Licensed since 1963 and active on all bands from 160 meters through 23 cm.
Principle interests are DXing, contesting, VHF weak signal, EME, antenna design and homebrewing equipment for my flexible station.
In DXing, I am top of the Honor Roll Mixed and Phone.needing only P5 on CW. I have DXCC on 160 through 2 meters and 5BWAZ.
Currently, I conduct most of my competitive contesting as a member of the Voodoo Contest Group where I have traveled to West Africa and have operated as TZ5A, TZ6NS, 3X5A, 9L7NS, 9L5A, 9L5VT, EL2A and EL2ES during the past seven years. My primary contribution to the contest efforts of the Voodoo Contest Group is in station design, antenna design and power distribution. In 2013, we will move contest activity to Cyprus (5B4) and operate as P3F in the the CQWW DX CW contest.
I have been very active on VHF in AZ for over 35 years and have worked DXCC and Worked All States on 2 and 6 meters.
I have been active on 2 meter EME since 1989. I have contacted over 1,000 stations in 135 countries on EME using a homebrew antenna system, preamp, and power amplifier. I have also operated EME while portable in West Africa using the calls TZ6NS and 3X5A. Future trips to other West African countries are planned for the next few years. I am also active on 6m and 70 cm EME using my horizon-only antennas.
In addition to being a "professional" amatuer radio operator, I am an Electrical Engineer and work for General Dynamics in Scottsdale, AZ. I currently am leading a group of RF engineers in the design, deployment and testing of a nation-wide VHF/UHF communication system for the US Coast Guard.
I reply to all direct QSLs. I upload all my logs to LoTW for all USA and DX operations. If you want a card via the buro, simply email me with log info and I will send it in the next outgoing batch.
