I operate from Florida, West Virginia and other portable locations.  If you are unsure of my location for our QSO, send me an email and I will confirm my location.

Formerly KN8MHB, K8MHB, K7LKO, W1CDS, KZ5KO (Panama Canal Zone), HI8XAG (Dominican Republic), DA1CF (Germany), DA1CF/HB0 (Lichtenstein), DA2NN (Germany), and guest operator at HZ1AB (Saudi Arabia).

My name is Bert and I QSL 100% all cards received, direct or via the bureau. Please QSL. I need your card! If our QSO was not confirmed, send me an email and I will search my log. LoTW is always welcome.

I was first licensed in 1958 as KN8MHB at the age of 13 in Moundsville, WV. I upgraded to Technician then General in 1959. When incentive licensing hit, I upgraded to Extra class to keep my CW privileges. When Extra class could select a callsign in 1976, I got my current call N8NN.

I retired from the U.S. Army after 30 years of active duty. I flew AH-1G Cobra helicopter gunships in Vietnam for a year, served a year in Saudi Arabia and seven years in Germany. Most recently I worked with computer software and systems development. I am now a full-time ham.

I have several major interests in ham radio: Ragchewing on CW, chasing DX, and antique boatanchor radios. I like to hang around 7030 kHz where the Chicken Fat Operators (CFO) used to be -- I miss that old gang. CFO #400.

I hold an ARRL appointment as an Official Observer, and I support the Marshall County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). I am a member of the West Virginia DX Association.

Boatanchors are my weakness! Unfortunately, most of my boatanchors are still waiting to be put back on the air. I especially enjoy E.F. Johnson transmitters. 

The main station is a Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark-V Field and VL-1000 Quadra amplifier. 

73, Bert, N8NN.
