KH6II since 1975
After getting back from my Vietnam tour, got a local discharge in Hawaii. Moved to the Big Island where I had this call from the beginning since I passed my Technician license with code requirement in 1975. Just by passed the novice license.
Just kept renewing even after I left Hawaii. Setup first real station using the Kenwood shiney face twins, R-599 and T-599, after moving to Guam. When we moved to Saipan, no station setup. Then moved to Dallas.
