I have been an Amateur Radio Operator since 1970. My Novice class call was WN7QLF. I operated for two years using Morse code for hundreds of contacts. I got my General Class license in 1973. I currently hold an Advanced Class license, WA7WKX. I will be getting much more active in retirement, but have been handling message traffic for many years as well as participating in community support activities. During my years of teaching, I mentored 96 students who earned a total of 116 FCC Amateur Radio Licenses.
I am a long-time member of the Washington Amateur Radio Traffic System, the Columbia Basin Net, and the Northwest Single Sideband Net. I am a charter member (# 22) of the Northwest Country Cousins Net.
