    "Visualizing Microwaves" by W1GHZ. (Pretty sure he picked that callsign). :)

    Or he was just "born to work microwaves" and spent his life fulfilling what was predestined for him ... :rolleyes:;)

    Nah, he picked it.

    Paul and I attended the same high school in Springfield, NJ. He was originally a "2" call back in the mid-60s, I'm trying to remember what it was; might have been WA2QHL, that one rings a bell but I'm not sure if it was Paul or not.

    It's been a long time!

    Yep, that's it!

    He's 4 years older than I am and graduated HS with my older brother, but I knew Paul because we were in CD/RACES together -- plus, he lived around the corner.

    He's had a few calls over the years, but ZZF was his NJ callsign.

    How did you know that?:)

    Would have been cool if his call had been WA2ZZTOP. :D

    No long beard; it wouldn't have worked.
