K4MT Gary

I was first licensed in 1964 as WN2RFH at age 12. After my novice time was up I upgraded to general as WB2RFH. Later when I upgraded again and had moved from New York to North Carolina I changed my call to KD4AW. And received my current call after upgrading to Extra.

While in High School I was active in Navy Mars during the Vietnam war. I got great satisfaction delivering health and welfare messages to anxious families. I was net control for the entire Eastern USA and with ancient mechanical teletypes and tape punches, passing thousands of messages for our deployed troops.

Afterwards I went into the US Navy as an ET repairing shipboard communications systems. While on board ship (USS Macdonough DLG-8) we built a heath station and amplifier and placed a 5 element beam at 180 ft on top of the mast. With that setup I ran stateside phone patches every night for the crew while we were on long deployments. I ran over 5000 phone patches for the crew, Admiral and his staff.

On our cruise around South America I was met at the pier by ham clubs at every port and received honorary membership to over a dozen clubs in many South American countries and visited/operated some super ham shacks.

I have worked for JPS Communications doing repair on their products and for Tentec first in sales. then in test engineering and finally as MIS manager.

I love to repair and restore old radios and now that I am retired I work on as many as I can find.
