I was first licensed as a Novice in 1953 and later became an active DXer with a General Class license in 1956. (Drawing diagrams of Coltley and Harpitts oscillators was difficult at age 10 :-( My first DXCC was issued in 1959. The last country on the list was ZA1A, worked in October, 1991.

After earning Bachelors and Masters Degrees at the University of California in the sixties, we moved to Wyoming, and I started a business and began to DX “seriously.”

In 1984, I was invited to join a DXpedition to Clipperton Island, and while that trip was never completed, we reached Clipperton in both 1985 and 1986 as FO0XX. In the following years, DXpeditions included another 15 trips, including ZA1A, 9M0S, H40AA and TX0A. Numerous contest expeditions and several wins and world records followed.

I spent six interesting years in Newington as the manager of the Membership Service Department, and I am now back hamming in Wyoming again working DX seriously on Topband.
