 Looking for an old Ham friend from the early 60's that was instrumental in getting me into Ham radio.  I believe his call was K3UVA and his name was Philip Yanack (?).  He lived in Drexel Hill, PA.

Thanks,

John P. Yanak - You have the call correct. Last appeared in the Summer 1969 Callbook.
Looks like he is still living in PA. after doing a google search.

Thanks for the information.  I can not believe he gave up his license in the late 60's.  He was a General in the mid-60's.  He was a good CW operator and was really into Ham Radio.  I spent many afternoon's with him after school working DX on 40/15M with an inverted dipole.  It is funny how some very good operators drop the hobby after only a few years.  I was only an average operator and could only struggle with CW.  Now he is out of the hobby and 50 years later I am still with it and now an Extra.
