The Original "Stormhound"
Hello there, and welcome to my Amateur Radio page.
This one's pretty simple for the moment, but it'll do until I have time
to put a bit more up.

My chronology of Amateur Radio (and other related
trivia about which virtually nobody much cares)<g>:
It is now
1975 - First got interested in acquiring a license about
the same time I got interested in electronics. Studied some Morse
code, but never really had time or resources to do much.
1976 - Nothing specifically to do with ARS, but helped my
father build a color TV (one of the old Heathkits).
1987 - Graduated UMR with BS in Comp Sci, having gotten out
of most of the electronics.
1988 - The old Heathkit color TV gives up the ghost.
1989 - Found this neat new thing called Compuserve.
Established myself as "Stormhound".
1994 - While on Compuserve, found this neat new thing called
the Internet. Perpetuated my "Stormhound" handle.
9/1998 - While out on the Internet, ran across some things
having to do with Amateur Radio, and remembered my original interest from
23 years before.
10/5/1998 - Decided it was about time to do something, as
I now had a chance to do it. Got hold of license and code study materials.
10/30/1998 - Took and passed the tests for my first license,
a Tech Plus class.
11/7/1998 - Got my first rig, a Kenwood TM-G707 (2m/440),
and started listening to other hams while wondering when my callsign would
11/12/1998 - Got my first callsign, KC0EKV (and there was
much rejoicing). Started studying for a General class ticket.
