I was first licensed in high school in 1969 as WB8ESK. Later in 1976, I received my Amateur Extra and was able to obtain the vanity call K8JH.
Born and raised in Michigan USA on a potato farm. I have worked for several years in Catholic parish and school administration. More recently I have moved into higher education administration first at a community college in Arkansas and now at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI.
I have long been a fan of CW and DX in particular. More recently I have become interested in digital modes, particularly PSK-31.
I am a member of 10-10, QCWA and a life member of ARRL.
