Ham Member Lookups: 28678



I will be operating as W1AW/8 on 160, 40, 30, 20,17,15, and 12 meter RTTY beginning 10/15 through 10/21.






I was first licensed as K9SNX in Greenfield, Indiana in 1959. I moved to St. Germain, Wisconsin in 1960 and graduated from Eagle River High School in 1961. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Superior in 1965 in Theatre and English, I took a teaching job in Kingsford, Michigan and I taught there 35 years, retiring in 2000.

My interests are hunting, fishing, golf,and casino gambling. I have been inactive on the ham bands off and on for 10 years.

During that "off period", I missed at least 10 DX-peditions to new countries. My DXCC total as of October 1, 2014  is 338. E30FB (Zorro), thank you!!! Thanks to the nice opening on 12 in Feb. and March , I have 9 band DXCC.

I have won two Sweepstakes for Michigan and 40 meter phone in the CQWW back in the 70's. SO2R has peaked my interest and I operated in the 2007 RTTY RU using this method.

SO2R paid off in the 2010 RU. I won the Great Lakes Division HP category for the first time.


Won a second plaque in the 2011 RTTY RU. First place finish again!!!

My present station includes a FT-1000MP, Icom Pro II, SB220,and an Alpha 8410. I also have 2 meter stuff and a new Icom 706MKIIG for mobile and portable operations. The antenna farm consists of a 4 element SteppIR at 72 feet and a 40 meter rotating dipole at 80, a sloper on 80 and an Inverted L for160, and at times, an inverted vee for 75 meters. Fall 2009 I added a Butternut HF6 for my second radio. I also have a CL-33 at 45' on a sidemount for SO2R.

4 element SteppIR and 40 dipole at 72'.

My major interest is RTTY. I love RTTY contests! I rarely operate on SSB anymore.

In March 0f 2005, I operated as V31TR in Belize. This was my first operation on the DX side. We had a blast operating in the ARRL DX SSB test. Also, I enjoyed the RTTY and CW operation before and after the contest. The photo below does not reflect my usual attire. It was very hot and humid that day.

In 2006 I operated as MJ/W8JWN from Jersey Island. The German bunker, site of the Jersey club, was very cold.

In March 2007, I operated from W0AIH in the ARRL DX SSB Contest. Paul has a fantastic station and antenna farm. I hope to return to operate another contest when propagation improves
