Hello From Walla Walla!
Thanks for the look up on QRZ, and if we talked on the air, thanks for the QSO!
The picture above (left) is my tower (55 feet) with the X7 "Big Thunder" beam. My HF radio is an Icom 756PROIII. The VHF/UHF is an Icom 207H.
I was originally licensed while in high school in Oak Park, Illinois (about 1979). My first call sign was KA9EFC. When I upgraded to General Class in about 1980 my call changed to N9BCC. I finally upgraded to Extra in about 1995. In 1999, I received the Professional Educator of the Year Award from the ARRL for my teaching amateur radio the school where I worked in Portland, Oregon.
Somewhere along the line I lost all my old logbooks and QSL cards. If you received a card from me as either KA9EFC or N9BCC, I would love to get a copy of it!
I am a Humanities teacher at Pioneer Middle School in Walla Walla. I also teach Tae Kwon Do (I am a first degree black belt in the World TaeKwonDo Federation).
I and my family enjoy bicycle touring. In August 2013 my 15 year old son and I rode our bikes from the Oregon-California border to the Mexican border (1000 miles). The picture of the two of us was taken at Borderfield State Park at the border. We rode the entire Oregon coast in August 2011.
In the summer of 2008 my wife, two kids (then ages 10 and 12), and I bicycled on tandem bikes across the United States (3500 miles). For more information you can visit our blog: www.shut-up-and-pedal.blogspot.com. The picture above is from Cape Elizabeth, Maine when we arrived at the Atlantic after our 80 day cross-country odyssey. We were also featured on National Public Radio's Day to Day program on December 22nd. To listen to the program click here.
I hope to hear you on the air soon!
