Let's keep in touch:
Celebrating my 39th year of HF DXing!!!
Need 2 more DXCC countries to have worked them all, and I personally worked them myself (No DXCC "Assisted" here!) from my home station.
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.
Past calls and/or DXpeditions: A35DD, S79DD, S92DD, T20DD, T31DD, V47DD, V63CG, ZF2RE, ZK1PEQ, 1S1DD, 3D2CQ, 5W0DD, 8P9EG, FM/N6PEQ, J37/N6PEQ, NH6/N6PEQ, PJ2/N6PEQ, PJ4/N6PEQ, P40/N6PEQ, KP2/N6PEQ, KP4/N6PEQ, XE2/N6PEQ & CO2/N6PEQ.
