Biography

I am 70 years old and my best guess is that I have been a ham about 42 years. In 1980 I was serving in the army at Ft Bliss, TX or El Paso. I got my ticket in El Paso and my first call was KA5LPB. I still have QSL cards from 1983-1984 when I was HL9SN. I had to upgrade to General in order to operate in Korea (N5FSN). I also worked 15 Meters WAS as a Novice and time wise this is what I came up with.

I recently changed my call sign because I needed change in my life. N5FSN was issued to me 40 years ago. Actually my wife passed away of cancer. She died in my arms and it is time to move on.

I enjoyed county hunting. Its a lot of fun. I would encourage anyone to participate.

I was in the US Army from 1970-1992. I fought war in Vietnam and Desert Storm. I have been fighting protesters since my return from Vietnam. I left Vietnam 60 days after the ceasefire. The war was over but they protested us anyway. Kind of like the Trump election, it was over but they protested anyway. Actually, they aren't very smart. The protester fight I hope has come to a halt, but if you insist bring it on.

A new and more challenging fight has come to me now. The doctors still don't know what the outcome with be over my exposure to Agent Orange, or the Anhtrax vaccine I got during Desert Storm. My lungs aren't very good anymore and I have nueropathy pretty bad. I was on a ventalater and oxygen for over a year, but as my wife lay dieing next to me from cancer I reached up and turned my machines off. I couldn't hear her cry out in the night. A few days later she died peacefully in my arms at the hospital.

I go by my nickname of Bog which is short for Bogmonte. This is a tribute to the men who served under me during Desert Storm. I was their platoon sergeant.

I do QSL 100%. I prefer a direct paper QSL. No SASE is needed. The only requirement is that I find you in my logbook. My email address is w7zdx.wa@gmail.com. I do eQSL, LoTW, ClubLog for new hams that might not have had the pleasure of using paper logs. All this electronic logging is FB I suppose if a contact has no meaning to you. I have a DXCC from 1984 when I was HL9SN. Never would part with the thousands of QSL cards I acquired because each one represents a memory and never needed a certificate from someone to tell me about my accomplishments. The QSL card is the important thing.

A side note. I enjoy digital. FT8, FT4, JT65 are quick DX modes. I partisipate a lot but in my mind it isn't a real ham mode. Real hams talk to each other. Even old contesters broke out in chat once in awhile. Same goes with the QSL card. Its a personal exchange and not some contact that nobody will ever see or ever care about. I blame this on a bad decision taking away code requirements. I am still a general. Perhaps one day I will become a NO-CODE EXTRA?
