Lifelong resident of Columbus, Ne. My mother will tell you I've been a ham all my life but I earned my General ticket ( KC0MUJ ) on April Fools Day 2002. How appropriate! Upgraded to Extra in November 2005. I always had an interrest in electronics and communications. I also enjoy music and play guitar when the rig isn't keyed up. No VOX here! My lovely wife Tammy & I have four great children, two boys & two girls, none of which have any desire to become radio amateurs, so usually it's just me in the shack. I also like to work digital modes on HF, and SSTV. Shack has only one solid state rig, so I'm usually turning knobs. Love them Hallicrafters!
