QSL image for W0FK

 

I was first licensed in 1965 in Findlay, Ohio as WN8RAV, and held the calls WA8UUR, WD0BKD and KB0CJ until I received my current call. I'm an attorney by profession and am General Counsel for a major private label consumer products company. I am an ARRL Volunteer Counsel and have assisted local hams with zoning and related antenna/tower issues since the late 1970's.

I am an active DX'er, holding DXCC #1 Mixed (355 countries) and am on the Honor Roll on phone (351 countries). I'm active from 160 through 2 meters, and although I enjoy chasing DX on the low bands, 6M remains my favorite (576 grids).

My station consists of an Elecraft K3 , KAT500, KPA500, KX3, KPA100, SPE Expert 2K-FA, Alpha 9500 and an Alpha 8406. My current antennas are a SteppIR 18E at 60 feet,an M2 2M12 at 64 feet and an Innovantenna 7 element 50MHz LFA WOS at 68 feet on a US Tower HDX-555; SteppIR BigIR with the 80M coil; 160M Inverted "L"; 1/4 wavelength vertical on 80M; and a Hi-Z 4-element phased receiving array and a Shared Apex Loop for the low bands.

IOTA NA-034

I operate /4 from Longboat Key, FL (IOTA NA-034) "holiday style" occasionally. Please check out the W0FK/4 page.

 

HISTORICAL NOTE: The previous holder of my call was David H. Gieskieng of Arvada, Colorado. Mr. Gieskieng was born October 14, 1918, and was licensed from 1935 until his death on August 30, 2000. He was a noted engineer, has a number of US patent to his credit, and invented a low frequency antenna (named the Gieskieng Antenna in his honor), the details of which are summarized at http://www.ok1rr.com/index.php/antennas/38-meet-the-modified-gieskieng-antenna I am privileged to continue to keep the call he held active.
