I was originally licensed as KA3BZC, upgraded and got a new call N3AWL. Upgraded again and got KB3SH. Went out for Extra and
got a new call, KG3M. I'm happy with that call and I think I'll keep it. I've been a ham since 1978.
I'm active on DSTAR ref30C, CW and RTTY and HF mostly 75 mtrs. I've worked all states mostly QRP, with a CW endorsement. I'm
a FIST member and my number is 12410 . I've worked DXCC, WAS and WAC.
I got my license in Baltimore, Maryland and lived there till 2000 when I retired from International Paper co in Odenton, Maryland
with 39 years service. I'm now in Bronson, Florida a little town south of Jacksonville and north of Orlando. The closest town
My HF gear here is a Icom 756 pro3, My Amp is a Ameritron 811H, My antenna is a Off set Windom 6-80 Meters. My 2 mtr gear
is a Icom 706MKIIG, 2 mtr Antennas are a 14 element Hy-Gain Beam and a 2 mtr Ringo Ranger. Check out some of my shack ham
I just acquired a new QRP rig, A TenTec R-4020 it seems to be a very nice little rig. I highly recomend it.
There were three hams who were instrumental in getting me started into Hamming, W3DTN, W3IQK and K3KHG I want to thank them
for all their help and patience. W3IQK is a silent key now but was a real great HAM in the old days. Many a fine story he
would tell about the old days in Ham Radio.
