I was first licensed in February 1962 as WNØCLR, a Novice. My elmer was Bob Packer, WØVHE(SK). The license was good for one year and non-renewable. In November of 1962 I upgraded to a Technician and my call changed to WAØCLR. In 1965 I upgraded, for what I thought would be the last time, to a General, a General Class License had ALL Amateur Privileges at the time. I upgraded to an Advanced Class in 1977 and finally to Extra in 1993. In April 2ØØØ I applied for the vanity call ACØL. In April 2ØØ2 I applied for the vanity call NØUF.

I lived in Central Minnesota until 1985, then moved to New Jersey for three years. Then back to the Minneapolis area for two years. I moved to Gladstone, Missouri in 1991. Then I went to work for the Hutchinson Telephone Company in Minnesota in July of 2005.

In 1971 I operated 8Ø-1ØM Mobile on a road trip from St Cloud, MN to Winnipeg to Kenora to International Falls and Home.

In 1995 I held a license for Great Britain. I did a very limited operation as I was going to power my handheld with the cigarette lighter, but the rental car didn't have one! I was on the Edinburgh Repeater twice as GMØ/WAØCLR in December, (the licence was also valid for England, & Wales but I never operated from these countries).

In 2ØØØ I was in Belize as V31TD before the CQWW SSB Contest. I logged over 1ØØØ QSOs during the week. What a blast! We used V31GE to log over 53ØØ Q's for the contest, contest qsl's via AKØA.
