Ham Member Lookups: 39744

 

I have been a ham since 1970. I got my novice call, WN0CQJ, after passing the test under the guidance of Joe Fair WA0PXF who is now an SK. My first experience in contesting was field day of 1971, where I had a blast working the graveyard shift on 75 meter phone with my buddies Ethan, WB0APG and Steve, WA0ZWA.

I used to be more of a DXer, and am top of the honor roll mixed and SSB. Still need P5 on CW, and a handful of countries on RTTY. I participated in my first DXpedition as part of the AH1A Howland Island crew in 1993. Later that year, I got the chance to mix business with hamming as I trained engineers on the use of mining software in Ghana. I was there for 8 weeks, and made almost 19,000 contacts as 9G1XA using an R-7 vertical and special 80/160 vertical designed by K9AY. Average amount of sleep was about 4 hours per day!

Other Dxpeditions were CE0Z, Juan Fernandez, in 1995. K7K and K4M (Kure and Midway) in 1997.

I am now more of a contester than a DXer. My favorite contests are sweepstakes, CQWW CW,  NA QSO parties, and CW sprints. I enjoy weekly sprint practice on Thursday nights in the NCCC half-hour sprints.

In youger days, I was a strong side hitter on one of the best amateur six man volleyball teams in Colorado. I also played quite a bit of 2-man beach volleyball. I've also been lead singer and rhythm guitar player in a short lived career as a musician.

My 18 year old son, Thomas, is the real musician in the family (ThomasRM.COM). He will be attending Berkley school of music in Boston next fall.

My wife if very active in Retreiver Rescue of Colorado, a non-profit group that rescues all kinds of retriever breeds and matches them to new homes. We currently have three dogs that we personally adopted: Remy, Rowdy, and Toby.

Current station consists of two K-3's, Alpha and QRO amps using N1MM software in SO2R configuration. Antennas are 3 el 40M/6el 20M at 120 feet, 6 el 15M at 60 feet, 6 el 10M at 65 feet, and 3 el WARC tribander at 45 feet on one tower. There is also a 1/4 wave sloper for 160M and 4 element K3LR array for 80M on this tower.

The second tower has a stack of KT34XA's at 30/60/90 feet, plus a 2 el shorty forty at 100 feet and 7 el 6 meter yagi at 95 feet. For Rx on lowbands, I have 3 different bi-directional beverages.

See you in the next contest!
