Ham Member Lookups: 4589


Hello to all and thanks for the contacts. I'm really new to Ham Radio and appreciate all the help I've been receiving. I grew up in Alaska and lived there 53 years of my 65 years. My parents went to Alaska in the early 40's as operators for the Civil Aeronautics Administration which is now the Federal Aviation Agency. After High School, I spent a couple of semesters in college and then joined the US Air Force for a four year tour. I went back to Alaska where I worked various jobs including construction of the Alaska Pipeline and Commercial fishing. Eventually I ended up back in College and with a degree in Petroleum Technology spent almost 20 years working on the North Slope in the Prudhoe Bay Oil Fields.

I'm currently using an Icom 756 Pro lll into the K4KIO 6 band Hex Beam at 60' and also have a G5RV at 35'

I use a Cushcraft 13 element beam for 2m/440.


QSL Cards:

If I receive a QSL card from you, I will be happy to send one in return and you do not need to include SASE. I will be happy to reciprocate.

If I send you a QSL card, you may reciprocate if you desire.

Very large Kodiak Brown Bear taken by me on Kodiak Island in the early 90's.


I had the Bear full mounted and donated it for display to the Kenai Visitors Center, Kenai Alaska.

If you are ever in Kenai, stop by the visitor center and take a look. The center is full of wonderful and interesting Alaskan history.

During my time in Alaska I became an avid Pilot and chronic hunter and fisherman. I flew small airplanes with floats, large tundra tires and in the winter snow skis. I loved to fly and eventually ended up with my single engine commercial instrument land and sea, multi engine commercial instrument land and sea ratings and then flight instructor. I was blessed to fly Alaska, and the Lower 48 too, for so many years and so many experiences.



Relaxing in the Bristol Bay Region. Flying can require a nap now and then and is best done on land.

Ok, so I don't fly anymore and have taken up new hobbies. I truly miss flying though

I now spend a lot of time in my shop wood working and then outside gardening, and of course with my new Ham Radio hobbie; I will be spending time on the radio.
