I am a retired electrical engineer from the semiconductor industry. Retired after 30 years in the industry so was involved in the early days of integrated circuits. I graduated from San Jose State University.
I have been licensed since 1967/68 timeframe, first as WN6DIJ and then upgraded shortly afterwards to Advanced Class and call was changed to WA6DIJ and it has been that way ever since. I have no intention of changing my call sign at this late date....hi hi.
During 1979-80-81 I lived and worked in Singapore and had the call sign of 9V1UO and was always involved in a pile-up any time I turned the rig on and called CQ. At the time there were only about 100 hams in Singapore and less than half of those were active so I was considered rare DX to those chasing their DXCC award.
I collect and restore antique radios and have a museum website at www.AntiqueRadioMuseum.org if you would like to look at some of my collection.
