I was first licensed as WN6GFJ in 1964. Back then you held a Novice license for one year and could not renew it. We were also limited to 75 watts and crystal controlled transmitters. My first station was a Harvey- Wells TBS-50D transmitter, National NC-270 receiver and dipole antenna. By 1965, I became WB6GFJ and held that call until 1997 when I became K6GFJ. I enjoy chasing DX, Contests, IOTA, HF QRP, plus OSCAR activities on the HEO satellites. Other calls I have held include KH6GJW, KL7FFT, XE0GFJ, 3D2FB, ZK1XE, ZL0AKO, VK3BZZ, and FO0FB. If you need a card for any of my operations using any of these calls, feel free to send me an SASE or an SAE with return postage and your QSL card. While I have been chasing DX since 1963, and I'm on the DXCC Honor Roll. For now, I need only P5 to have worked all of the active entities. I used to be QSL manager for a number of stations, but lost all of their logs in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.
