From the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.



I am located in the small town of Pioneer, California in Amador County. Pioneer is located between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe, 150 miles East of San Fransisco.

  • I received my current call sign WK6RF on May 4th 2010.
  • I was first licesed as WB6RFI, on September 28th 1976, Mike Wheeler WA6NRH (now W1VI) gave me the Novice test.
  • My first QSO was on October 19th 1976 with WA6QEE Kevin in Rohnerville California. Report was 579 both ways. It took sometime to get a FCC license sent to you in those days.

Renee and I met many of the local Amateurs in French Polynesia and of course our friends, FO8DF Jean Parker, and FO8GW Wilber Trafton, which are now both silent keys. French Polynesia and its people hold a special place in our hearts. It’s truly a paradise we will never forget.
