Amateur Radio Station WY4X

Fort Valley, Peach County Georgia EM82bn

I am retired from the Department of Defense,   in my last position I managed the Air Traffic Control Systems for Air Force Reserve Command Headquarters.  Now happily retired I operate phone,  CW and the digital modes on HF as well as the amateur satellites,   DSTAR and DMR.    I QSL via the LOTW but also enjoy exchanging QSL cards from other hams as well as short wave listeners.    As much as I appreciate solid state technology and today's micro components I also love boat anchors and the glow of tubes so I take great pleasure in operating radios from the 1950's, 60's and 70's.

My #'s for the CW clubs are NAQCC: 0112, SKCC: 9949, Flying Pig: 3815
