Thanks to the help of my Elmer, Dale, W0EZT (now AG4Y), I obtained my novice license while in high school, obtaining the call WN0HAW. Within a year, I passed the General test & my call became W0HAW.

While in college in Illinois, I obtained a second call K9EWB. I was chief operator of the cfub stationK9BJV.

I graduated from the University of Kansas (B.S.E.E.) & moved to Southern CA, obtaining the call WA6ORJ. I passed the Extra Class exam in 1977 at the San Diego FCC office. Immediately after passing the test, I turned in a list of preferred calls & was given the first one on my list: AA6EE. The AA block of calls was just being opened up. This was before he FCC set up the vanity call system.

Special calls & DXpeditions:

  • Operated AA6EE/VE7 while on vacation in BC Canada in August 1979.
  •  
  • AA23EE & AA84EE was used during the 23rd Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles July 26 –August 12, 1984. Over 500 QSOs were made with these special event calls.
  •  
  • XE2GCK was used in a DXpedition to Ensenada, Mexico for the CQ WW DX CW Contest in Nobember 1988. To obtain a Mexican license, I drove to Tijuana to the Mexican communications office to apply for a license. I received my license with the call XE2GCK in a few weeks from Mexicali, Mexico.
  •  
  • XE2/AA6EE was used in a second DXpedition to Ensenada, Mexico for the CQ WW DX CW Contest in Novembr1989.
  •  
  • Operated at the QTH of XE2GVin Baja California, Mexico in the CQ WW DX SSB Contest in October 1994. The call 6E2Z was used for this multi-multi operation.

The pictures below were taken in June 2012 & show my son & me installing two new HyGain beams: 20M 4L monobander & a HyGain 10/15M duobander. The tower is a TriEx 71 ft. 4-section crank up. We used a 40' boom-lift to speed up the installation of the beams. We were assisted by Don, KF6AUP.

My xcvr is a Yaesu FT-1000MP. I have an amplifier, but have not used it since 1994.
