WD0BQY

My Ham Radio Interests
First licensed late in 1977 (Novice) an was issued the call WDØBQY. 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 NØCKB.

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 (KBØINN) and he said he is talking to a friend of mine, and 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.

Like to operate PSK, RTTY, and SSTV most of the time. I call the North Dakota Data net (Freq 3.937) on occasion as a fill in Monday Through Saturday evenings at 6:30 Central Time.


Equipment
Kenwood Ts-570S HF/6 Meter transceiver, Kenwood TS-830s Transceiver, ICOM 7000 HF/6/VHF/UUF meter transceiver, Swan 500CX and soon Swan 700CX. Ameritron AL-811H Amp. Antennas are a 80 meter dipole and the a 43' vertical antenna. On 20 meters I use a converted 11 meter vertical cut now for 20 meters. Plus a TR-3 3 element Beam. For 6 meters a 3 element beam. Other odds an ends to fill the shack.
