I became interest in ham radio in the late 50s, when I earned my Radio merit badge. My first call sign was WN6LDE. I entered the Air Force after graduation from high school. During my 20 years in the USAF I had numerous calls. KA6CDP, N6BLN, WW6F, W6WF.
My primary interest is DXing. All I need is North Korea to confirm them all. I am on the DXCC Honor Roll and have 8BDXCC
My other main interest is Public Sercice. I have been an AEC, EC, DEC, SEC. During the past 50 years I have worked 9 major disasters to included the Challenger crash and Hurricane Katrina.
I retired from the USAF in 1979. I have worked as a liability insurance adjuster, Optical coating tech. Texas Narcotics, Texas Division of Emergency Management (state EOC) from which I retired in 2012.
In addition to Ham radio my interest and hobbies are: private pilot, flying RC airplanes, restoring and driving Model A Fords, Stamp Collection, and Scouting (Silver Beaver, Eagle, Silver Award)
