I have been licensed since 1976, when I was assigned the
call of WD5BTB, which I detested on both cw and phone. I
quickly upgraded and received the call of KB5DQ, which I
kept for many years. When the vanity program started, I
requested only one call, my initials, N5PR. The call had
never been issued before.
I am a DX'er at heart, and have worked and confirmed all
countries except for SV2/A. Hopefully, it will be on soon. I
also chase US counties. I use CW, Phone, PSK31, RTTY on
bands 80-10 meters. I primarily work low power, 100 watts
and also some QRP.
After 42 years as a locomotive electrician with the Santa Fe
Railroad (now the BNSF RR), I am now retired and enjoying my
hobbies. My QSL card reminds me of the work I did on these
locomotives. If you hear me on the bands, give me a shout, I
would love to talk to you.
