My prior call signs include WN8CSF/WA8CSF (early-1960s to 1972) and WB0IVJ (1972 to mid-1970s).

In the mid-1970s, the FCC allowed extra class amateurs to select 1x2 call signs (before vanity calls were permitted) and since I was living in Kansas City at the time, it seemed like an attractive call sign for someone living in that area, and most importantly, it was available! I have maintained this call sign despite subsequent moves to Arizona, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and back to Ohio; I have no plans to ever change it.

My primary amateur radio interests are Software-Defined Radio (SDR), CW, the digital modes (primarily JT65, JT9, and PSK31), and IRLP.

In recent years, I have operated mostly via the digital modes JT65 and JT9 which has allowed me to complete over 8000 stateside and DX contacts with low power and indoor antennas in the attic above the garage (which is the current location of my antenna farm which consists of a one meter diameter 40 meter to 15 meter loop, three dipoles, a square loop for 6 meters and a vertical for 2 meters and 70 centimeters).

I have an 8-Band WAS certificate, 34 states confirmed on 160 meters, WPX, and contacts with at least 97 DXCC entities, all using JT65 and the antenna setup described above. I also have a WAS certificate for 20 meter JT9.

Please visit my amateur radio web page for additional information on my activities and equipment:


You may contact me via email at: k0kc@arrl.net or Ed@k0kc.us.

Please QSL via LOTW (I upload daily), but if you want a card, I will gladly send one to you if you include an SASE. I normally upload to eQSL once each month.
