I started building radios with my dad (WB6CGN), when I in 5th Grade.   I was interested in Ham Radio even before that.    I must have been in 2nd grade and I wanted a Ham Radio for Christmas I ended up getting a windup Radio instead. 

I received my first HAM ticket, when I was attending Fontana High School in 1979.   I got my Novice Call KA6KBC after two tries on the written test.    It was part of the Com Lab Program headed up by Lou Malory (WA6DVK).   Club call was WB6HJJ.   Before leaving High School I upgraded to Advance class.      Since then I also earned by General RadioTelephone Ticket.    While at Chaffey College, Alta Loma, CA - I was a member of the very inactive Electronics Club Station - WA6EKN.      Sorry to say the College does not even have an Electronics Program any more.   Was a member of the Cal Poly Pomona Radio Club - WA6GYI.    Sorry to say that the Club station now seems to in active.

HAM Radio is a great hobby ~ Really had fun with it over the Years.
