About N4HFA

Originally licensed in Illinois at age 14 under the callsign WN9UZE. (never got to operate from IL)

I moved to Florida shortly thereafter and received a new call WN4GPX.

Above: Me as a Novice operator (left) and General (right) in Altamonte Springs, Fl in 1967 and 1968. Rig was a Globe Scout 65B transmitter and a Hammarlund HQ-170C receiver. Ran 65 watts CW into a trap vertical. The good ole days!

I upgraded to General in 1968 and received call WB4GPX. In 1982 upon moving to a different QTH and renewing my license, I was issued my current callsign N4HFA. In May of 1987 I upgraded to Advanced and later that year in September I upgraded to Extra.

I was inactive for 40+ years, and late in 2012, I decided to become active again.

 

I enjoy working QRP and have been running 5 - 10 milliwatts on JT9 and making many contacts state-side as well as DX.  It is amazing what low power can do with the right conditions.

ARCI membership number: 3190

North American QRP CW Club number: 7289

Member of Four State QRP Group

Currently active on 2 meters and 70cm, 10 meter FM mobile, EchoLink, Digital modes (WSPR, RTTY, PSK31, JT65, JT9, SIM31, Olivia & Contestia), SSTV, as well as SSB and CW on the HF bands 160 thru 6.

I spent 30 years in management with a electric utility in Florida. After that, I owned and operated a computer store in Gainesville, Fl for 5 years. The last four years prior to my retirement, I was the Director of Management Information Systems for a Sheriff's office.

When I'm not playing radio I'm out riding my 1999 Yamaha Roadstar 1600cc motorcycle.

73,

David
