87 turns on the coil and winding. I was born March 7, 1930 in Louellen, Harlan county, Kentucky. I got my Novice Class license in 1985. I held my Novice Class license until 1993 when I upgraded to Extra Class. I worked CW only during this 8 year period as a Novice Class and worked all States except Hawaii and Alaska, and many countries around the world. I work some SSB, mostly CW. So, as you can see, I am an old Brass Pounder at heart.

I retired from 33 years in electronics in 1994. I taught electronics for the State of Kentucky for 12 years. Self employed in electronic communications for 21 years. Enjoying my retirement and rag chewing on CW with my radio friends.
