Ham Member Lookups: 77552



In August 2010, I was diagnosed with throat cancer that had spread to lymph nodes on the right side of my neck. I have been going through very aggressive chemotherapy that will be followed by several weeks of a combination treatment of chemotherapy and radiation. While I fully expect to pull though this, I have fallen behind a bit with QSLs and keeping up with friends. I apologize for those delays. This situation obviously is the"ultimate adventure" - staying alive -in keeping with my personal motto “True Adventure Requires An Uncertain Outcome”. 73 / Dennis”

I keep a seperate blog for the cancer story at http://k7bvcancer.blogspot.com/

Late 2011 - post treatment recovery is slow but sure and tests are showing that I am clear of the cancer at this time -- Life is Good! I wish to thank everyone for the thousands of emails, card and especially the prayers. I am very grateful to have so many good friends in Amateur Radio. 73 / Dennis



QTH Update: Completed the move to Turkey, NC FM04xv in April 2012. Now working on antennas and loving the new QTH -- it seems to be fantastic for working DX on all HF bands as well as 6m..

My current amateur radio obsession-of-choice is 6 meters. I ran 1,500 watts to a 4 x 6M7JHV "H" frame array on my hilltop location in New England before moving to Southern California to work for Yaesu. My interests on 6 meters include, DXCC / Grid chasing and digital WSJT weak signal meteor scatter and moonbounce action. I hang out on the ON4KST 50MHz chat site and Ping Jockey (meteor scatter) www.pingjockey.net/cgi-bin/pingtalk/

Licensed in 1962, my richest childhood dreams centered on visiting exotic places far away and running pileups for days. I spent hours and hours listening to Don W9WNV, Gus W4BPD, Martti OH2BH and many others work their piles; all the time dreaming of one day sounding like a smooth running machine myself. I still carry that dream in my heart every day.

A partial list of my previous calls includes WA6WTD WB8FUO WB5QWX KA5CHW N5DKG KZ5M AA7VB. DXpedition experience 4W, 8P, C6, CT3, CY9, D,L G, HI, HS, HK0/s, JA, J6, KH2, KH6, KL7, KP2, KP4, KP5, KP6, OH, OH0, OJ0, P4, PY0F, S5, SV9, T8, TG, TI, V2, V3, V4, V6, VE, VK, VP2E, VP5, VP9, VY1, XE, YB, YV

My travels have also taken me to the following places where I was not able to get on the air for a variety of reasons: 9V BV CT DU FG FM FS HH HK HP KH3 PJ7 PY V7 VR

Pileups of great ops that allow me to run high-rate CW and Phone are my lifeblood. I have been lucky enough to gather some contest certificates and plaques which occupy proud space on my wall including, happily, a number of Top Ten finishes in domestic and international contests.

I am a ARRL Life, Legacy, and, Diamond Club member, past President of the Texas DX Society, and served as Editor of the National Contest Journal for a number of years. After years in the fire protection systems business, I sold my partnership and joined the ARRLin 2002 as Sales and Marketing Manager.  I have been Yaesu's Executive Vice President for North America Sales since September 2006.

In July 2000, I proudly represented the USA and the Society of Midwest Contesters as Ralph K9ZO's teammate in Slovenia at WRTC2000. I was honored to serve as Ambassador-at-Large and as a Referee for WRTC 2002 in Finland.

There are many many operators more talented than I will ever be... BUT probably few who love the hobby more than I do!
