First licensed in 1978, my dad (K4HJ) fuelled my interest in amateur radio and electronics in general.  I was not on the air very much, due to other interests, so my license expired.  Interest was renewed and in 2006 I took the Technician exam during the ARRL Field Day and was relicensed as KI4QBP.  I was stationed in England, with the U.S. Air Force, at the time and obtained a reciprocal British license and the call sign M0ECD.

I enjoy most aspects of the hobby that I have tried but really enjoy the challenges of contesting and VHF.  I am usually the only operator from Rockwall county, the smallest county in Texas, during the Texas QSO Party, so keep an ear out for K5BGL.

I operate mobile most weekdays, it makes the commute much more tolerable.

Call signs held:

KA4FQR - 1978-1988

KI4QBP - 2006-2008

M0ECD - 2006-2011

KI6YYX - 2008-2011

K5BGL (vanity) - 2012-present

Home setup is an FT-897D feeding an Alpha Delta DX-EE in the attic and an M2 6M3-SS on a 40 ft mast with rotator. 

Mobile setup is an FT-857D feeding an ATAS-120.
