Greetings from California !
My QTH is in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains of northern California approximately 160 miles (257 KM) east of San Francisco, CA. I live near the town of Murphys, in Calaveras County. The station elevation is approximately 3500 feet ASL or 1066 meters ASL.

I was planning on traveling with the T32 - 2013 DXpedition group to Kiritimati Island (also known as Christmas Island) for the activation of T32RC in December 2013. Unfortunately, due to a family illness, I am unable to travel this year. I will be providing the website information for T32 - 2013 and also handling information for the team while they are traveling. I am hoping to go with Dean - KW7XX (T32-2013 Advisor / Operator) and the rest of the group on their next DXpedition, tentatively planned for 2014. Please visit the T32 - 2013 website for information about the December 2013 DXpedition.
I obtained my Novice license in 1971 and remain active on all modes on HF in addition to VHF and UHF activity. Please visit my website for more information regarding the station. You can monitor my station receive and transmit audio, when the link is on-line, from the audio menu on the website.
I stream live video from the shack sometimes. If the video is active it can be viewed at K6HP video. This is part of the Cam Radio Group webcam project. You can view all of the amateur radio station webcams involved in the project at CamRadioNet.
I am very proud of my son, Garrett, for deciding to obtain his amateur radio license and subsequently doing so after about one month of studying the manual in between work and family. Garrett works in the computer field and is hoping to add an understanding of RF and radio principles to his expertise. As of Feb. 4, 2012 Garrett passed both his General and Extra exams! Garrett's new call sign is KZ6S.
Former Call Signs: WN6NRD, WB6NRD, N6LZR
