Biography

BIO: https://www.hamqth.com/W7ZDX

I am not exactly sure when I got my first ham ticket. I was traveling around in the US Army and was stationed at Ft Bliss, TX near El Paso. WD5KBC (SK) and KA5EPI (SK) administered my Novice test in WD5KBC's garage. My ticket arrived and I was officially KA5LPB. Worked WAS CW on 15 meters. Then I came down on orders for another tour in Korea (5 years total). I upgraded to General so I could operate from Korea, but I should have also taken the Advanvced test, but I was young and in a big hurry. During that tour I was HL9SN and AAB6SN. I ran phone patches to 29 Palms California on the MARS frequencies. Before I left for Korea decided to change my call because I thought it would be kool to have a 1x3. The FCC issued me N5FSN and I held on to it for over 40 years until on 23 Dec 2020 my life changed as my wife died in my arms of stage 4 cancer. After a few months I got back on the radio but N5FSN seemed to have lost steam so I decided to move on and did something I never thought I would do. I got a vanity call, W7ZDX.

After that my only life was ham radio. I went to the store when I needed dog or cat food, then I would stock up on food for myself. Then one day this beautiful young lady walked into my life, She put me on probation for a year. She also became KK7FJZ and holds a General Class license. I turned 70 not long ago and who would have thought this would happen to me, so I have much to be grateful for and the future looks very bright.
