My father introduced me to SW radio with a few stories of his short tenure as a ham (9BWD) in St. Louis and taught me to use a Hallicrafters SX-25 which he purchased new in 1939. It was not until 30 years later that I became a ham thanks to the efforts of Bill "Doc" Eichorn WB6KZO (SK). A Yaesu FT-2000D feeds an MA5B Cushcraft for 20 through 10 and a dipole for 40 & 80. The antennas are on top of or hanging from a 40 foot Rohn 25G. I'm also active locally on VHF & UHF frequencies. I am always pleased to QSL and you may do so direct or use LOTW

As you may have determined my call is a vanity call. It was held by the late Claude Steen of Pasadena, CA. He was apparently a member of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Amateur Radio Club. I base this on a for sale listing in the July 1977 JPL ARC newsletter. May he rest in peace. I will care for the call well.
