Field Day 2014 Notice:  I have uploaded my log to LOTW but there was a time probem which I attempted to correct.  If you need a confirmation for DM43-Gila county and it doesn't match on LOTW, contact me with details and I will fix it.  

  The flu bug took me down after 53 Q's so not much of a showing this year.


For C91TK and YJ0ANR QSL direct SASE/IRC, bureau or LoTW. Thanks to all who worked me and for your patience.

I was first licensed in August of 1959 as KN0VSV at the little town of Edgewood, IA.
I passed my conditional license in June 1960 and became K0VSV which I held until March
of 1967. After I sat for my general exam in Minneapolis I was issued the call of W0LBY which I held until October of 1975.

At that time I was issued the call W8LUO while living in Lansing, MI and kept that until I relocated back to Iowa in 1979 and became N0BNW at Muscatine,IA. In 1980 I got my extra class license and in September I was licensed as KE0Y. In June of 1996 I used the vanity call system to revert to my original K0VSV. Finally after relocating to Arizona I took my present call in October of 2004.


I try to operate as many bands from 160m to 432mHz and CW ,SSB and digital modes.
I still favor CW probably because of my start as a novice class. I'm not that good at
it, but I have better success than I do on phone. Right now I am doing a lot of meteor
scatter work picking up new grid squares on 6 and 2.

I am a DX'er at heart but I also enjoy some contesting but at a slower pace than a few years ago..

I even dabbled in EME a life-long dream of mine and managed to work 17 stations on 2m
using a single yagi (2m12) and 100 watts as measured in the shack. Not a challenge, but
I also worked HB9Q on 432. These were all using WSJT modes.

The C91TK trips (2006 and 2008) were another of my dreams and ones I will long
remember. It seems for each dxpedition I call it my last one, but here I am ready for
# 3, YJ0ANR in Vanuatu. I am anxious to see what propagation is like from a different part of the world.

Professionally I was an educator for 33 years teaching science in middle school for 10
yrs and high school 23 years. Interspersed I also taught Geology and Environmental
Science part-time at the local community college.

I am married for 36 wonderful years and 36/44 isn't too bad. I have 1 daughter and 1 son. My wife and daughter are
both licensed but have little interest , I keep their license active just in case
they might want it later. My daughter has a girl and boy and my son has a son.
Grandkids range in age from 4 to 7 so still a bit young to get them into ham radio.
Oh yes, I am practically deaf so when we meet be sure to speak up and try to wait for
me to be facing you. It is somewhat an advantage on noisy airplanes, but not for
inter-personal communication.

On the subject of eQSL, I have uploaded some of my logs. KN0VSV and K0VSV(Ia-Cond) however have times either in local Iowa time or a mixture of local and UTC, therefore are of little value.

The W0LBY log for Riceville, IA has been converted to UTC. Any other W0LBY logs have not been uploaded because they cover many mobile contacts, at least 6 different fixed locations and a similar problem with a mixture of time formats so they will constitute more effort than I care to apply to converting them. If by some chance there is a W0LBY QSO for which you want an eQSL email me otherwise they will not be uploaded.

Starting with KE0Y (Sept. 1980) times are UTC and should be generally correct. I will continue to upload NQ7R logs on an occassional basis. I do not plan to pursue any eQSL awards so if you need my eQSL before I upload let me know.
