*********WB0TEV/M in 2014 Oklahoma QSO Party Sat 22 March 2014********

I had a ball operating mobile from 21 counties across Southeast Oklahoma.  Thanks to all who worked me are were part of the over 600 QSOs that day. You can read my rather lengthy write-up on that trip at:

http://lists.contesting.com/archives//html/3830/2014-03/msg02557.html

I  put together some Youtube videos from the DashCam I used to record the trip.  Here are a couple from the Love county pileup:

Note that the time stamp on the video is in CDT.  Add 5hours to it to get UTC. 

****************************************************************************************************************

I got my novice license in April 1976 as WN0TEV. Got on the air in June of that year after putting together a HeathKit HW-16 with HG10B VFO with a 80/40 dipole. Some of my early Elmer's there in Grinnell Iowa were Darryl Stimpson W0IQJ(SK), Harry Mill WB0AGM (SK), Ron Ridgway (K0ETZ, now W7PHX) and John Wedlock W0ASU who proctored my novice exam. Not long thereafter the FCC decided that novices would no longer have distinctive callsigns and thus became WB0TEV. Went off to LeTourneau college in Longview Texas that fall and operated novice CW from the club station there which at the time held the call K5JEF.

The summer after my freshman year in college I drove up to the FCC office in St. Paul, MN and got my Advanced Class License. I would later upgrade to Extra in 2000.

While in college at LeTourneau I ran a lot of 3rd party traffic for the many missionary kids who were my class mates to their parents in South America on the old Halo and InterAmerican traffic nets that met on 21.390 back in the late 70's.

I began chasing DX seriously in mid 1990's and have achieved DXCC on Phone, CW and RTTY. Not on the Honor Roll yet but getting close.

I engage in some contesting as well, mainly the ARRL Phone Sweepstakes contest and various State QSO Parties.

Since about 2004 I have been a regular mobile participant in the Texas QSO party, activating 2 to 3 dozen counties in NE Texas the last weekend in September.

In November 2013 I was a member of the 3DA0ET Dxpedition to Swaziland. Had a blast! Hope to return to southern Africa again someday on another DXpedition organized by K5LBU and ZS6RJ.

 

73,

Victor
