Hi Rod,
Yes, first call in early high school was KN6LVN. Later I became WA6MCT and a few years ago, W6MCT. Been licensed over 50 years now.

Yes, I have a few stories about my time on the NWP. I don't tell most because some of the parties are still alive.

Welcome to the NWP Network, Bob! Please take a look around and let me know if you have any questions or comments. And please feel free to share any stories you may have about your time as a telegrapher for the NWP -- I'd love to hear them. I'm adding content daily and have just begun recruiting new members, with the hope that we'll have a viable and interesting community on the the network soon. Please feel free to invite your own friends if you think they may be interested. Regards,
