First licensed in 1954 as WN4GFV in TN while in high school, then upgraded to W4GFV. Moved to Missouri in 1964 and FCC-mandated callsign change to W0MDX. Moved to TN in 1987. Vanity callsign N0BG obtained in 2000. W4RK vanity callsign obtained in 2000. Worked Millenium DXCC three times in 2000, once under each callsign: W0MDX, N0BG, and W4RK. Moved back to MO in 2006.
Long standing interests are Emergency Communication, DXing and Contesting (CW and RTTY). I also enjoy using my Elecraft KX3 QRP to activate summits in the Summits On The Air (SOTA) program. I am the Missouri Association Manager for SOTA.
Just getting started in Satellite communications and coming up the learning curve. Very interesting area of ham radio and requires a lot of skill when tuning manually for Doppler corrections. So far, the experienced Satellite OPS are very patient with my lack of tuning skill. Best DX so far is Cuba.
CU on the bands! 73, BILL, W4RK
