Thanks for dropping by. I was first licensed in 1952 as WN2KKZ, upgraded to general quickly. Then advanced and extra license much later. I can QSL via LOTW, OQRS, direct or the buro.
My operating is on 160 thru 6 meters, mostly chasing DX and IOTA’s. I have all present DXCC entities confirmed, over 2600 qsos for the Challenge Award, and over 750 IOTA’s confirmed. I am trying for the 5-band WAZ award and find it very challenging on 80m. I’m a charter member of the Western New York DX association (WNYDXA) and was president for 2 years. I have operated from several DX entities, VP9/W2KKZ, Bermuda, and as V26Y in Antigua and as J73KKZ in Dominica. My rig as pictured is a IC 756 Pro, AL-82 amp. I use a SteppIR 3 element 6/20m antenna with dipoles on 30, 40, and 80m. On 160m I use a inverted L. My tower is 55 foot crank up.
I’m a retired print shop owner and still get to operate some of the old letterpress machinery. I have been in the printing business all my adult life. My XYL, Joyce, and I have been married since 1959. We have six grown children, 3 boys and 3 girls, 12 grandchildren and two great grand child. We have lived in Western New York near Buffalo all our lives. We have traveled in Europe, many Islands in the Caribbean Sea and Mexico, and though out the States and Canada.
