Ham Member Lookups: 24536


I was originally licensed as KN2RQC in 1956 at 13, and progressed to Extra Class 3 years later. The original rig was a Heath AT-1 and a National NC98. Quite active in DXing and homebrewing through high school and college, I drifted away after grad school, and my license eventually lapsed. It was, after all, the '60's!

Through a chance question by a ham friend at dinner in 1982--"Can you still copy code?"--I retook all elements in San Francisco and was issued NI6T. Although then living at the bottom of a canyon---I'm still there---I eventually went back into DXing. I have earned Top of the Honor Roll (Mixed, Phone) and CW Honor Roll, 5BWAZ, DXCC on 9 bands, CW/Phone/RTTY WAZ, CQ Field Honor Roll and other awards. My antennas are on top of, between and under redwood trees. See the top picture. I also have been known to frequent 160 meters, and am now QRV on 6 meters.

Pete, the friend who brought me back to radio, is now NI6E.

I enjoy contesting and am a member of the Northern California Contest Club (NCCC) as well as the Northern California DX Club (NCDXC).

I am also active in DXpeditioning, having been part of T32CW (1992), 3D2CT/CU (1995), 3B9R (1999), K5K (2000-coleader), and K7C (2005-coleader).

Above: K6SRZ and I bury 160m radials on Kure Atoll. (Alan is the mule here; we traded off.)

Not all trips are radio trips. Here's a shot taken at the home of an indigenous shaman/midwife near Otavalo, Ecuador, during a traditional cleansing ceremony.
