On the Cover

On this month’s cover are the Haleys of Santa Fe, TX. From left are Cody, KB5WYJ, Casey, AB5RG, Cindy, W5CLH and Marty, AB5GU. Marty got his license in 1992, upgraded to Extra in 1993, and his wife Cindy is a Technician licensed since 2006. Their oldest son, Cody, age 25, became a ham at 9 years of age and has twice given speeches at the Dayton Youth in Ham Radio Forum. Casey, age 24, was licensed at 7 and made Extra (and DXCC) at 8, with 20 WPM code. Casey earned a ham radio scholarship to Texas A&M University and is now a biomedical engineer. Wyatt, WY5ATT, not pictured, was licensed at 10 and is now 15. The Haleys love to travel to hamfests and often combine this with camping trips. They often work contests as a multi-op, and built a small ham radio campground where they and their ham friends relax and operate VHF and UHF contests.
