I’ve been a ham for 56 years & a cw traffic handler almost as long. Enjoy contesting, dxing, & ragchewing. Also enjoy motorcycling, horseback riding, & aviation. Retired now from 30+ years in HVAC & enjoying the hobbies that work always got in the way of, hi. I was mentored by my father (sk) who was Army signal corps at a very young age & first licensed in 1964 as WN0MZJ. Upgraded to general a year later as WA0SXR. This followed by extra class & K0TQ. My station is a FT-950 rig, a HF Auto tuner, an ALS 1300 amp, all going to three antennas, full wave 160 loop, 1/2 wave 160 inverted vee, & a hex beam, all at roughly 35 feet. CW ROCKS! See you on the air. 73,This biography is what appeared in Solid Copy when the member joined CWops.
