>He was first licensed in 1972 as WN8NCL.  Norris is a third generation

>U.S. facility.
>Norris' YI9A license was issued in a joint effort by U.S. military
>authorities and lcoal Iraqi authorities.  His operation in early April
>from one of former Iraq President "Saddam Hussein's officer's chow
>halls" was short due to military restrains and job commitments and the
>fact that he didn't want to become a target for the U.S. military who
>were attacking suspicious radio broadcasts.  "Besides it was hard to
>hold a mike in one hand and an M-16 in the other." he said.  Because of
>military restrictions Norris could not give his exact QTH in Iraq, but
>he added "because every soldier carried a radio" the noise level was 20
>over 9 at his location.  Norris will return to Iraq in mid July, again
>because of military restrictions he cannot give the exact date, but "I
>should be able to operate for a lot longer." he said, and from at least
>two different locations within the country.
>The limited number of tickets ($35 each) that remain for the luncheon
>will be available at both Ham Com registration in the lobby of the
>Arlington Convention Center and at the LSDXA booth.
