First licensed as KN6TUP in Pine Valley, CA. in 1958. Moved to Kansas in 1959 and received call sign K0TAO. Joined U.S.Air Force in June 1959 with boot camp in San Antonio, technical training as an Aircraft Mechanic at Amarillo AFB. Sent to K.I.Sawyer AFB in northern Michigan on January 1, 1960. About 1962 i received the call W8BPV. 1965 brought a transfer to Germany and the new call sign DL5LS. Operated various 5A2/5A1 stations in Libya while TDY there between 1965 and 1968. Left the Air Force in 1968 and went back to California picking up the call of W6KQL. A move back to Kansas in 1972 brought me W0OGH in 1972 which i will keep until i go operate the big rig upstairs. In 1984 i transferred to Arizona where i retired after 32 1/2 years with Mother Bell.
I like chasing DX on the HF bands and also 6 meter SSB and CW. Mymain radio is an Elecraft K3. No Amplifiers in the station. I also operate AM with a couple of TMC transmitters, one a PAL-500 which uses a pair of 4CX350A tubes and gives me about 125W output with full carrier. Also there is a TMC SBT-1K(J) that uses an 8295A which is essentially a 4CX1500B tube for use when i operate AM and gives me 250W of RF. Recently i added a Homebrew 4-250 transmitter which give me legal limit on 40M AM.
Need only two states, Rhode Island and Delaware for WAS on 6. Where are you guys when the band is hot?
If you work my call on digital modes, you are working a PIRATE! The only digital stuff i do is CW. No PSK, no JT-65 etc etc. Occasionally i participate on WSPR but nothing else!
