Got my Novice license, WN8BYP, in 1968 and General in 1969 as WB8BYP back up in Mason, Ohio. Moved to Virginia with U.S. Navy and became KK4RF. Got the call by chance and kept it after upgrading to Extra. I like to build simple qrp rigs and love to build and operate simple tube transmitters, antenna tuners, swr meters, etc. Mainly work CW. We have 5 sons, one is a General class, Henry, KF4VWX, and the wife is KC4FMZ. Many tnx to QRZ.com.
