Amateur Radio

Main Biography Family
Favorites Interests

I became interested in Amateur (Ham) Radio in the 1960's but never pursued the hobby since I didn't want to take the time to learn Morse Code.   Thirty some odd years later, in 1993, I became licensed as a "no code" Technician.  I later advanced to a "coded" Technician or Tech Plus than later to Advanced.  I now hold an Amateur Extra license.  My current call sign is WU4H, prior to that I was known as KE4EMA and KS4LS.

My boyhood inspiration was from W6OLV and my elmer is N4XVF (ex WB0UKK.)

Amateur Radio Station MM/WU4H in the Highland Hotel, Stirling Scotland


MM/WU4H's antenna system (2 Slinkys center fed), the loop in the coax is a balun.
