QSL image for W1FJ

I was first licensed in April of 1955 as WN1FJJ at the age if 15. I dropped the last J in the 70's when the first "vanity calls" became available. I am primarily a CW DXer and contester with mixed DXCC of 377, 368 on phone and 348 on CW, 9 band DXCC, 2600+ on the challange and 5BWAZ(199). I am retired after 44 years in the lighting business with Philips. Part of my job involved product standardzation and I representd the USA on 4 Inernational commitees. This allowed me to integrate my travel with my passion for radio.Over the years I met a lot of the guys on the other end of the QSOs.  In 1971, thanks to JA6CNL I received the 2nd reciprocal license issued in Japan and operated as JA6YAO/W1FJJ. Over the years I have contested from Curacao, Bonaire, Haiti,Grenada and the KM1W station. I am still the QSLmanager for HH2VP.

In 2003, I consolidated households with N1DJU at her home in Topsfield, MA,  small rural town, NE of Boston. In addition to radio, Ruth and I enjoy gardening, listening to live jazz music, traveling (over 400 days on cruise ships) and the 9 grandchildren that we share. Ruh says" NO guy wires in my yard" so I have 50' of Rohn 45 topped by an optibeam 40/30 rotary dipole @ 60', a skyhawk @ 50', 80 inv v @45' and a 12/17m dipole side mounted 30'. There is 160m inv L, a top loaded 80m vertical an a 4BTV in the backyard. A 3 el 6m yagi is @ 25' on an old TV mast. A pair of K9AY loops help out rx on the low bands. Inside there is a K3/P3/ ACOM2000 and a FT1000D/ALPHA 89.
