KD0GT/DU7 Bacong, Negros Oriental, Philippines Grid PJ19pq, IOTA OC-129, Zone: CQ 27, ITU 50

ICOM IC-7000 with LDG AT-200Pro Autotuner, G5RV/ZS6BKW, Cushcraft R7 vertical, DK7ZB 2el 15m beam.

 

 

.

First licensed as WN3ZTK in Doylestown, Pennsylvania at age 13 (1954). After moving to

California I upgraded to General and received WB6BED followed by a move to Colorado

where I held WB0IKJ. I then upgraded to Advanced with my present call of KD0GT.

 

My early interest involved pursuing WAS and WAC, both of which were achieved with

relative ease as band conditions were phenomenal during this time period. Amateur satellites

became my next interest after hearing one of our early birds sending HI HI HI and whose code

speed indicated spacecraft temperature. Joined AMSAT, built a computer controlled tracking

system, and spent many enjoyable hours working OSCSR 6, 7, and 8. Working the VHF/UHF

bands led me to weak signal work and achieved VUCC on 432MHz (#127), 2.3GHz (#23)

1296MHz (#41) and 3.4GHz (#14). Also active in VHF/UHF contesting and was Division

Leader (Colorado Section) in the 1986 ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes. EME then became

my passion and built several multi-yagi arrays for 432MHZ and a 4m dish for 1296Mhz. I also

during this time period maintained the “432MHz and Above EME Directory” After I retired

I moved to the Philippines and am presently residing in Bacong, Negros Oriental. My goal now

is working to achieve DXCC using LOTW.

 

The above listed achievements would never have been possible were it not for the many friends

in the hobby that helped me along the way. I thank them for making Ham Radio such an

important part of my life. Special thanks to:
