Biography

I was introduced to ham radio when I was 12 years old in 1952. My father was a spark operator and worked for Philco and Motorola Radio in Chicago. He was in the National Guard when WW2 ended. There was always plenty of radio books around the house and I was intrigued reading about spark transmitters. It was my job to run ahead to the newsstand to get the Sunday paper after church. There w9JOZ was reading a CQ magazine and we instantly became blood brothers. He taught radio in WW2 and then became one of the first OSS officers for the duration of the war. He gave me the Novice exam and I became KN9EUV in 1955 and took my General exam in 1956 in Chicago. I built a WRL Globe Chief 90 kit on the kitchen table and dad let me use his Hallicrafters S19R receiver he bought in 1939. I enlisted in the Navy in August 1958 and after boot camp became a radioman. A year later I was a Radioman 3rd class and just before being discharged in 1961 I had passed the 2nd class petty officer exam.

I am 78 years old and enjoy ham radio every day. I had met my XYL on a blind date April 2, 1961 and was discharge from the Navy August 14 and got married August 26.t 26th.
