Blog This is the blog of Gary C. Meyer Check often for changes. Tuesday  08 | 28 | 2012 W0DYD operated from Minnetonka, MN, 42 years. We moved into a townhome in 2007  that has limited antenna space. Equipment consists of a Kenwwod TS590s and a Yaesu FT-100D. I began my hamming career in July of 1951 in Benson, Minnesota. My dad, W0DYC, got me started in ham radio at the age of 14. He became a silent key in April  1997 after an 11 year bout with Parkinson's disease. My youngest of four daughters who resides in Louisville, Colorado is also a ham (previously KB0CMM - now W0DYC,her deceased grandfather's call). My brother Maynard, WA0KNP, is active from  Madison, MN. I retired in June 2001 from teaching school at Ridgewater College in Hutchinson, MN, in electronics, metrology and Computer System Technology. I  continue to conduct Metrology/Quality seminars in industry. I also enjoy communicating  on the internet with Echolink. I installed a Cushcraft MA5B in July 2011 and added a Kenwood TS590s In Nov. 2011. I am back on HF (20 through 10) on   CW, SSB, AM, FM, RTTY, and PSK 31.
