Ham Member Lookups: 8787


Member of the RVARC (Roanoke Valley ARC-Roanoke, Virginia).

I QSL 100% to all DX Contacts- I will QSL Stateside contacts if you send an SASE with your QSL. NO E-QSLS please No LOTW.

Bands I work- 40 to 10 mtrs (CW-SSB-FM) 2 Mtr FM . Favorite band is 30 mtrs for DXING I can be found there most of the time I am on the air.I also listen to 29.600 10 mtr FM. I I Have DXCC-WAS-WAC-Rag Chewers Club(RCC),Old Timers Club, QCWA Life Member and ARRL Life member. SMIRK #243 and Ten Ten # 36359

 I received my first license in New Jersey. First call was WV2OAF then upgraded to WA2OAF. Thanks go to Harvey Wasserman K2BOG, Steve Fried K2PTS (SK),John DiGiacomo WA2IBT (SK), and Roger Gordon KG4ULC (ex WA2BHZ).These were my Elmers.

Member of the original Pompton Valley ARC that met in Butler,NJ.( Callsign used was W2OR).

Co-founder of the Skylands ARC,Ringwood,NJ we had a2 mtr rptr on 146.325/146.925 located in West Milford,NJ. Callsign used was W3YAX. courtesy of Joe Fulmer (holder of the call) and one of the clubs founders.(This rptr is now being handled by K2BOG and is located in Sussex County,NJ).

Served 4 years in the US Air Force and served in Viet-Nam  at Phan-Rang AB and Plieku AB, Stateside Bases -Mc Guire AFB, N.J. and Loring AFB, Maine. (I worked Law Enforcement & Security).

Military Organizations I belong to-VSPA (Viet Nam Security Police Association), AFSFA (Air Force Security Forces Association),

AFA (Air Force Association), Together we served (Military association).

After working  in a Law Enforcement Position for 31 in New Jersey  I retired in July 2000. I decided to retire and move near the Blue Ridge Mountains here in Virginia to  relax and enjoy Ham Radio as well as other interests.

My station has been toned down from Towers with Multi Band Yagis, Monobanders, Multiband Quads, and high power amplifiers for all bands from 160 to2 mtrs to a simple station consisting currently of an Icom IC-746 Pro (100 watts) and a Carolina Windom 40 (Radio Works) the backup rig is an Icom IC-735 (100 watts).I work 40-10 mtrs. I am enjoying Ham Radio like in the old days with the low power and simple antenna even though I have pleanty of room here to put up a large Antenna Array again with High Power. I find it more pleasuable to use my simple station now and still enjoy the fun of chasing DX as well as an occasional rag chew with locals etc.

Favorite band for DXing is 30 mtrs.  I can also be found on  40/20/15/17/10  (I wrk  99% on cw ).

I have an Original General Class- Had to pass the 13wpm code test as well as the written test with those Stern looking FCC Examiners looking over our shoulders (alot different nowdays with Volunteer VE's).
