have been a ham radio operator since the early 1960s, I started with WA7ALG when I was living in Portland, Oregon. In 1967, I moved to California and got WB6ZDQ. In 1974, I moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and got WA4LRM. When I moved back to California, I surprisingly still have the same call.

My old ham shack located at Portland, Oregon back in the late
60s. I had NCX-3 at that time. My former call was WA7ALG
I was having QSO back in the '60s from Portland, Oregon.
