Bio: 

Got my first exposure to radio through AF MARS AIA4MI, while stationed (1976/77) at Mindano, Phillippines.  After coming back to the US in 1977, I got my Novice, KA4DMC in 1978.  My Dad (KA4DUK, SK now) and my brother (KA4DVM) now N4JTP also got their ticket in 1978.  We had a great time. 

I upgraded to Technician in early 1979.  General in late 1979, just before being assigned to Lindsey AS, Germany.  In Germany, was involved in AF MARS as AGA7LI and had a reciprocal license as DA1JO and an individual MARS call but don't remember it anymore.  First Contest was the 1980 ARRL DX PHONE while in Germany.  Upgraded to Advanced in 1981.  Returned to US in 1982.  Was inactive from 1984 to 1991.  Got back to Ham Radio in 1991 and have been active every since.  Upgraded to Extra in 2013.

Mostly enjoy Contesting and Dxing. 

Some of my favorite contests are:  ARRL RTTY RU; ARRL DX; CQ WW and CQ WPX; ARRL NOV SS; ARRL 10m; Alabama, Georgia and Florida QSO Party(s)

Currently have 295 LOTW confirmed DXCC Mixed entities.
