My Mother named me William after my Grandfather and Father, but I've used my middle name David, all of my life.

I prefer to use LoTW and I will QSL 100% direct. If you need my card, send an SAE only with your card and I'll send you mine.

I was first licensed in 1961 as W9CTJ and have held the additional calls of W0IHR, W6MKA, W9MIT, and most recently AJ4FM before getting my original call back on March 8, 2014. My Elmer was Bob Barrett, W9JOZ, a great CW traffic handler and was at the top of the BPL listing for many years.

I retired after 20 years service from the USAF in 1984. I had the privilege of maintaining the HF, VHF and UHF Communications Systems on the SR-71 Blackbird during my last 4 years. I retired at Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona  July 1, 1984. My new QSL card is above, with the Blackbird in full afterburner following an aerial refueling. After my USAF Career I worked as a Communications Engineer, retiring totally in 2005. My other hobbies include photography, shooting sports, F1 & Sports Car Auto Racing and Aviation. I recently had to stop flying for medical reasons, but did acquire over 8600 hours mostly in multi-engine aircraft before the end came to having fun.

I am a member of the ARRL & the RSGB, and I support The DX Code of Conduct, INDXEA and NCDXF. I am usually on SSB or RTTY, mostly on 12M, looking for new DX stations to work.  I was born at North Judson, IN and I'll be celebrating my 72nd birthday in March 2015. Seems like it was just yesterday when I got into this wonderful hobby. How time flies when you're having a great time.

I'm currently using a Yaesu FT-990 (fantastic 1991 radio!) with an upgraded 1969 Heathkit SB-220 Amp. I built and use a K4DSPKit AFSK to FSK interface. The antenna is a Butternut HF-9V vertical, ground mounted with 20 buried 33 foot radials. Ground Elevation is 1020' (310M) ASL and 406' (124) HAAT (Height Above Average Terrain). My location is a blessing for working DX with a vertical!!!

Thanks for reading about me, and I hope to work your station, either again or soon.

Cheers and 73,

David, W9CTJ
