NA6XX (Chuck - San Jose Ca.)

I was first licensed in 1967 as WN2JQY in Scotia New York . In 1968 I relocated to Phoenix Arizona with my family and upgraded receiving a new call, WA7RKR.After graduatingfrom Arizona State University in 1973 I went to work for Hewlett Packard in Northern California and changed my call to KD6VS. As an avid CW operator it soon became clear that this was not an ideal CW callsign andrequested vanity call NA6XX.

 

Over the years my primary interest has been HF DX'ing and achieved a mixed DXCC total of 351 countries. Most of this total was achieved with <200 watts to a TH11 (20 - 10M) and a Force 12 EF303 30M monoband yagi. In more recent years I have "retired" from HF DX'ing with my great passion becoming VHF / UHF and UW DX'ing. I still occasionally fire up on 30m - what a great band. My current capabilities are:

 

30M

Antenna GP (tree hung)

Transceiver Yaesu FT- 1000MP

QRO NA

 

6M

Antenna 8 el. G0KSC LFA (11.9M boom) @ 75 ft.

Transceiver ICOM IC-7700

QRO Alpha 8406 (1.5KW)

 

2M

Antenna 2M - 2M5WL @ 85 ft.

Transceiver Kenwood TS-2000

QRO 2M - Henry 2002A (1KW)

 

Over the last three years I have developed a great appreciation for mystery and challenge presented by the 6M band. As was the case on HF, chasing countries is still my primary interest on the Magic Band. CM97bf is definitely NOT a great 6M DX'ing location. Although my QTH is 800+/- ft above ASL, I have an 11 deg horizon towards the South Pacific and 4-6 degrees towards Europe. Despite the mountain "handicaps" we have still been fortunate to work some great stuff in the S.PA. (FK8, VK9N/ZL1RS etc.) proving that anything is possible on this terrific band.

To everyone I have worked over the years thank you for the QSO and it has been my great pleasure to work you.

73 and best DX,

Chuck
