I was first licensed as WN6FPT in 1962, after being mentored by our ham radio mailman, "Dingo Joe", WA6BNI (now SK). My first rig was a Globe Scout 65-A transmitter and a Hallicrafters SX-111 receiver into a homebrew 40 Meter dipole, and later as General Class licensee, WB6FPT, used a Hallicrafters SR-160, a Collins KWM-2 and a Kenwood TS-140S over the years. I also did VHF/UHF repeater work in the Los Angeles basin on the 144/220/450 MHz bands from 1970s to 1990s.

My current radio is a Yaesu FT-2000D, driving an Ameritron ALS-600 solid state linear when more power is needed. The output is matched using a LDG AT-600 PROII autotuner into a K4KIO five band (20,17, 15, 12, 10m) hex beam at 30 feet, a ZeroFive Antennas HOA 27, 27 foot, 10-40 meter multiband vertical, or a Maple Leaf Antennas QSO King 185 foot longwire on 160-30m. On the digimodes, I use a microHam microKeyer II interface. The dedicated computer for digital is an HP-Compaq 7800, Intel Core 2 Duo, running Windows 7-Pro, 64 bit.

My initial interest in getting back on the low bands in 2004 was 40 Meter CW on the low end of the band in the late evenings/very early mornings Pacific Time. Now, I also do some SSB on either the 80, 40 or 20 Meter bands. More recently in 2012, working towards a WAS award, I became active on the OM International Sideband Society Net on 7.185 MHz, OMISS #8186, as well as on the Triple H Net on 7.190 MHz. As of January 2013, I am now running PSK31 and Olivia digital on 80-10 meters, using HRD-DM780. I am also working digimodes JT65 and JT9 using WSJT-X. I am a member of the Straight Key Century Club, #11762, 30 Meter Digital Group, #6560, and the European Phase Shifting Club, #22159. As of January 2014, I have started dabbling in Domino, MFSK, RTTY, and even back to some CW. As of summer 2014, I am starting to take an interest in contesting.

All contacts are automatically uploaded from HRD to eQSL.cc and HRDLog.net. Normally, I upload to LOTW at the end of my operating day.

My faithful companion, Leia (the Doberwoman), in the radio room frequently during the last months of her life is shown below right. Her love was unconditional; this dog went to heaven.
