My first experience with amateur radio was listening to my high school station (W2ZLK), which gave me the bug. I received my Novice ticket (KN2RAM)in 1956, but I let it lapse without upgrading. After retiring from the USAF I moved to AZ and started working as an engineer. An ad in the paper reignited my interest and I tested for my second novice (KB7ITS) about 11 years ago. Soon after that I got my code proficiency up and tested for a General license (N7NYR). By this time tests didn't intimidate me the way they used to and I upgraded to Advanced quickly. Five years later, my family and business responsibilities forced me to put amateur radio on hold again. When I got a renewal notice a few months ago, I decided to study full time and reach my ultimate goal, the Extra ticket. It turned out to be a lot easier than I had expected and, thanks to all that assistance provided by many other hams along the way, I finally made it. I decided to change the new call (AC7QP) and I got my choice on the first try through the FCC vanity process and after 40+ years I'm finally where I dreamed I'd be back in '57. HF, SSB, DXing, rag chewing along with emergency comm fill my time. I'm looking at purchasing a new rig and should be back on the air full time soon. In the meantime, since I am also a corporate pilot, I occasionally try my hand as an aircraft portable. FOR QSLs PLEASE SEND S.A.S.E.
