Ham Radio Overview

I’m a nut about Ham Radio. I think I learned about Amateur Radio through osmosis. When I just just a small child, I shared my bedroom with my Dad’s Ham Radio Shack. It was always fun for me to observe him as he played radio. Once I completed college, I got the bug again. That was when I started studying for my ham radio license. I was originally licensed as a Technician Class Operator in April of 1993 and received the call KB5ZUD. I quickly upgraded to General Class and passed the 13 word per minute morse code requirement. In 2007, the FCC eliminated all requirements related to morse code proficiency. CW wasn’t one of my major interests, so, I took advantage of this and upgraded to Extra Class Operator. In 1998 I applied for my vanity call sign and received K5TTT. I enjoy many aspects of the amateur radio hobby and I hope you find some of the information here useful.
