Biography

As a youngster living in Oakland California I was interested in listening to short wave broadcast and ham operators on the 40 meter band. Building many Heathkit and Knightkit radios was my most enjoyable spare time activity in the 1960's and 1970's. Ham radio was introduced to me in high school in the summer of 1967 by my high school teacher, W6LWX (now SK). W6YJ was my Oakland Technical High School club station call sign at that time. A small group of students met after school with our teacher to be on the air. It was most exciting when we made a distant contact. I received my Novice Class License with call sign WN6ZWW on January 2, 1968. After a few short months I was upgraded to General class in April, then to Advanced class in August of 1968 with call sign WB6ZWW. Final upgrade was to Extra Class in 1980 with call sign KS6Q. All exams required Morse Code test. In 2002, my call sign was changed to N1GF. Then to W6GF as of November 24, 2018. Ham radio has been part of my life for the past half century. I enjoy contesting, rag chewing and digital modes on the 20 and 40 meter bands.

Happy DXing and 73's, Gary
