I was first licensed in 1976 as WN4PSL. I upgraded to Extra and received AA4NC, (one of the first US 2x2 calls) in 1977. I have been interested in contesting my entire ham career, and prefer being on the DX end of the pileup. I've operated from all over using callsigns such as:

I am a part-time DXer (DXCC Honor Roll, 9BDXCC, VUCC - 6 meters) and I enjoy RTTY and chasing grids on 6 and 2 meters as well.

I am a member of PVRC, and am the trustee of the Confederate Contest Club and we use the W4MR callsign occasionally in contests from my QTH. My station is set up for single op and multi-single. I have two towers (120' and 80') on a one acre property. You can find the current configuration at www.conteststations.com.

I find that meeting new friends is one of the best parts of being in the amateur radio fraternity. I have had the pleasure of making friends all over the world who share my fascination with this crazy hobby that affects us "hamaholic mutants". The magic of worldwide communication without wires still holds a fascination for me. I will never forget the many happy hours spent in front of a crappy old radio pulling out weak, watery CW signals from strange lands when I was a kid.

My other hobbies are flying and playing music. I hold a commercial pilot's license and own a Mooney M20J (N3933H). I am currently the guitarist and vocalist for the band, Ventura Highway (www.venturahighwayband.com). I am a member of the Flying Musician's Association. Professionally,  I am an electrical engineer specializing in Telecommunications.

My other hobby is flying. Here is a shot of my airplane in flight...

 

 

Something is always in need of repair. Here it is a 2 element 40 meter beam. I am in the crane basket repairing a blown loading coil...
