I was licensed in 1969 while in high school in Fort Dodge, IA. My original call was WNØZSF, upgraded to General in 1970 as WAØZSF and Extra in 1980 as KNØD. I applied for my KØPC call when the vanity call program opened in 1996. My interest in amateur radio began when Dr. Paul Kersten, WØWIT (SK), donated some of his equipment to my high school.
These days my interests tend to CW contests and DXing. I am currently serving as secretary/treasurer of the Twin City DX Association and webmaster of the Minnesota Wireless Association and the TCDXA. Since 2004 I have operated mobile in state QSO parties in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, and Nebraska.
QSL via LOTW or Direct. All of my QSOs back to my Novice days are loaded on LOTW.
Operated the 2013 Wisconsin QSO Party as W9DND/m on March 10th. We had 937 QSOs and 72 mults for a score of 219,273. Rates were over 120/hr for then entire seven hour event.
