Hello: KN2UPI was my original call, issued in 1956, one year prior to the creation of the UPI News Service. (very nice of them to provide me with phonetics).smiley Over the years I have taken side trips to other areas of interest including sport aviation, historical aircraft restoration, hunting and fishing but always seem to find my way back to ham radio. Presently I enjoy preserving the heritage of our wonderful hobby by restoring and operating American made vacuum tube (hollow state) equipment.

Ken K2UPI brought in a recent acquisition for his radio collection, an Eldico EE3 electronic keyer from 1959. This rare bird, made in Mineola LI, NY, was originally presented to area ham Harry Shepard by Eldico for unknown reasons, and is serial number 001.
