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 between 2005 and 2012. My primary contribution to the contest efforts of the Voodoo Contest Group is in station design, antenna design and power distribution. In 2013, we moved contest activity to Cyprus (5B4) and operate as P3F in the the CQWW DX CW contest. In 2014, we operated in Kuwait at 9K2HN and set a new Asian continental record in the M/M operating class. We took 2015 off but will be QRV again in 2016 somewhere in South America.
I have been very active on VHF in AZ for over 40 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 1,200 stations in 159 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 and in the Bahamas in 2015 as C6ANS. More portable 2m EME DXpeditions are in the planning stages at this time.
I am a retired Electrical Engineer and previously worked for Motorola, Magnavox and General Dynamics.
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.
