Amateur Radio

Favorites Interests

 

I became interested in Amateur (Ham) Radio in the 1960's but never pursued the hobby since I didn't want to take the time to learn Morse Code.   Thirty some odd years later, in 1993, I became licensed as a "no code" Technician.  I later advanced to a "coded" Technician or Tech Plus than later to Advanced.  I now hold an Amateur Extra license.  My current call sign is WU4H, prior to that I was known as KE4EMA and KS4LS.

My boyhood inspiration was from W6OLV (now an SK) and my Elmer is N4XVF (ex WB0UKK.)
