Hello! Welcome to my QRZ page.

My interest in radio began at the age of 10 (a long time ago!) when my parents gave me a crystal radio kit for Christmas. My mother and I assembled it on the kitchen table. My dad strung the antenna for me. While I could only receive one station, my interest in radio and electronics was sparked.

I then became interested in Shortwave Listening. My mother bought me an old floor model tube radio that I managed to repair. I spent many days and nights listening to SW broadcast stations. What a thrill to receive a new country on that old radio!

This all led me to a career in the electronics field, where I have worked as an Electronics Technician and Electronics Teacher. I currently work as a Network Administrator for a company here in South Carolina.

I received my ham license in 1986, while living in Ohio, and have been licensed as KA8YYZ ever since. My primary interest in Ham Radio is DX'ing, but I also like to build antennas, radios, and other electronic projects. I currently have over 300 confirmed for DXCC, and am a Life Member of the ARRL.

My other hobbies include woodworking and Radio Control Model aircraft. I enjoy building and flying planes of all sizes. My favorite is giant scale, especially warbirds from WWI and WWII.

I am a member of the Carolina DX Associaton. I am also a Volunteer Examiner.

If you would like a QSL, I will QSL direct (no SASE required), via the buro, or through Logbook of the World. My QSL card shows a Nieuport 17 with an 80 inch wingspan. I built the plane to honor the men of the Lafayette Escadrille. I lost it in a crash in 2010, but version two is being built right now.

If you hear me on the air, I hope you will say hello!
