I ws first licensed in 1957 as a Novice with the call of KN9LJI (IL).  Since then, I hve held the calls of K1UVP {MA), W8??? (MI), W9KUL (WI), W4OUE (GA) and WT8C (OH). 

Member of our local radio club, Lake County Amateur Radio Association (LCARA) located in Lake County, OH.  As a LCARA member, I am a Volunteer Examiner and have held that position for about 25 years.

Also, I am a long term member of the North Coast Contesters (NCC) radio club and operate both from my home station and from the K8AZ multi-single/multi-two contest station in Chesterland, OH.  NCC operates mainly in international contests.  For domestic contests, we belong to the Mad River Radio Club.

As an active DXer, I have confirmed 340 active entities in both SSB and Mixed modes and 339 using CW. (Still need P5).

Station consists of a Yeasu FT-2000 transceiver and an Alpha 9500 amplifier.  I live in town on a triangular 0.23 acre lot and have a 54 foot crank up tower.  Antennas consist of a Bencher Skyhawk tri-bander for 10-15-20 meters at 55 foot, a Cushcraft rotary dipole for 12-17-30 meters at 57 foot and a Cushcraft 2 element trapped 40 meter yagi at 60 foot all on a single mast.  I also have an 75/80 meter inverted Vee at 50 foot and a coaxial inverted L for 160 meters also at 50 foot.  Both of these antennas are supported by a single cross support going through the tower.

In all of this, I have to thank my wife, Connie, KB8ZZW, for her understanding and support.  Without it, I would not be in the position that I am.
