I was first licensed in 1971 as WN5FMK in my hometown of Alma, Arkansas.

My first rig was a Heath HW-16 limited to 75 watts input and was crystal controlled.

My Grandfather was K5VRC (SK) and first Elmer.


Active HF Mobile operator. Mostly CW. Kenwood TS-480HX, a Hi-Q screwdriver antenna, and a Kent TP-1 paddle for CW. Look for me most weekdays during commute times and occasionally on 17, 20 or 30 CW during the daytime.


The black and white photo below was from one of my earliest Field Days, probably around 1974. .


Current Antennas: ASL-2010 LPA / 160M Inv.Vee





Other interests include playing musical instruments, digital photography, and riding motorcycles. Lots of great riding in the Ozarks! Got the motorcycle bug from my dad early on. That's me at around age 2 with Dad on his Indian.
