A necessary service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Before my fiftieth anniversary of being licensed I emailed the FCC to attempt to find my actual license date; The FCC response was, "I have researched our microfiche records. Unfortunately, the Commissionís historical records that have been retained for the Amateur Radio Service do not predate 1964." A year later I discovered NL7XM through reviews on eHam, and I wrote to Pete. He provided the certified proof of my first licensing very quickly. Pete's service was outstanding, and he readily answered my questions. I recommend NL7XM to anyone trying to locate one's own license information or that of a relative, silent key or someone who has held multiple callsigns. He's better than Google.

Good service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have my Grandfather (W9IRA) station log from April 25 1949 - March 22, 1950. There are other logs held by my extended family I am trying to locate.

W5KLH was my mentor, back in the day.

I could not remember his callsign. NL7XM had my memory served within hours of the request.

Thanks to the QCWA for referring me to him.

He got a four from me because only God gets fives and I could not give 4.98.

Pete "The Greek"s response and service are quick, and not costly. Highly recommended!

Great Service  Time owned: months
I contacted Pete by e-mail looking for my Dad's old call. He was first a novice in the 70's but I couldn't remember his call. Much later he was licensed and was active on the air for about 20 years. Now that he's a silent key, I want to take that old novice call as my own. Pete's response was prompt and I found him a real gentleman to communicate with.

Great  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
NL7XM ("Pete the Greek") provides a great service to the ham community by using his collection of Callbooks to research original license dates.When I was 14 I had a elmer and by the time I was 17 lost all contact and track of him. All I could remember was his call as it was the first call I ever heard K1HNT . I Bought some callbooks from the very early 1970's but he wasn't in them. Pete located his call and got me the info , as well as when my call first appeared. Thanks for the help and a great service.

Great service  Time owned: more than 12 months
I collect old and interesting QSL cards and research the operators. I am comfortable with Google and can find quite a bit about the operators, but I need to know the calls they have had. I have 3 post-WWII Callbooks, which is just not enough to handle the task. I turned to Pete for help. He digs deep and often finds more than I expected. He remembers previous requests and often finds an elusive callsign when looking for something else. Thanks Pete.

Pete was very helpful and friendly in researching an old call.  Time owned: months
Although I have a number of old callbooks from the 30"s, 40's and 50's I needed to research a call that was issued briefly in late 1940 and early 1941. I did not have the callbooks that I required. Pete was able to help me with the information that I've been trying to find for a number of years. He was very friendly and helpful and I would recommend his service to anyone who needs to research an old callsign.

Excellent!   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Four hours is all it took for Pete to locate the information concerning my Novice Ticket. All I can say is... UNBEDAMNEDLEIVABLE!

Many thanks,
