KH6II since 1975
Vietnam Brownwater Navy Combat Veteran 1965 - 1967. Gotta like the speed of those PBRs, the twin 50 was not too shaby either...
After my Vietnam tour, I was stationed at Fleet Weather Central in the computer room as the numerical products supervisor. Total of 6 years in the service.
After being discharged from the Navy as an E5, I started with NCR corp for 14 years and became a senior engineer.
Original Ham License in 1975 by and with code test in Kona Hawaii with Technician 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 Texas where I now use an icom 7300 just running barefoot, feeding an 130 foot endfed wire antenna through a MFJ 998 tuner, with a height of about 10 feet above the ground.
