Licensed since 1992 as KD6QBQ then upgraded to extra a few months later and received my new callsign AB6YO. I then moved to Oregon and became AB7YO. After a very short time in Alaska as AL1V (and Utah), I am now in Washington state as K7MGR.

My elmers were Bill Fleming N6WPG (SK) and Jim McCauley AB6EU (SK). I was heavily involved in local 2-meter packet as well as 2-meter voice. I was also a former member of the Fresno Amateur Radio Club, Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers, and the Tulare County Amateur Radio Club. I ran a local Packet BBS (MSYS) in the San Joaquin Valley that offered NASA bulletins and satellite/shuttle tracking passes for the area. Then the internet took over! I was a net control station for Northern California's 2-meter VHF traffic handling net in the mid-1990s as well as an Official Relay Station. When not doing ham radio, I can be found traveling or going to the symphony/opera. I am also the humble servant of 3 annoying feline creatures that allow me to reside in their house.

QSL Info
>> All HF contacts get an eQSL and LOTW entry automatically <<

I send physical QSL cards to most HF contacts. I will look at your QRZ page to determine how to send you a card. I'm not expecting cards in return if you don't have any, so don't worry if you receive a card from me and don't have one to send back.

>>>> USA stations:
Direct:  No SASE or postage needed!  Send your card to my address listed on QRZ or the FCC database (same).
SKCC Bureau:  If we made contact on CW and exchanged SKCC numbers, I'm good in the bureau!

>>>> DX Stations (including Canada):
Direct: No SASE or postage needed! Send your card to my address listed on QRZ or the FCC database (same).
Bureau: This is a great way to help save on your postage costs, and I will accept and reply to your QSL 100%.
