Biography

I was originally licensed in 1978 as a Boy Scout and recieved my Novice License. Then forgot about it for many years. I was talking to my father who got licensed for the 1st time as a retiree because a class was offered. Both him and my mother both got licensed. This got me thinking. I decided to study for my Technician and got that, then on to General and got that and then to on Extra as KK4MDX. I then was moving and came across an old box of my childhood things and there was my original license NA1YXV which then became WA1YXV when the Novice designation disappeared. I then applied for that call sign as a vanity as it was still available. I am still very much a novice learning this hobby. The morse code I learned as a child is now lost in my memory although that will be my next challenge.

I have been living in the Saint Augustine, Florida area since 2003. I was moving recently and came across an old box of my childhood things and there was my original license NA1YXV which then became WA1YXV when the Novice designation disappeared. I then applied for that call sign as a vanity as it was still available. I am still very much a novice learning this hobby. The morse code I learned as a child is now lost in my memory although that will be my next challenge.

I am currently working primarily mobile during my 45 min commute time (and some work breaks) using a Yaseau ft-857 thru a mag mounted mfj-1699t along with a ldg z-100 antenna tuner for minor tweaks without adjusting the wip length. The antenna appears to work equally as well on 20 meters as my hamstick while being less than half the height

Equipment

Yaseau ft-857d with MFJ 1699T and LDG z100 tuner all used as mobile
