QSL image for N6KJ

I was first licensed as an amateur radio operator in 1975 at the age of 13. My first call was WD8DMX and I lived in White Cloud, Mi. I have since held the following calls: KI6NX, AA6BE, and now N6KJ.

I was very active in contests, DXing, emergency communications, and traffic handling all through high school. I entered a period of relatively low activity after high school and didn't become really active again until I moved to San Jose, Ca. in 2000.

My favorite amateur radio activities are contesting, DXing, experimenting, and preparing for emergencies. I am a member of the Northern California Contest Club, the Stanford Amateur Radio Club (W6YX) and the Saratoga Amateur Radio Assocition (SARA). You will often hear me participating as a member of a multi-op team at one of the local contest stations such as W6YX W6NV. At this point in time (June 2013) I have 320 countries worked and 320 confirmed.  I received 5BDXCC #6744 in January, 2010.   I am active on HF, VHF, UHF, and 10GHz. You will often hear me on 6m during the summer Es season. You will also hear me involved in local ARES nets, RACES nets, and EOC training exercises.

In addition to amateur radio I enjoy music, sports, travel, and good food.  I'm a bit of a foodie.  My wife and I like to try restaurants owned by famous chefs whenever we get a chance. I play guitar at my church (Westgate Church in San Jose, Ca.) on a regular basis. Our worship music is very contemporary. I like a wide variety of music including 70's/80's progressive rock (Genesis, Pink Floyd, Yes, Rush, Marillion, etc.), modern/fusion jazz (Larry Carlton, YellowJackets, Dregs, Pat Metheny Group, etc.), and modern day alternative (Live, Puddle of Mud, Dave Mathews Band, etc.). My favorite bandfor about 20 years now has beenDream Theater. My favorite sports include: cycling (mostly road, but some mountain), golf, tennis, and skiing.

I've been an embedded software engineer for over 29 years now. I've worked for such companies as: Rockwell International, GTE, Trimble Navigation, Broadcom, and now Qualcomm. I currently design GPS receiver (and other positioning technology) software for cell phones.

I return QSL 100%. If you send an SASE I will return QSL asap via direct mail. QSL's without an SASE will be returned via the buro.

73 and CU on the air, Kelly
