2013: Back in W9 for who knows how long.
Currently doing work in the financial/trading area, dealing with all kinds of fun topics.
I was first licensed in 1994 as N9YXA. In 1995 my parents purchased my first HF radio, a Kenwood TS-180 which helped me work nearly 98 countries and 46 states. Unfortunately, in 1997 during my trip to Zimbabwe (as Z2/N9YXA)it was smashed by a famous European airline on the journey from Heathrow to Harare. Later that year, I bought a Kenwood TS-930 from my mentor, N9JLP. In 1998, I got my Extra class license (with the 20WPM test).
I primarily participate in contests and have a few pieces of wallpaper and a plaque somewhere in a box. I was QRT from 2001-2005 and again from 2008-2010 primarily due to work, but was able to get back on the air on the East Coast (NY/NJ) at a couple contest stations and man the night CW shift at a couple Field Day events. My favorite mode of operation is CW and I have been attempting to dabble in PSK. You'll most likely find me on 40 CW or SSB currently.
Proud member of the following contest clubs:

Where Does "Fred" Come From?? - When I was first on the air, everyone kept wanting to call me Frederick. Fred (Freb, Frebbix) seemed like a logical shortening to the confusion. Plus it's nice on CW; although my initials CJ are even shorter and flows a touch smoother.
