I started in the Amateur Radio hobby back in 1989 while severing with the Marine Corps at the Naval Air Station Willow Grove, PA and was originally assigned the call of KA3WLV. After retiring from my military service, I returned back to school and started a whole new career. This left little time for the hobby. I never wanted to have to take the morse code test again, so I kept my ham ticket active. I stayed with my Technician Plus license for nearly 29 years.
In march of 2021, a call came out from my town Fire Chief to all Amateurs to assist with communications for COVID 19 response. This sparked my interest, and I contacted a local Amateur Radio club (www.w1op.com). They inspired me to take my General Exam in June and my Extra Exam in December of 2021. I have been fully active since, and am really enjoying this hobby. On Feb 23rd, 2022 I was granted the new callsign of N1ET.

If you do decide to send a photo of your own or your current card, please be sure to name it with your callsign. If it is easier on you, then provide a weblink to an image you like, and I will attempt to download, resize and clean up for use. Keep copyright in mind.
