I was born and raised in San Jose, California. I received my amateur license in 1982 after the trek to the FCC office in San Francisco.
My first novice callsign was KA6QCN.
I was a BCB and TV DXer in my younger day and still enjoy some FMDX.
My amateur radio hobby started by using mostly CW being a novice with some phone. I currently enjoy the digital modes: PSK31, RTTY, Hellschreiber, Olivia, JT9, JT65, etc.
I was an ARES member for many years in Santa Clara County, California and past ARRL EC locally here in Jackson County.
Currently live in an HOA cummunity :-( but able to put up a stealthy Ultimax 100 33 ft dipole which works great on JT9 and JT65. So far this antenna has heard Europe, New Zealand, South America and Japan. The antenna is connected to a Kenwood TS-480.
Retired from the Santa Clara Fire Dept in California (1995) with 23 years of service and moved to Oregon in 1994.
Retired (again) from ODOT in Sept. 2012 as a Motor Carrier Enforcement Officer for the state of Oregon after 12 years of service.
Served four years in the U.S. Navy at NAS Los Alamitos, CA., NAS Moffett Field, CA and VP-46 P3 Orion Squadron at Moffett Field.
