Hello all…

I was originally licensed as WN2DZZ in 1962. My first rig was a DX20 and Lafayette HE30 receiver tied to a 40 meter dipole… It never worked quite right as the coax was 5 feet short and finished with bell wire. I sure wish I had an Elmer! 

General ticket, big rig upgrade to a Drake 2B, Eico 720, VFO  and a 20M dipole followed. A whole new world of DX. 13 years old and talking to Russia. Wow!  By chance, I discover I can get out on 80M, play in traffic nets and get into the CD parties. A great way to get into contests and I am hooked.

K2EK call comes in 1976 soon followed by a great hilltop QTH in ENY.  More contests.  Doing well lands some guest operator invites. Real treats are  W2PV, K2GL (aka N2AA). K2TR, K5NA, W1BB, PJ1B and KP2A.  My job moved me to sunny Florida, which I love after getting used to heat and wildlife. 

My primary radio interests are in DXing and contests. Favorite bands are 160, 80 and 6. Other interests are target shooting, SCUBA diving and motorcycles. A Harley Low Rider and ElectraGlide  have taken me safely to 48 states and VE7 through VE2.

I answer QSLs 100%. SASEs are welcome, but not required.   I usually run way behind on bureau cards.  Be patient!
