STEVE NORRIS--First licensed in 1964, at the age of 15, as WN5KUD/WA5KUD in Arkansas. The years '68 to '72 were spent operating only from W5YM, the University of Arkansas club station. I have held W5KI since April 1977 when 2-letter calls were first opened up under incentive licensing. After graduation, I started my 20+ years in the U.S. Air Force, flying around the world as a C-5A Navigator. My later USAF, non-flying, years were in Command & Control (DL), en route support Ops (EA7), and motor pool operations (W2). That afforded me the opportunity to operate fixed stations as: /6 in CA, /3 in DE, back to 5-land in OK, /9 in IL, DA2NO near Ramstein AB Germany, W5KI/EA7 from Rota NS in southern Spain, and finally /2 in NJ. We stayed in New Jersey after active duty, for civilian work in the greater Philadephia area until Jan 2006. We were then fortunate to move back to Arkansas and the Ozark Mountains.
Located near the top of a 1400ft ASL mountain, and a 45º slope down to the 900ft ASL valley and lake below, we finally are enjoying some antenna freedom. Active on 160m to 2m, my primary interests are contesting on CW-SSB-RTTY-PSK; HF DX; 6m DX; WSJT (meteor scatter) on 6m and 2m; and finally, some HF SSTV. During day and evening hours, I try to maintain a working SSTV webcam on 14.230 mhz (with emphasis on DX Prop). The received pictures show up on all the major SSTV internet cam sites (VK6AAL, KE5RS, K6HR, and many others.)
QSL NOTES: We reply to all direct and bureau cards ( please send an SASE for direct ). 100% of new contacts are uploaded to ARRL LOTW within a few days. Most normal, "daily" QSOs from 1964 to present are in LOTW. However, prior to computer logging only limited contest have been uploaded to LOTW. Since Nov 1988, all of my QSOs should be in LOTW. If you need an earlier contest QSO in LOTW, I will try to find that log and upload the QSO. DX NOTE: My backlog of bureau cards was cleared years ago using GlobalQSL.com services. If you have not received a long overdue QSL from your bureau, let me know via e-mail and I will quickly place a new one in the GlobalQSL.com queue for you. 73, Steve.
