Got out of the Navy on 19 Jan 82.
I was a radioman, and got interested in Amateur Radio on the midwatches when I had nothing but time to listen, and learn electronics using HeathKit.
Received my first license in the Portland Maine area where I was licensed as KA1JGK.
Operated for a brief bit in Odessa Texas as NNN0YGY as part of the Navy Mars group.
Other than that I haven’t had a operating station since then with all of the travelling I did from 1988 till 2003.
Still don’t have a operating station yet, but I have the start of one.
Got FLDIGI copying the internet teletype station today
