QTH, Fenton, Missouri.
The rig, like the operator, is not up to date but still does the job.
A Kenwood TS-430S and an Icom IC-28A. The antennas: an inverted Vee
for HF and a ground plane for 2 meters. The first rig back in 1955 was an 807 home brew and a Hallicrafters SX-28 receiver.

I was born in St. Louis 74 years ago and spent most of my life here except for 8 years in Indianapolis, Indiana. My working life was in the Radio and Television Broadcast industry, the first five years at KFUO radio in St. Louis, then 8 years at WISH radio & TV in Indianapolis, Indiana. Finally 32 years at KSD-TV which later became KSDK, channel 5 in St. Louis. It was during my time back at WISH-TV that I got my Ham Ticket as W9PVR in 1955.
