I worked for RCA and General Electric for 15 years as an electronic technician, specializing in audio and video circuitry. I made the transition to Information Technology around the time the San Francisco Forty Niners won their 5th Super bowl. Since that time, I’ve enjoyed employment with Sonoma State University and currently with a nearby County government.

I was born and raised in San Rafael, Ca… a Marin County Native. I was first licensed at age 14 as WN6IKQ in 1974. I enjoy DXing and contesting, mainly CW, but will plug in the Mic once in awhile. My current QTH is in the beautiful Sonoma County Wine country.

My home station consists of an ICOM IC-7700 and an Elecraft K3, I won the IC-7700 as the grand prize winner at the 2009 Visalia International DX convention. How sweet is that??!! I have an old SB200 amp, which I rarely use. Antennas at the moment are a F-12 C3 at 50’ and a multi band trapped dipole. I just purchased a Steppir DB18E and hope to get it in the air by Summer 2013. I also have a TS-570D at our cabin on the West shore of Lake Tahoe.

I work a lot DX while mobile.Currently, (as of 6/1/13) I have 111 countries from my mobile rig. I operate mobile on my way to and from work. It's a 30 mile drive, which can take up to an hour each way. I'm usually on between 1500Z-1700Z during the morning commute and 0000Z - 0200Z during the evening commute. 

My mobile rig consists of an Icom IC-7000 in the truck with an AH-4 auto-tuner and a 8' stainless steel whip antenna, output is 100W. I purchased this mobile system, along with a SCS PACTOR III modem in 2002 when I sailed a Cal 36' (36' sailboat) from San Francisco to Hawaii. The system worked flawlessly across the Pacific Ocean. I loaded the boats backstay and with the ocean as our counterpoise I enjoyed DXing, maritime mobile net check-ins and Sailmail (PACTOR) for the crew of 3. I was in my element :I was fishing, sailing, and I had my ham radio! I didn’t realize the uplifting effect it had on the crew when I would yell, “Mail Call!” An experience of a lifetime...

Clubs:

  • President and Contest Chairman for the Redwood Empire DX Association.
    • WWW.REDXA.COM
  • Northern California Contest Club – KB
  • ARRL

When I’m not DXing and contesting… I enjoy cycling, mountain biking, skiing, cooking, wine making, sailing, bass guitar in a couple bands, flyfishing and gardening.

QSL VIA LOTW, BUREAU or DIRECT. I work many stations per year contesting. I’d appreciate it if you can include an SASE or SUFFICIENT POSTAGE/IRC/or GREENSTAMPS if you wish to QSL. LOTW is preferred. This info is also good for my former call WA6IKQ. All QSL’s 100%...

All Plumas County K6JS CQP logs have been uploaded to LOTW.
