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.


Antennas are a 4 el Hy-gain 20 mtr beam at 30 ft, an inverted V (kind of) at about 28 ft for 40 and another half breed antenna for 30 meters which must work as i've got over 160 countries with it and not running more than 100W. All my contacts go into LOTW. I have added a 5 El 15 meter monobander at 25 ft hoping to get better results on that band as well. 10 Meters consists of an 4 el Cushcraft that also works pretty well on 12 meters at 29 ft on the same tower that holds the 15 meter beam. I use a7 el M2 at about 40 ft for 6 mtr SSB and CW. That antenna has really made a big difference for me and made operating on that band a lot more fun. DXCC, probably never but there are a lot of states and grid squares to work and with limited band openings, it's slow going except in the May-July time frame.

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!
