- If anyone is interested in controlling a net, please let me know! I can set you up to run the net similarly to how David is tonight where I do all the back end data entry and all you need to do is concentrate on the script and the flow of the net.

Gerald Golub (W5VUI)
- My vanity call is/was my grandfather’s call sign.
Bill Rose (K5WTR)
- WTR: My initials. My original call suffix was SCC and everyone heard “FCC”, so I decided to get my vanity.
Mike Wisby (KA5HIA)
- 2 sisters ages 7 & 9 at tested with me.. I got my Novice License but let it expired.. Retested with w5bcs. Got tech and General but FCC gave me some KE5??? call that I cant remember. I couldnt stand it and got my original call as a vanity.
- w5bcs has supported NA5DB Battleship of Texas club. The ship is closed and have been removing a lot of equipment to do repair work. Once finished, it will end up at another port on TX coast. TX allocated $35M to it’s restoration but it will take more like $115M. Taking bids from ports
Terry Field (KM5TDF)
Passed tech test at field day this year. Wanted something with my initials. Kept the “Five” call for location.
