I really like the WIVUCH program--Wisconsin VHF/UHF County Hunters. Just say "Wee Vooch!" http://wivuch.com

My Dad taught me AM DXing at age 8 and paging through an old Allied Radio catalog made me interested in "Radio". I did CB at age 11-14 (1972-74)--I treated it like ham-radio. Got my license at age 16 in 1977 as WD9ENK. Only had one horrible CW QSO with that call. Stayed interested but inactive just reading QST for the next 8 years. Then in 1985 I renewed my lapsed license as KA9IZP and got active on 2m FM. The bug bit hard and I earned my Advanced and the call KE9QT and then in 1995 (finally) my extra. When vanity calls came along, I picked up W9FZ--W 9 Frank Zappa.

I am off the deep end with VHF/UHF/SHF weak signal activity. I take all of my gear and go roving in order to activate somewhat rare grids for the other fixed stations. Usually this is during contests but not always so.

In 1994, I founded the Badger Contesters--a group of like minded VHF+ weak signal operators in Wisconsin. It's been very rewarding watch activity levels grow in the state. Our Web page is: http://badgercontesters.org

I operate 6 meters through 2304 (yes 903). No VUCC's yet because I rarely operate from the same place. EN43sq is the home QTH of record in Hillsboro, WI. I have a townhouse in the Twin Cities where I fly for Delta Airlines.
