My first ticket was issued in 1975 (WN6EJL) later followed in 1976 with WA6EJL when I upgraded to General Class. My current call, WN6K, is not a vanity call, but was issued in the fall of 1985 when I upgraded to Extra Class.
My main radio interests are DXing and Contesting. It does not matter what mode SSB or CW, if there is a contest, large or small , I am usually on begging for a contact. 99 percent of the time I am in the Low Power (less than 100 watts)Class. I do this for neighbor sanity mostly but also my Dad taught me to never pick a fight with the "big Guys."
My current station is an FTdx5000 MP with a SteppIR DB18 on my W-51 Tower at 55 feet. Below that is an OCF dipole wire fed at 50 feet for 80/160m.
I have been Past President of both the Palomar Amateur Radio Club (PARC) here in San Diego County as well as the San Diego DX Club. I belong to the Southern CA Contest Club (SCCC) and that is where the scores get 'claimed.'
In 2005, W6NOW and I went to Panama and did a couple of weekends- expedition / field day style
QSLs for HP1/WN6K as well as my XE2/ stints go to the home address.
