I originally got my Novice license back in the 1971 as WN9GDY, but I never renewed it. Again as KA2CEV in NY in 1979. Anyone have those in your log? If so, let me know!! I got the bug again, so I bought the study guides and read them. Then I got my license Easter 2012 weekend by taking all three exams at the Geff, IL Hamfest and passed them all! I was AC9BV then got my vanity call, WM9I the end of May 2012.

I was using an FT817ND barefoot at 5W with aSpi-Ro A-10dipole up about 30 feet and an LDG 100 Plus auto tuner.


I was able to work Europe, Asia, Africa, North, Central & South America,and the Caribbean.

My grandson, Caleb, also enjoys talking on the radio and joins me in the shack regularly. You may hear him on the air (Kids Day), also! He was 5 in this picture and a budding ham! Next, teach him the code!!

I have a Yaesu FT-990 now and the SignaLink and computer set up. I also use my straight key (a Czech key) here, as well as a Bencher BY-1. I put up an 80 foot wire vertical as well as the SpiRo A-10 136 foot dipole. I have 24 radials cut for 160m for the 80 foot wire vertical. The set up works well and is easier for Caleb to access.























In my first year I was able to get contacts to qualify for the DXCC, WAS, and WAC awards from these stations.  I am also applying for the WPX certificate.  In my second year I qualified for the DXCC 150, CW and Phone endorsements.

73, God bless,es gud DX! CU on the bands!

Joe, WM9I
