Duncan is a Radio Service Technician for the U.S. Forest Service serving the Cleveland National Forest in Southern California. He and his YL, Carolyn (KF6JVF) live in Julian, CA. Duncan can be found on the HF bands in the evenings. His antennas are a Hustler 6 BTV vertical and a short G5RV wire antenna. For power he runs at 200 watts PEP and 400 watts CW.

Duncan is a retired Chief Electronics Technician from the U.S. Navy, an active member of the several Amatuer Radio Clubs, and former President for the Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon (1999). Because Duncan's service area covers several hundred miles of national forest land, You can keep track of his location by visiting map.findu.com/kf6ila-12. He manages two weather stations, KF6ILA which is at his QTH and KF6ILA-10 which is on High Point Fire lookout on Palomar Mountain.

A note on my QSL policy. I QSL direct 100% for first time contacts per band.  For DX I send my card with 2 "Green Stamps" (Dollar Bills) and SAE (Self Addressed Envelope) enclosed. For domestic, I include a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope). For Canadian, I toss in a couple of "Green Stamps" because I know that your postage is $1.05.  I will change this (add more "Green Stamps" or oversize return envelopes) if I catch special instructions on the QSL line of QRZ. An example is "See below for QSL info" in which I will go to QRZ and look. If there are no special remarks in the QSL line, you will receive my envelope and contents per above.   If you have received my QSL card with insufficient postage, drop me a e-mail and I will get you what you need.

The exception to the above policy is for contests.  My policy for contests is that if I receive a contact number less that 20 (for instance 59 16), I will QSL you. (again first time per band). If the number is above 20 by the time I have worked you, I figure that you have enough QSL cards already, so one more gathering dust will make no difference to you.  In this case of the less than 20 contacts, these are the operators who is doing me a favor by working me and giving me some additional points for the contest.  I would like to thank these operators and encourage them to continue to do so.

Now a note to the "Grammar Police". You are about as helpful as the Frequency police on DX... you know the ones, who keep shouting "UP UP UP" , at 60 over S9 while the DX station is calling at S2, oh especially when they start a "conversation" about the offending station over the top of the DX station. I really don't care how may mis-spellings, non-explained acronyms or grammatical errors I may have. If it bothers you, tough.
