Aloha to all from Ewa Beach, Hawaii !

( SKYPE: kh6sat )

Now on D-STAR     (WH6DIG-C Repeater)


   Now Uploading to


Aloha! My name is Rick. I am originally from Quincy, Illinois. I left Quincy in February of 1974 to begin my career in the Air Force. I was first licensed in 1978 as WD9IRI while stationed at Grissom AFB, Indiana. In 1980 I moved to Hawaii and became licensed as WH6AMX. I was an avid satellite operator from 1981 until about 1997. From 1994 to 1997 I was operating an automated Satellite Gateway station from Satellite Beach, Florida, using the PACSAT satellites. From that point I moved to Valdosta, Georgia and left amateur radio. In March of 2000, I retired from the U.S. Air Force. In my 26 years of service, I worked as an airborne communications systems operator, instructor and flight examiner. I worked on several aircraft including the JC-130 supporting Project Corona, EC-135 aircraft supporting the Worldwide Airborne Command Post system, and the HC-130 Search and Rescue aircraft. After retiring, I moved back to Hawaii and changed my callsign to KH6SAT. I became active in amateur radio again In August of 2010, operating local VHF, UHF as well as the HF bands. I can be found on 10 meters through 80 meters operating digital modes (especially JT65 and now JT9). I love the digital modes and look forward to exploring them all.

I QSL 100%. I automatically QSL using LoTW and eQSL(AG). I will also gladly QSL direct if you would like. I always enjoy receiving "hard cards." I would ask those who confirm via eQSL to also confirm the QSO via ARRL's Logbook of the World (LoTW) program. Since ARRL does not recognize eQSLs for award purposes, a confimation through LoTW will confirm the QSO. Signing up for LoTW is relatively painless and its free. For more information on LoTW, go to https://p1k.arrl.org/lotwuser/default. I am also now uploading to ClubLog which is emerging as a popular logging and QSL request service (OQRS) worldwide. Check it out!  www.clublog.org.


For those who have eQSL accounts, I would recommend that you make your QSLs more valuable to others by getting your account "Authenticity Guaranteed" through the eQSL service. This makes your eQSL confirmed for eQSL and CQ Magazine awards.

Another interesting QSL service that I use is from www.globalQSL.com. You establish an online account, design a QSL, and upload your ADIF files. They will print your QSL and forward it to a QSL Bureau serving the recipient's QTH. Prices are reasonable and takes the hassle out of processing cards for sending to the bureau. You can also get your cards printed through Global QSL as well. They do an outstanding job at a fantastic price. Give them a try! Finally, if any of you wish to make a schedule with me, I am more than willing to help you out. Just let me know. You can email me or send me a Private Message (PM) on the http://www.obriensweb.com/sked/index.php?board=lotw website. I usually monitor the site when I am on the air. I probably won't be logged in but I am there lurking.
