Trustee / QSL manager for KL5DX (Alaska Contest Club)

I first got intersted in electronics when my dad started me on the Experiment of the Month Club and he noticed I liked the electrical experiments. He noticed an ad for a ham radio club and enrolled me in it. I was 12 years old. At 13 I got my novice licence, WN5BIR and away I went! I got WAS and WAC and about 40 countries as a novice. My 2nd QSO was XE2PAZ which immediatly got me intersted in DX. I don't remember when I first got interested in CW and contesting, but it was early on, I think competing with David, WN5ZNY (later N5JJ - SK) as he was a classmate in junior high and high school and we I was always trying to out do him on CW, but never could. To this day, he was one of the finest CW ops I ever knew.

I worked alot of DX and contests through the '70s and '80s but other things of course got in the way at times and my operating was on-again/off-again through the years but I think I am back to stay. After being tired on not being able to put up a decent antenna in a deed restricted community, I bought a 2-acre lot slightly in the country with no restrictions at all (except no drilling for oil, no mining for coal, and no junk yard businesses!) 

Current line up of equipment is:
Elecraft K3/P3 with video board
