First licensed in 1963 as KN3YGU, I spent my novice year on 40m CW working on WAS. I became interested in DXing and homebrewing early on. During my first years as a general class op, K3YGU accumulated about 150 DXCC countries. School and work kept my activity fairly low for a while, but I did manage to stay active. I earned my extra class ticket in 1977, choosing to keep my old call. From about 1979-83 I enjoyed mobile CW DXing, adding a new country from time to time.

Moving to my present QTH in 1986 made it possible to have decent antennas. I put up a 120 ft. tower in 87/88, probably the best money I ever spent. It has been a lot of fun! During the following decade, I managed to earn 5BDXCC, 160DXCC, and Honor Roll. I started DXing on the WARC bands in 94, and RTTY DXing in 98. These have helped keep the hobby interesting since I still need a lot of countries on 30, 17, 12, and RTTY. I enjoy participating in Toplist, which tracks my 9-band HF DX progress, and many of the DXCC awards programs.

Because K3YGU has been a difficult call for DXing, I got my new call K3KY under the vanity calls program in 96. It certainly makes life a lot easier in day-to-day DXing. I work all bands 160-10m, CW, phone, and RTTY. I am a member of Potomac Valley Radio Club (PVRC).

Please check out my web page devoted to HF DXing- fellow DXers may be especially interested in the pages about low band antennas. 73, David K3KY http://www.angelfire.com/md/k3ky/index.html
