Thanks for viewing my QRZ page. Electronics and computers have been my hobby for many years and after some cohersion from a Telecommunications Technician coworker friend of mine I took the Technician test at RadioFest. Enjoying the many aspects of this wonderful hobby and looking forward to new contacts and experiences. My favorite part is experimenting with different antennas and digital modes so far.
Originally licensed as Technician Class in 2009 at the Naval Postgraduate School RadioFest in Monterey, CA as KI6WPJ.
Upgraded to General Class at RadioFest in 2010, keeping KI6WPJ call.
Upgraded to Amateur Extra Class on January 25, 2012 at Quartzfest 2012 in Quartzsite, Arizona and took next sequential FCC Call available which was AG6IS.
