Originally licensed as KN4DRV (novice) in 1954; K4DRV in 1955. Finished high school in 1960 and then off to college and grad school. Ham radio took a 2d place to education, career, family and children. After a very long hiatus (over 57 years), I decided that it was time to re-enter the world of amateur radio. Passed Technician element in July of 2011 and General in August of 2011. Passed Extra in March 2012. Was able to re-claim my old call as I was the original licensee and the call had not been reassigned. Happy to be back as K4DRV.
Running a Kenwood 590S rig with a folded di-pole and a MFJ high-Q "loop" strung in my attic which do a great job considering the limitations of an attic antenna. Living in a town home severely limits my antenna choices.
Enjoy working DX on SSB or CW. Also enjoy a little "rag chewing" from time to time.
I am truly amazed at the changes that have occurred during my time away from ham radio. Having just retired from the bench,I look forward to being active more.
