Over 60 Years in Ham Radio

Licensed as WN0UBD, Maple Lake, MN in April of 1954.  1st Station: Hallicrafters S-38C Receiver,  Homebrew 6L6 power oscillator from the ARRL  publication "How to Become a Radio Amateur".  Rock bound on 3736 KHz.   In 1955 I dropped the "N" from the call and upgraded the station to a S-40A Rx, Heathkit AT-1 & VF-1 VFO.
I began 144 MHz AM & CW operation in 1956 with a surplus T-23/ARC-5,  a home brew plate
  modulator, a home brew receiving converter and a home brew 6 element Yagi made from old TV antennas.

Current equipment:  ICOM 756PRO, Collins 30L-1 Amp.
