I go by Doug, a short version of my middle name. I hold an Amateur Extra Class License and have been an avid DXer and contester since 1998. I enjoy SSB, CW, RTTY, and PSK31.

I live on a city lot that is only about 1/3 of an acre and it has been a big challenge to be successful in contests and DXCC. As of February 2015 I have 309 confirmed countries (312 worked) and 8BDXCC(10/12/15/17/20/30/40/80 meters). Hopefully 160 meters won't take too much longer.

My 16 year old son, Garner, KK4CLY, has earned DXCC (252) on SSB (190), CW (224), RTTY (137), 10, 12, 15, 17, 20 and 30M. Garner was invited to speak at the 2014 Dayton Hamvention Youth Forum on "How Dx'ing Can Increase Your Knowledge of the World.

I enjoy homebrewing as much as possible to help keep up my electronics skills. I also help my local club, the Alamance Amateur Radio Club, K4EG, by teaching Technician and General classes and serving as an ARRL Volunteer Examiner and a NC Section Technical Specialist. Hopefully we will meet on the bands one day.

73,

Doug

Please be sure you have my call correct. It is KF4VTT/VP9. Some stations logged me at VP9/KF4VTT and this is wrong. Sorry, after January 22, 2012 I will need $2USD for QSL reply to DX because of postage increase.
