I go by my middle name HENRY. Thanks for checking my QRZ page.
My XYL and I retired on the water in the Northern Neck of Virginia near the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay. I spent my whole life in Richmond, Virginia, but now, we're living not far from where I spent many summers at my grandmother's cottage as a young boy.
I am active on most all amateur bands from 1.8 through 1296 MHz, where my first love is contesting, chasing DX on CW and the technical side of the hobby. I have two sons, Ryan, W4RCB, Will, KR4OI and my XYL is Debbie, WA4QOC.
