QRZ Lifetime Member #90 Lookups: 31506

Hi from Joe / N6MM,

Welcome to my QRZ.com web page. This web page is intended to tell you a little bit about me and my Amateur Radio activities here in Newark California.

I am a lifelong California resident, born and raised on the Central Coast and then moved to the San Francisco Bay area in the late 60's. I am a member of SBARA, The South Bay Amateur Radio Association, The Northern California DX club, and I am also a member of the ARRL. I was first licensed in 2005, then in 2007 I upgraded to General class and obtained the vanity call WB6TFD. In December of 2009 I upgraded to Amateur Extra and also changed my Vanity call to the present 1 by 2, N6MM.

I worked as a technical associate in the advanced manufacturing engineering of touch screens here in the Silicon Valley. And after a 45 year career working for the same company, i am now retired. I am very active on 2, 6, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 40 and 75 meters. I really enjoy chasing DX and have worked 259 countries and confirmed 255.  I also like to just rag chew when time and the bands conditions permit it.

My station consists of 4 Icom's, a 756 Pro, Pro 2, Pro 3, and a Icom IC-7700, all microphones are stock. My backup and QRP rig is a Yasue FT-897D and in my truck I run an Icom IC-706 MK2 G. My amp for home is a 1KW, HL-1.5 K fx from Tokyo Hy-Power and the main antenna is a Mosley Pro 67B, 7 element 6 band trap yagi on a free standing tower at 55 ft. I also have a Hy-Gain DX-77 10-40 meter vertical. For 75 meters I use an Alpha Delta Model DX-OCF-HP off-center-fed 7-band antenna that works vary well on 75 meters. I often can be found on 20 or 40 meters calling CQ/QRP and have worked and confirmed many countries on just 5 watts. All thanks to the Mosley.

I operate an Icom IC-910 on 2-meters and 440 MHz; I enjoy making contacts on 146.520 FM and on 144.240 USB. I use my Icom 756 PRO for DX-ing on 6-meters during the sporadic E season in May, June and July on 50.125 MHz USB. In my spare time I go to work and now look forward to retirement in 2015 or so.


I refuse to work stations that consistently and deliberately break into an existing QSO, or when they call out of their turn, when I have called out a specific geographical area or when I call a station with only partial call letters. I very much understand when people make mistakes, because we all do. But when a station continues with the malpractice of constantly calling, even after being asked to stop, then there is no excuse for such behavior. I just note the call and no matter how many times I am called by the station, I will not respond to it. You stand a far better chance of making it into the log by respecting the DX code of conduct! When fellow hams continue this bad practice after being asked nicely and repeatedly to stop, I then just go QRT as it stops being fun anymore.

Please follow the DX code of conduct.

I look forward to working you and exchanging QSL cards.
