MY LITTLE HAM SHACK

 

Equipment in the picture is a LDG-1000 Pro Autotuner, Kenwood TS-820S and remote VFO, Kenwood TS-830S with a remote VFO and Station Monitor, Kenwood TS-590S, Icom IC-208H, Icom IC-7000, Ameritron AL-811H, not pictured is my Index Laboratories QRP rig, Swan 350, Swan 400, Swan 500 and swan 700, plus other items such as speakers. power supplies, etc.

First licensed late in 1977 an was issued the call WDBQY. I was with the US Air force located in Kansas City, MO. at that time.

Moved to Minot, ND with the US Air Force in the early summer of 1978 and upgraded from Novice to General and then applied later when FCC allowed for a call change for a 1 x 3 call and I received the call of NCKB.

My name is Lawrence but go by the nick name of "BILL" taken from my middle name of  William. Around home I was always called Bill for my fathers name was Lawrence, so it made things easier when anyone called so Bill has stuck with me. When it comes to anything legal it's Lawrence.

Was off the air for several years for my wife came down with lung cancer and of course funds was needed for everyday type of bills etc. for my wife could no longer be employed, so I had sell most all of my equipment to keep us going for awhile.

Then discovered CQ100 by a phone call one day from a local ham (KBINN now SK) and he said he is talking to a friend of mine, and
that he has been looking for me and his call is WA6YNM. Well the rest of the story is I got the bug again installed  CQ100 on my computer and chatted with my old friend everyday for awhile (And Still). But now using Echo link. And since my wife is now clean from cancer. I have been able to obtain a couple of nice HF rigs and 2 meters and some other equipment as you can see in the picture of  MY LITTLE SHACK.
