Greetings and welcome to my QRZ bio page. I have been an active DX'er and contester since late 2009 and my preferred operating modes are Phone and RTTY.

Achievements:

  • 150 DXCC confirmed as of February 2013
  • DX University, 2012
  • DXpeditions to Anacapa Island (NA-144) for the 2011 and 2012 IOTA contests.

  • ARRL Worked All States
  • ARRL DXCC

I am a member of the ARRL and the Orange County Amateur Radio Club(W6ZE).

My station has one radio for HF (an Elecraft K3) and one for VHF (a Yaesu 857-D). The HF antenna is a 5-band Traffie Technology Hex Beam @ 40'.

For hams only, I invite you to follow my Twitter feed. You must send me a follow request to get access, as I only allow other hams to follow this feed. I will not spam you with trivial, non-ham related crap! Generally I'll report band conditions and ham related items of interest I find out about.

I also have my own YouTube channel. For now, I am just using it to suscribe to other ham videos I find interesting.

Finally, if you'd like to see photos of my shack and antennas, my DXpedition photos, and portable operating events, you can find them here:

Remembering Robert G. Sherbeck, W6UX (SK)

To the best of my knowledge, only one other Ham has held the W6UX call. If you know this not to be the case, please contact me with the details. I located his obituary on the internet...

(from the Lake County Record Bee)

Robert G. Sherbeck passed away quietly on March 28, 2007 at home with his family. He was born in Havre, Mont., May 5, 1917 to Olaf and Eva Sherbeck. Attending Oakland public schools and graduating from Fremont High, he studied radio theory and communications by telegraph at Central Trade School. He obtained an amateur radio license and a commercial radiotelegraph license around 1936. Amateur radio became a lifelong hobby, along with assembly of his own receivers and transmitters in the early days. He served in the U.S. Army signal corps during World War II and was stationed in Italy. In 1937 he began work for Pan Am in the radio department, working on the ground stations. He served on one of the last remaining sailing ships, the Trade Wind, in July and August of 1939 as a radio operator. In later years he went to sea for Matson Steamship, and American Presidents Lines, as a radio operator, making about twenty trips. He retired to Clearlake and from the sea in the mid 1970s, studying aviation, and became an accomplished pilot. Buying and piloting his own aircraft, a Taylorcraft, was a great joy. He made many trips around the country, as far as Maine, visiting friends, and occasional fly-ins for the Experimental Aircraft Association. He was a member of the Society of Wireless Pioneers, Lake County Amateur Radio Society, Lake County Airman's Association and Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
