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.

December 2015 i decided to get out of the heat and rat race of the big city.  I bought a 5 acre plot of land in SE Arizona where it is much cooler and less populated.  It may be a while before i can get my towers and antennas up and get back on the air.  Looks like i'm going to miss the VP8 Dxpeditions and possibly the K5P to Palmyra but i won't die any sooner because i didn't work them.

I like chasing DX on the HF bands and also 6 meter SSB and CW. My main radio is an Elecraft K3. I also have a very nice Johnson Viking II with VFO that i pair up with a rebuilt R-388 for use on 40M AM.  I'm also a fan of the Maritime Radio Historical Society which operates KSM on Saturdays and special nights during the year.  Knowing thier history makes thier CW signal most melodius to the ears of true believers.  They also broadcast on Saturdays for several hours using 60WPM RTTY.

If you work my call on digital modes, you are working a PIRATE! The only digital stuff i do is CW, if you want to call it that. No PSK31, no JT-65 etc etc. Occasionally i do get on running WSPR mode.
