Thank you for visiting my QRZ page.

I'm known on the air by my nickname "Orb". I've been called Orb since I was knee high. When I was young everyone said I was in "ORBIT", and bouncing off the walls. So that' s where the Orb comes from. Guess I musta been just a "little" hyper. About the only ones that call me by my given name "Darwin" are my mother, the IRS, and my doctor.

I was first licensed as a novice with the call WD0GFI in 1978. In 1979 I upgraded to General "back then you had to drive to an FCC office for testing "right at 300 miles for me" and was issued the call N0CPC. In August 1999 I applied and was issued my present vanity call WK0DX.

I can never thank enough my elmer and very close friend Woody W0QEK now silent key. He made such an impact on my families lives, my oldest son Chad now has the honor of using Woody's former call. Also my thanks to my father Lloyd KA0BCU now silent key, who helped me with all the studying and helping to learning morse code, I miss ya dad.

I have 5 children, 3 grand children. Hoping that one of the grand kids will make the fourth generation of hams.

Here's me in the shack.



I am mobile 7-8 hours a day. My 2012 Toyota Tundra has a Kenwood TS-480HX running about 70 watts through a LDG auto tuner into a stainless steel 102" whip. It allows me to tune 40-6 meters while mobile. For vhf and uhf I run a FT-7800 into a Tram dual band antenna. Also for vhf I have a TH-9000 TYT transceiver for 222 mhz. Here is a picture of my mobile in the panhandle of Oklahoma where I drive everyday.


To confirm our QSO,I accept EQSL and LOTW. I prefer the old fashioned printed QSL cards so via the Bureau or direct is fine too.

73 my friend and good DX.
