Was introduced to Ham Radio at the age of 10 by K0CXJ, John Lunder (SK). John lived down the street from me in Moorhead, MN.  Was hooked immediately from that time on.  Two years later we moved to a small town in central ND.  Found myself hanging around the local TV shop and soon was testing tubes. A year later our pastor from church received his licence K0ZZD,(SK) Orrin Etrum. We immedeately started builing Antennas, power supplies and got set up with a Harvey Well TBS-50 and a broken down receiver that I can't remember.  All in all we got him on the air with a pair of balun coils and some 300 ohm twin lead feeding a 300 folded dipole.  What a great achievment.   I ordered a new Licence Manual, $.50, and started studying. Unfortunately sports and girls got in the way. After graduation I went to ND State School of Sicence for Eletronics.  Found my way back to Fargo and besides starting a family, worked hard on CW and the Licence manual and in the summer of 69 received my ham ticket. WA0ZOK.  Today, W0ZOK. Tower was at 120' up until this past summer.  It has had many community repeaters on over the years plus 144 and 432 beams on top for SSB use. It is now at 70' with a Force 12 C-4 and works great.   They, and the tower have survived many ND ice storms. 160, 80, and 40 meter dipoles are at various heights. Love to restore and get on AM with vintage rigs. Have owned and operated an Electronics business for the last 30 some years with plans to retire very soon. Being in my late 60's it's time.  Ham Radio keeps calling.   Travel ND, SD and Western MN. Operate Mobile from my truck with a TS-480 (200 Watts) and various antennas for the bands.
