    First licensed in ST Louis, MO as a Novice April 1959. My test was given by Rich Zysk KØGSV and his dad
    Steve who later became KØUCG. Later in 1959 I passed the General test in front of an FCC examiner at the
    Federal building in downtown ST Louis just a couple blocks away from Walter Ashe Radio Co.
    July 1963 at age 17 I enlisted in the US Coast Guard and became a Radioman and then Radioman/Cryto.
    When my enlistment was up 4 years later I left the Coast Guard in July of 1967 as an RM2/E5.
    In the Winter of 1971 I moved to Florida to take a job. My new license was K4KJG which I held and was very
    active until I moved back to Missouri in 1978. Back in Missouri I got the call NØARH. Later in 1980 I upgraded
    to Extra and got the call KSØF. This call was a nightmare in use on the air. So, in 1996 I got the vanity call
    KØAZ. I expect to keep this call for the duration and as best I can tell am the first holder of this call.

    I have worked in the two way radio business and toward the end of my working years spent about 15 years in
    the cellular business as a technician and manager. Staying close to communications all my life has been
    the reason Ham Radio is not only a hobby but a passion and way of life. When first licensed and in grade
    school I wanted to work, retire and become a full time ham. In 2009 a layoff/retirement put me in that position.
    Now I get to spend most of my time involved in ham radio in one way or another.

    My interests are wide and varied in the hobby and I hope to show on this web site the things that I have been
    Involved with and am currently working on.
