I use my middle name - David on the air.


Originally licensed at age 14 under the callsign WN9UZE.

I moved to Florida from Illinois 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 20+ years, and late in 2012, I decided to become active again.

I enjoy working QRP (ARCI membership number 3190) 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.

My main rig is a Yaesu FT-950 and my backup rig is a Kenwood TS-440S/AT. I use a Kenwood TM-231A for 2 meters, and an Icom IC-2AT handheld. I also have a Heathkit HW-8 for QRP and Heathkit HW-32A 20M monobander sitting on the shelf. Antennas are an 80 meter horizontally polarized Delta Loop fed with homebrew ladder line and tuned with a Dentron AT-1K tuner for HF, and a Diamond F22A for 2 meters. When on CW I use a MFJ-422D keyer.

Currently active on 2 meters, 10 meter FM mobile, EchoLink, Digital modes (WSPR, RTTY, PSK31, JT9, & JT65), as well as SSB and CW on the HF bands.


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.


My eQSL card


While on vacation last year I operated portable from Winslow, AZ September 8-14, 2013.

Final count as of September 14: 25 states and 14 countries worked on the fixed mobile setup.

Had a great time!

(TS-440SAT 100 watts and 392M mobile antenna)

P.S. From part 97 Rules and Regulations:

97.313 Transmitter power standards.

(a) An amateur station must use the minimum transmitter power necessary to carry out the desired communications.

Editorial Comment: It doesn't say may, it says must.
