Main StationHW* QRPPFR3 QRP


Main QRZ picture shows XYL and me on our Touring bike on a recent trip to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee.

Pictures above shows my main station, my vintage station, and QRP radios. They are all clickable links to my website.


The neat little yellow radio is a new toy - the new 3 Band Portable Field Radio. If Ham Radio has gotten a little boring - try QRP. It brings back the excitement of those first DX contacts when you were a Novice - there is something wonderful about having a DX QSO with a battery powered rig hooked to a simple antenna.

It has been enjoyable to operate from outside on the deck with the PFR3 and an 88 ft. wire run up about 40 ft into a tree. The PFR3 with internal batteries, internal keyer, and built-in antenna tuner makes a great portable station.

After a July 2009 lightning strike, the main rig is now a Ten Tec Omni VII, Collins 30L1 amp, Dentron MT2000A tuner, and of course - lots of accessories. Visit my website wb9dlc.com for more info.


Age 61 and ham 45 yrs - my, how time flies!
FISTS NR 11145 and CC 1717 // QRP ARCI-12072 // NAQCC-845 // SKCC-1658

I grew up in South Bend, Indiana about 1 mile from The University of Notre Dame. I was first licensed in December, 1969 as WN9DLC and did most of my Novice work with a Globe Scout 680A and a National NC173 receiver. I have typically been very active over the years except for an 8 year QRT from about 1996 till December of 2003. I’m active on HF and 2 meters again and having a blast.


At the present time I operate mostly CW with the 'Main Station', the 'Vintage Station', and the 'QRP Station'. I also operate some PSK31 and some SSB. In August '05 I installed a new tower with a 5 band 2 element Quad so I can now operate 80-40-30-20-17-15-12-10 meters.

I’ve been married to my wonderful wife Carol since 1975 and have 2 grown sons who I am very proud of, and a wonderful daughter-in-law.  My Granddaughter, Claire, is my pride-and-joy.  I babysit several afternoons every week.
