Amateur radio has been one of my most long-lived hobbies. I built crystal sets, took apart old radios, and listened to short wave on an old Philco console receiver back in the mid-1950's. After learning the Morse code while a Boy Scout, I took the Novice amateur radio license test in 1958 and waited three months to find out that I had passed and had been issued the call letters KN9REE in February, 1959.

Over the years I held calls K9REE, K7NV and most recently K1NV.

In the fall of 2005, Sally passed the exam for her Technician Class license becoming KE7FDD.
