I've been a licensed Amateur Radio Operator since 1955.
My original call -
My Home QTH was Baltimore, MD.
A year later I upgraded to Tech and my call became W3EGP.
I enlisted in the Air Force in 1958 and in 1961 moved my Home QTH to Florida. My call became K4GBB.
I operated Portable/Moble for over twenty years until I retired from the Air Force in 1979.
I now reside in Citrus County, Florida.
In 1985 I discovered Packet radio.
At that time there were less than a half dozen packet radio stations In Citrus County, Florida.
My first TNC was a Heathkit TNC1.
Together with some Packeteers from Ocala. We installed a Digipeater on the Sky High Ranch, the highest point in Citrus county.
Since then the popularity of Packet Radio has come and gone,
but I still enjoy operating several Packet Radio services.
