I have been licensed since 1954, first as W4EGY and then in 1976 I obtained the call W4PK. I primarily chase DX but I do dabble in some of the contests too. My favorite mode is RTTY, having gotten the bug back in 1959 with a surplus Teletype Model 15 WX machine. I have RTTY DXCC #6 from the ARRL, dated 4 Jan 1977. This was before the days of spotting networks! I finally obtained Honor Roll status for this mode in 2007.
