I was first licensed back in 1956 at the age of 13 as KN6VKO, a novice to say the least. One morning before Jr. high school, I worked my first DX, VS1HC. Wasn't even trying. That was the start. Now, 60 years later I'm still at it with the same call and have worked DXCC on 5 bands, one of them being 160 (which doesn't count by ARRL guide lines) So the challenge goes on for 80 meters. Isn't it great that our hobby keeps us going all these years.

I work mainly CW unless there is no other way to get the contact.  May even try digital (RTTY) again one day. Rig is a Icom 746PRO, a Heathkit SB-220 when needed (with a 160 meter conversion) , a Nye Viking antenna tuner and a dipole. Beverage and inverted "L" for 160. Most of my DX contacts were made with 100 watts and the dipole or inverted L .

I was hooked but never really focused on DXCC and certainly not 5BDXCC. All that was for the "big guns". It wasn't until we moved to North Carolina and retired that I thought "I can do this". Now I also have WAS on 160 and WAZ on 20. One band is enough and time to move on to the next challenge.

Look for me on 80 searching out those last few.
