Ham Member Lookups: 8949

   

Originally from the State of Washington, I was first licensed in Oregon as a Novice in August, 1954. After completing school I served for 30 years in the U.S. Navy as a Radioman and later as a Naval Officer. During my Navy career I was able to operate maritime mobile from the Atlantic, Mediterranean, Red Sea, Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean areas. While ashore, I set up and operated DX stations in Japan, Republic of the Philippines, Hawaii and Italy. My Italian call, IK8DRN, is still current, although I don't have plans to return to Italy anytime soon.

In early 2004 I retired from my post-Navy career in Defense Consulting and returned to Hawaii to continue with the things I enjoy most in ham radio, DXing (from a DX QTH !) contesting, traveling and renewing old acquaintences on-the-air and in person. Unfortunately, I had to leave the Islands a year later and return to Virginia and my "no antenna QTH !" I'm now fully retired from the work force and stay busy working DX using only my flagpole and similar dirivatives for antennas. Somehow, with lots of LISTENING, patience, perserverance, and good propagation, I've managed to achieve 8BDXCC and need only14 more countries on 160M ! Plans for installing a remote site in the Virginia countryside are finally moving ahead now that installation of a satellite high-speed Internet capability has been accomplished at the site.

Recently I've returned to 60M and enjoy "pushing the envelope" using only 100W and my newly configured Inverted L which I can leave up 24/7.  Send me an email if you need VA, NC or FL on 60M !
