First licensed in 1967 as WN8DFQ in Chassell, MI; Changed to WN7NTF after moving to Fort Lewis, Washington in the early 70's, and shortly thereafter upgraded to General Class, WA7NTF. Changed the callsign to W7NTF in 2000. Upgraded to Amateur Extra Class on 18 November, 2001. Changed callsign to K7EK on 9 April, 2005. Attended Wendell B. Laughbon S.H.S. in Dupont, WA until completion in early 1972 and then joined the army. Enlisted for the ASA option and became a O5H, or Morse Code Interceptor. First overseas tour of duty was Can Tho, RVN, in 72/73. Then when the cease fire went into effect, was transferred to the ASA Field Station in Udorn, Thailand for a year. After Thailand, I returned to the USA where I became restless and bored. I asked for more overseas duty and I eventually re-enlisted for Korea. I went on to do four tours there, for a total of ten years. In between the second and third Korea tour I went to Field Station Augsburg, Germany, for three years. I retired from the army on the 1st of March, 1994, having continuously served for 22 years. Some of the other amateur radio callsigns I have held are: HL9TG and DA2XF. QSL's are still available via K7EK for HL9TG contacts.
I am very interested in weak signal VHF/UHF operation, as well as low power operation on all bands/modes. I currently own a 24 hour beacon which is on 28.250 mhz. I solicit reports for my beacon should you happen to hear it. Please give specific details in email, or written communication to my mailing address listed here. Also, please post all beacons received to your local DX cluster node. Thanks!
I run a 24/7/365 DX cluster node running CC Cluster Software. Please give my DX node a try. You can access it via telnet:
W7JD-1: w7jd.ddns.net, PORT 9000 -OR- K7EK-1: k7ek.ddns.net, PORT 9000
CC USER is the mating user application to access these DX nodes. Please get it from http://ve7cc.net. Download the full installation file which is located toward the bottom of the page. Please be aware that any telnet client, including those built into your logging program, may be used to access my DX nodes.
