I spotted this one at a steakhouse/saloon in Eden NC last night. Interesting.

W4YQY Lookups: 3044

EDEN NC 27288

Welcome all. First licensed in 1970 as WA4FVX. From the time I was of a very young age, I had a built in 'Elmer', my Dad, Clyde Williams Sr. (SK) Dad was first licensed back in 1947 and held two station call signs, W4YQY and W4BJF. In the late 70's at renewal time, he lost the W4YQY due to rule changes and at that time was unable to get it back. About 2 years ago I noticed that W4YQY was open so I applied and received it to get it back in the family. I am currently licensed as an Extra Class, member of ARRL, ARRL VEC/VE and a member of the Rockingham County Amateur Radio Club. Enjoy building antennas, building repeaters, working DX, and also computers. Current HF rigs consist of an Icom 706MkIIG and an Icom IC-701. Living in a Condo with strong antenna restrictions that simply state NO ANTENNAS, I am forced to do what a Ham must do. I use the Condo's gutter system as a 'long wire' (approx 700') with an MFJ Tuner!! Just hard to understand why they say NO ANTENNAS and then they furnish me with one...hi hi Also have a variety of VHF and UHF rigs for local Repeater work. Self employed in the computer design/repair business and maintain several websites. Check back soon as I hope to have our new Club Web Page listed on here soon! 73s Rockingham County Amateur Radio Club Website
Peace will not be found at a MidEast table. Peace began at a MidEast STABLE, but everyone seems to deny it.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
Believing in evolution is like expecting a tornado to go through a junkyard and create a Mercedes Benz on its way out!
If you don't stand behind our US troops, then please feel free to stand in front of them. Yea, that's what I thought..........
