I am an avid DX'er and contester. Please give me a call when you hear me on the air. My favorite mode is CW, and I also operate SSB and 10 meter FM (I hope to be on RTTY soon). I operate the HF bands (10 thru 160), and I have recently become active on 60 meters. You may have run across me in the past with one of my previous calls: KMØR, KBØTU or KAØACI.
I am the an active member of the Mississippi Valley DX/Contest Club (the "DX Hogs") and Trustee of the club station - KMØDX. And I am Vice-President and contest committee chairman of the Boeing Employees' Amateur Radio Society (BEARS) St. Louis, which sponsors the Missouri QSO Party. I am an ARRL Assistant Midwest Division Director and I serve as the " ØT" QSL card sorter for the WØ Incoming QSL Bureau.
I operated as OA4/WØTT in Nov 2005, and multi-op'ed 2005 CQ World Wide DX CW contest as OC4O with DL5YWM, from the Radio Club Peruano in Lima. I visited Ham friends in Fukui, Japan in 2007, but do not have a Japanese license. See the nice newspaper article at:
All logs are kept current on LoTW, and QSL is OK via direct or Bureau. E-mail requests to check logs and for Bureau cards OK. Sorry, no eQSL.
Also if you need Missouri (or St. Louis County) on a particular band or mode, you may suggest a schedule thru E-mail and I'll try my best to accommodate.
¡Yo hablo español!
73, good DX, and I hope to catch you in the next contest!
TRIBUTE TO FORMER WØTT CALLSIGN HOLDER:
The WØTT callsign was previously held by Robert D. (Dean) Morrison who is now a Silent Key (notice in November 1984 QST). I did not have the pleasure of meeting Dean during his lifetime, so I have begun searching for more information about him. I do know that he was born May 11, 1926, (the date on the Certificate of Death disagrees with the inscription on his gravestone), and he served in the US Marine Corps in World War II. He lived in Parkville, Missouri at the time of his death on July 8, 1984, and he was survived by his XYL Eleanor. (Eleanor later passed away on 31 December 2006). Dean and Eleanor are burried together in Leavenworth National Cemetary in Kansas (see photos).
I have not yet been able to locate any of Dean's surviving relatives or family. If any readers remember Dean, or have any additional information about him, would you please contact me?
I'm sure that Dean did the WØTT callsign proud, and I hope that I am able to follow in his footsteps. "Semper-Fi" and God-speed to the gentleman that I never met, but with whom I share the WØTT callsign.
Eric - WØTT
