Welcome to my Web site!
Hello, my name is Roy Jolly and I reside in Pleasant Lake, Indiana. I was assigned the callsign of WW6Q by the FCC in the early 80's. I was first licensed as KB6KOS in 1981. Being a technically minded person with a passion and a knack for the code, I quickly worked my way to amateur extra class within the first year. I watched a lot of my fellow hams grit their teeth though that 20wpm code test.
I've been fascinated with radio and electronics since I was a kid. At 10 yrs old I was stringing up long wires to my parents old floor model Philco shortwave radio in search of that elusive DX.
I've been a ham since 1981 and have worked mostly CW and Packet in the
80's and early 90's. I've worked every county in the country and well
over 200 countries just on 80 cw.
When I get a little more time to work on the website, I'll put more of my info here. Be patient, it's been more than 15 years since I've looked at any HTML code.
