W5LA - Whisky Five Lima Alpha

Licensed 1961

Previous Calls:

Me at my first station: Philmore CR5-AC and Globe Scout Deluxe running 75 watts (the max a Novice could run). I had two crystals for 40 meters: 7165 kHz and 7175 kHz and one that would work on 15 meters (don't remember that frequency!). Since we were "rock-bound" it was usual to tune the entire Novice band after calling CQ.

I shared the station with my brother, Alton, whose call sign was WN4BAD.

This is my Hy-Gain TH5-MK2 that was installed in June 2016. It is at 52' above the ground.

Check out the CW and RTTY Mortty. I assemble and test them for a small fee.
