N3ND - Daniel W. Atchison

I have been a ham since 1963 when 12 years old. My original novice callsign was KN3YRT. Upgraded to General class after Novice class expiration and was assigned WA3BQT (1964). In 1977, upgraded to Extra and requested callsign, N3ND.

N3ND was transferred up and down the east coast and has been active from Delaware, Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, Florida (again), South Carolina, and now once again near the Raleigh, NC area.

N3ND, now retired, worked over 30 years for Motorola and Motorola Solutions.

N3ND loves DXing, contesting, CW, RTTY, and anything to do with computers and radio technology.
