I’m a visually impaired operator originally licensed in New Jersey as N2OEU when the no code license was introduced. Upgraded to a Technician plus after passing my code test at 5, then the 13 wpm in the same session. I moved to North Carolina soon after that and forgot about it. I cleaned out my wallet and found my CSCE for the code and realized I only about six weeks left before it expired.  I studied a few weeks and passed my General while living in North Carolina and took the vanity of W4ADL at that point.  Since I was living in North Carolina I wanted a “4” call.  While living in North Carolina I was heavily involved in all assets of emergency communications with the local ARES/RACES/CERT and especially SKYWARN as a spotter and Net Control operator.   A volunteer firefighter as a Training Officer then Assistant Chief for several years.
