Tom Hammond N0SS was first licensed in 1958 as KN0RPH. Upgraded to the Conditional license Tom was 14 yrs old and couldn't drive to the FCC examining station in KCMO at the time within the year and held K0RPH until 1976. Tom upgraded through General, Advanced and Extra Class in 1976 and applied for and received N0SS the same year. His XYL, Jeri, has been licensed since about 1970 and has held WB0HWL, N0IJY, and currently his old call, K0RPH. Tom enjoys contesting when time permits and and operates 99% CW, though he will switch to SSB if someone really needs a SSB QSO he also enjoys designing and building ham related 'stuff' mostly small projects he reports nothing to shout home about and some actually work! Since the end of 1998, Tom has been a Field Tester for Elecraft, out in Aptos CA which makes the great KX1, K1, K2, and K3 HF transceiver kits, and other accessories as well. Tom continues to enjoy his relationship with Elecraft and he has enjoyed seeing them prosper in the Amateur Radio ranks. Tom hopes everyone has found as much enjoyment in the hobby of Amateur Radio as Tom has.
