In 2008 I returned to 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.

My principal activity is contesting, which I do from a ridgetop QTH outside Newberg, OR (Yamhill county).  A highlight was winning the 2013 SSB November Sweepstakes low power plaque.  My rig is a K3, sometimes paired with a TS-850 for SO2R.

Below is a picture of dawn light looking north-northeast from Newberg QTH, towards Mt. Ranier (120 miles) and Mt. St. Helens (70 miles), with Europe beyond,

After daydreaming for 40+ years, I finally put up a tower and rotatable antennas in 2011. 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 . . .
