I was first licensed in 1962 - I inherited the "ham radio gene" from my father Willis and his brother John - who were first licensed in Philadelphia in 1933 as station license W3CYN. (My dad taught me the Code on a long road trip when I was 10!) I was mentored through my early years by my Uncle John, KQ3E (SK) and legendary DX'er Jack Bock, K7ZR (SK). In addition to hamming, I do occasional volunteer radio work in Central and South America and with my local emcoms orgs. I am an admitted DX Hound with a DXCC QSL count of 260, all using less than 100 Watts from the Pacific-Northwest USA. I am chasing 5-Band DXCC, needing "only" 40 more on 80 (which is why it remains to be seen if I remain a low power "purist"!)

My main rig is a Kenwood TS-590S that runs 100W to a 3 element triband Cubical Quad up about 38 ft/12 Mtrs on a roof tower. For other bands, the antenna is a full sized G5RV @ 75 ft/25 M. You will find me on 80-10, mostly CW, although I enjoy a bit of rag chewing on SSB and playing with digital modes.

I am a big fan of QRP - my rigs include an vintage Argonaut 509, Hendricks PFR-3 and an Small Wonder Labs PSK20 . I take one of these little rigs with me backpacking and all my other travels. The above photo was taken Sept. 2012 at a wilderness camp site on the Pacific coast of Wa (working a 9M2!). I often use QRP at the home QTH and have achieved QRP DXCC. A few years back I hatched the idea of posting youtube videos to document the fact that DX can be had via QRP, eventually this morphed into a "DIY DXCC" project:   my "QRP YouTube DXCC A-L" and QRP YouTube DXCC M-Z" playlists on Youtube document the fact that DX can be had via QRP. I reached the 100 country goal on 24 Sept, 2012 and I post new QRP countries as I work them. I continue to be amazed at how much DX can be worked with QRP; it never "gets old"!

I also enjoy playing bluegrass, blues and fiddle tunes on guitar, mandolin and autoharp with my XYL and friends. For me, music is like radio; it is a common language that brings folks together. It is ALL about having fun and "playing well with others"!

I have operated K7HV portable DL, I2, HC7, XE2, PY8 and as YN3JG.

QSLs OK via the Bureau, direct or LOTW - I upload ALL my QSOs - No eQSLs.
