I was first licensed in 1965 and actively chased DX during my high school years.
Engineering studies in college left little time for amateur radio & I was mostly inactive during that time.
I spent 30 years in Silicon Valley working in telecommunications and computer engineering for IBM and Siemens. During that time, my amateur activity gradually increased again - mostly chasing DX on CW, my favorite mode. I semi-retired 12 years ago and have since been teaching engineering courses to the next generation of EE's.
The station is comprised of Yaesu & Harris equipment. Since I live in an antenna restricted community, all my antennas are small and I am always experimenting with new designs. The QTH is located 1,000 ft above the Sacramento valley in northern California so the close-in Fresnel zone to the south and west is favorable and helps offset the small antenna limitations in those directions.
