I was first licensed in 1968 as WN9CAC in East Gary, Indiana.  Six months later I upgraded to General in 1969, with the call WB9CAC. I eventually upgraded to Advanced Class in 1991, and Extra in 1993.

My first rig was a Drake 2-NT transmitter and a 2C receiver. I overcame the crystal control restriction by building, on a metal chassis, a multiple switching unit for crystals. The unit had 12 octal sockets that could hold two FT-243 crystals each, twenty-four altogether. With a multi-position switch I was able to have several frequencies available easily. It was often said I was running a VFO, which was illegal to use as a novice, just had many crystals. When I passed mu General, I built an Eico 722 VFO which worked quite well with the 2NT. After a period of time I acquired a Drake R4B receiver and T4XB transmitter. The antenna was a Hygain18AVQ.

President of the Lake County (Indiana) Amateur Radio Club, W9LJ (1971 - 1972).

My current rig is a K3 and the antenna is a HyGain AV 680 vertical. I prefer CW as my operating mode and am an avid county hunter.
