I was first licensed in 1980, with a novice call of KA8JUH. subsequent calls were N8DQS and KD8CP. I switched to KR8T in May 2008. Most of my ham activity is DXing and some contesting. My latest interest is weak signal on 2m and 70cm, now that I have a tower up again.
I currently work at an electronics manufacturer in Grand Rapidsand teach Okinawan karate twice a week at a local church as part of their outreach program.
I'm also involved with the IRA (Independent Repeater Association)which maintains a linked repeater system in Michigan. http://www.w8ira.org/
