My first logged contact as a general class ham was 1/12/2002 on 17 meters with Ben, K8DIT in Bellingham, Wa. I was very much interested in radio as a young teenager but learning the code was too big an obstacle for me. I didn't have a cw elmer then, so I never could earn my license. Years later, W6VLM (sk) became my cw elmer and I joined the ranks. Oh, and btw, I am a proud NO CODE extra!!
I've become involved in a wide variety of ham radio activities. I particularly enjoy operating portable and my website is filled with my many operations. I've made many qsl cards from these operations and these are all shown here. I have many more.
I have been involved in 2 dxpeditions: K7C Kure Atoll and TX5C Clipperton Atoll.
With K7C, I ran the website, downlink and internet portions of DXA. The DXA application that Bob, KK6EK envisioned, was the first time anyone provided real time display of the dxpedition log. Over a two week period, DXA was viewed more than 40 million times by hams and non hams all over the world. You can visit that dxpedition at cordell.org.
In 2008, I was a member of the TX5C Clipperton Atoll Dxpedition. The image to the right shows our ssb tent and vertical antenna field at sunset. And the picture up top is me on Clipperton in front of my tent and crab fence. If you made a qso with me on ssb, send me your qsl card for this special TX5C/K6SGH qsl card (not good for dxcc). My website has my TX5C contact log where you can search for your callsign.
Then I operated from the lowest point in the western hemisphere: The Devil's Golf Course, Death Valley Ca. And of course there are two Nojoqui Tarantula Migration Dxpedition, CQ Diablo and two Route 66 On the Air special events. All the various qsl cards are shown below. Clicking on any of them will open a new window and take you to my website to learn more about that operation.
I also run the MoxonAntennaProject.com website. The Moxon Project website was founded by my good friend John, KD6WD (sk) whose elmering continues to motivate hams around the world. That website has contributors world wide from dozens of countries.
Hopefully, one day, our sun will decide to generate some more spots and the bands will be full of voices again. Until then, I'll try to generate more than my share of rf.
