DXCC Honor Roll.  Need 1 more DXCC country to have worked them all.  I personally worked them myself from my home station.......no remote station operating, no IRLP, etc.  In other words......

No DXCC "assisted" here!  smiley

Celebrating my 42nd year of HF DXing


Amateur Radio and Shortwave Listening to me is "The Adventure of a Lifetime".....it brings all ends of the Earth to me.....and sometimes takes me to the ends of the Earth.  Thank you Coldplay for for making a song in the same name:

I support the DX Code Of Conduct

First started as an SWL "KDX6T" in 1974 at age of 4, then became a ham in 1986. Inspired by my grandfather W6RII (SK), and my father N6EGC. Jim Rafferty N6RJ (SK) was my DXing and contesting elmer. I am forever grateful to these three individuals for teaching me the best of ham radio. Enjoy DXing and contesting from 1.8 MHz thru 50 MHz.
