2008: I'm back on the air after a ~30 year hiatus (school, kids, etc). First licensed in 1971 as WN2APO, then WB2APO, in New Providence, NJ. College etc in Atlanta (W4AQL - Georgia Tech), and then to Portland Oregon in 1984.

I live on the west slope of a hill, so my HF6V vertical puts most of its energy out towards the Pacific - 60 miles away (sunset QSL photo, above). CW and contesting are my principal activities. Rig is a Kenwood TS-850 (joined by a K3, in 2012).

Most of my contest activity is now from a ridge outside of Newberg, OR (Yamhill county). Below is a picture of dawn light looking north-northeast from Newberg QTH, towards Mt. Ranier (120 miles) and Mt. St. Helens (70 miles).

2011 - After daydreaming for 40+ years, I finally have a tower and rotatable antennas. Tnx to K7PN, K7ZSD, K7EM, KR7X, W7RR and W7ACD.


How it all began. . . a National NC-183D receiver that OM (soon WN2APR, then WA2APR, then N4GDU, now SK) bought at a Boy Scout auction for SWLing, and his recall of morse code from his Navy days, which led to discovery of local hams, radio club, Elmers, etc.

Serendipity happens . . .
