Radio has been a fascination of mine as long as I can remember.I recall listening to CW and AM transmissions on my dad’s shortwave receiver late at night when I should have been sleeping. I just could not get over how people could span the globe from a back room with a radio and wire antenna. I was introduced to HAM radio while working as a paper boy at the age of 12. In those days, transportation was a problem and I was not able to get to the FCC field office. After getting married to my beautiful wife Rose, and raising our family of 7 kids (and now 21 grandkids, 1 great grandchild), I finally buckled down and studied, and then took the required tests to get my license. I have not been disappointed, and I have never lost that fascination for the hobby. I have made many friends all over the world, and was recently nominated and accepted into the FOC "First Class CW Operators Club". That was one of the highlights in all of my days of HAMMING (thanks guys). I am an avid CW operator and was only CW for the first 10 years as a HAM (with the exception of a packet station).

I am the founding pastor of The First Apostolic Church, that began 36 years ago with a Home Bible Study. We have a school and a school radio club. During the day I can slip into the radio club station and get some CW in (when school is in session).

I hope to meet you on the air soon. 73, Mike // WR5U (FOC#1871), (FISTS#5954), (SKCC#3241T) (CWOPS#89) (updated 2007)
