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.

KA4FQR - 1978-1988

KI4QBP - 2006-2008
