WA3AXV was first licensed in 1964. Licensed with the then relatively new Technician class license (ca. 1951), my test was administered by W3KKN, Ernie (SK), in Willow Grove Pa. WA3AXV joined the Mt. Airy VHF Club (Pack Rats) in 1970. Upgraded to Advanced class in 1978. This time the test was administered by the legendary Joe Welsh of the FCC office in Philadelphia, PA. The vanity call W3RJW (my initials) was obtained in 1997.
