First licenced as a novice WN1IJY in 1956, Windsor, Connecticut. Worked up through Conditional to General as W1IJY. In 1969 moved to California, upgraded to Extra and updated to W6LYR. In 1976 moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico and updated to K5JK. In 1981 moved to Boulder, Colorado and stayed with K5JK to end the call sign "flip-flopping".

HF rigs are a Ten Tec Corsair (sentimental favorite) and an Elecraft K3. Accessories for the K3 are a Pan adapter, 500 watt amplifier, and a 500 watt auto tuner. A Palstar AT2K provides backup antenna tuning capability. QRP operation uses an Oak Hills Research single band (20 meters) transceiver. Home brew solid state linear amps of 70 w and 140 w give the QRP exciter a boost when needed. Two meter and 70 centimeter operation is provided by Yaesu and Alinco transceivers.

The small yard and close-in house limit the HF antenna farm to a N-S aligned G5 Junior (40 - 10 m), an E-W aligned "inverted-V" G5 Junior, a 26 ft capacity top-hatted vertical (40-10 m), and a 40 m horizontally polarized rectangular loop. For 6 meter operation, there is a homebrew Moxon array. Ground plane, colinear and J-pole antennas round out the farm for VHF operation.
