Dave Edmonds , K4DME

Many thanks to Joe KK5NA for being our CWA adviser and for nominating me. The advanced level class was fun and interesting with great classmates. What a fine service CWops provides to the world of CW.

I was first licensed in 1968. It has been an interesting hobby over the years. In addition to my K3s I have a few vintage and QRP radios which are all fun to operate. Other interests include flying classic airplanes, working on old cars, and tinkering in my garage.

I have been retired from the electrical construction industry now for 21 years. My wife and I enjoy camping and hiking in the mountains and we travel as much as possible.

I have 3 children, none of whom are interested in Ham Radio, but they have given me 8 grandkids and so far 2 great grandkids.

Thanks to all for helping me get here and I’m looking forward to meeting you on the bands.
