****** I DO NOT QSL******
I was first licensed in 1970 as WH6HHO in Hawaii while on active duty in the US Navy. I soon upgraded to Advanced as KH6HHO. After a 6 year Navy stint, I returned to the mainland and settled in the Seattle area. I was then issued WA7WYY (I think the FCC must have had a grudge against me with those 2 calls). As soon as "incentive licensing" began I upgraded to Extra in 1975 and received my present call of K7MX.I'm going to keep this one as long as they'll let me have it!! I was relatively active in contesting and DX'ing during the 1970's and 80's from 7 land, slowing down my amateur activities starting in the mid-80's as career and family dominated. I worked as an Electrical Engineer following my discharge from the Navy, and moved into Technical Sales and Marketing for a Microelectronics company. The jobs kept me very busy and I travelled the world as Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Interpoint Corporation. Amateur Radio activity suffered during this time. After 25+ years in the technology business world, I decided to slow things down and semi-retired in 2000. I moved to my present QTH in Southwest Florida in 2003 and re-discovered the magic of Amateur Radio. Besides ragchewing and chasing DX, I enjoy designing and building HF antennas. My primary station consists of a Flex Radio 5000A with an Ameritron AL-82 Amplifier. . I just acquired a Flex 1500 QRP rig and have been having lots of fun with this cool little rig Antennas include a semi-homebrew 4 element SteppIR on a motorized 60 foot self-supporting mast for 20 through 6 meters. On 40 and 80 meters I use home-brew vertical antennas. I also operate from my 31 foot Hunter sailboat "Ciboney" with an Icom 706 and a variety of Hamsticks.the salt water makes a great counterpoise!! If you hear me on the air, please stop and say hello. 73 Don K7MX
