After My Military Duty I Went To Seattle And There I Met My "Elmer aka Smokey K5kdk now a Silent Key" Who Taught Me The In's & Out's of Amateur Radio.. After Spending A Couple Of Years Around Saigon And Points North I Returned To MY Roots At Detroit Lakes & Got My W0 Call-Sign...
I Picked Up My Extra Class & 2nd Class Radio Telegraph Licences Back When The FCC Changed The Licensing Format In About 68.. My Primary Interest Over The Years Has Been -- DX-ing --
