First Licensed in 1972 as WN9IVC in Indianapolis, Indiana at age 14. Upgraded to General in 1974 and became WB9IVC. Moved to Louisiana in 1979 and upgraded to Extra class in 1987. On July 8, 1987 received AA5AU. I have operated as VP5/AA5AU, C6A/AA5AU, V2/AA5AU, VP2M/AA5AU, P40RY and HK0/AA5AU (San Andres).
My primary interests are HF and 6 meter DX'ing, RTTY Contesting, JT65 & JT9. I am on the ARRL DXCC Honor Roll for Mixed (#1), CW and RTTY. I have 339 current entities confirmed on CW (need P5) and 339 on RTTY (need BS7). After many years of claiming not to own a microphone, I confirmed #331 on SSB on April 14, 2013 to reach the Phone Honor Roll. I received the prestigous YASME Foundation Excellence Award in 2009 and was elected to the CQ Contest Hall of Fame in 2010. I am a member of the Delta DX Association.
My present antennas are a 3 element SteppIR yagi at 45', a modified 2 element SteppIR at 35', a 40 meter inverted vee and 80 meter inverted vee. I also have a Pixel loop receiving antenna atop the 35' tower.
QSL manager for P40RY in 1992 only. All HK0 and P4 logs have been uploaded to LoTW. Please QSL direct, via eQSL or LoTW. Sorry, but I do not QSL via the Bureau.
73, Don AA5AU
