I've been active continuously since I was first licensed in 1962 and have been involved in many aspects of amateur radio. However, my passions have been DX'ing, contesting, and most of all, DXpeditions. My next DXpedition will be to Amsterdam Island (FT5ZM) scheduled for January and February of 2014. For more information, please visit our website at: www.amsterdamdx.org Below are photos from some of my other DXpeditions. Enjoy!

My last DXpedition was with the HK0NA team to Malpelo; a steep, rugged rock rising 900 feet above the sea. That trip netted over 195,000 QSO's.
Just prior to HK0NA I visited Bhutan in the fall of 2011 and operated as A52IR.
Earlier that year I was with the VP8ORK group on the South Orkneys.
I had the unique opportunity to join a group activating a new country in 2010. We operated from Saba Island (left) with the call of PJ6A. Desecheo had been inactive for a long time (right). I was fortunate to be a member of the K5D team that put the island on the air in 2009.
The island of Peter the First has to be one of the most unique places on earth. It's isolated, majestic, and can turn from a beautiful and pristine scene to a very hostile environment within minutes. I have been fortunate to visit this island twice; in 1994 (left) and again inn 2006 (right).
I've also visited Southern Thule Island in the South Sandwich chain (left) and the island of South Georgia (right) on two occassions. I operated as VP8SSI and VP8THU from South Sandwich and VP8CBA and VP8GEO from South Georgia. South Georgia is a beautiful place --- South Sandwich, not so much.
Finally, there was a trip to Easter Island in 2005; XR0Y.
See you from FT5ZM!
