Now a little bit about me:
I have been in Amateur Radio since June of 1976. I started out as a Technician and received my first licence in november of 76. In January of 1977 I upgraded to General class and presently hold this Class of licence. I went down to the FCC office in downtown San Diego in June of 76 to take the Novice exam. I passed it, and then was asked if  I was intrested in taking  the Technician's written exam, so I did and passed. I was then asked if  I wanted to take the cw portion for the General exam but I missed passing it by 4 letters per minute. My very first licence I received came with the call sign of (WB6VSL) and I held that call until Feb 6 2016. I requested a vanity call of (N6CQW). This was done to honor a very close friend that I have known back when we experamented with Radio Shack TRS-80's. He helped me in learning how to program in basic and to use DOS. We both enrolled in a night class to learn how to program in Pascal and CPM. I remember when he first got into amateur radio where he became a Technician. I can never thank him enough for the things he tought me. (Thank You Roger).

After I graduated from High School I enlisted in the Marine Corp and served from February 4,1971 to Feb 5,1974 even though never serving in Viet Nam. After being out for a year and a half I enlisted in the US Navy from June 26,1976 thru June 27,1978 on board the USS Anchorage (LSD-36) as an IC-man.
