380.

I belong to the ARRL and the QCWA. 

I love radio and have been in broadcasting most of my life. I began working for my Dad at KOCO-TV, the ABC affiliate in Oklahoma City after school, week-ends and summers. After graduating from high school, I moved to New York City to work for ABC Television Network News. I then moved back to Oklahoma City and worked for KTOK Radio which at the time was owned by Jimmy Stewart but now is owned by iHeartRadio, like just about everything else. Afterwards, I helped start, put on the air and train Bahamians for ZNS Television. The Television Network of the Bahamas. I did some broadcast consulting for the governments of Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and The Cayman Islands. I was also one of the founders of KOKH-TV, the first independant television station in Oklahoma City. It is now the FOX affiliate. I also put KPSP-TV on the air in Palm Springs. It is now the CBS affiliate. Mixed in with all of this I sold a whole lot of TV and radio and was SM for a radio group in Monterey, CA.

But that was all then. This is now. How things change over the years.

I enjoy Ham Radio, Carmel-by the-Sea, Big Sur, Pebble Beach, Golf, Pizza, Coca-Cola, Strong Coffee and Milk.

Thanks for stopping by my QRZ page.

73, de greg, WG1N
