Ham Member Lookups: 9919


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. 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 270, all using less than 100 Watts from the Pacific-Northwest USA. I am chasing 5-Band DXCC, needing "only" 40 more on 80M (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 160-10, mostly CW, although I enjoy a bit of rag chewing on SSB and playing with digital modes. I also use a Icom IC-2720 VHF/UHF Dual-bander and various HT's for Emcomms. 

I am a big fan of QRP -  the rig at my operating position is a Index Labs QRP+. I also have one of KD1JV's "Mountan Top Radios" (Ver 2), an Argonaut 509, Hendricks PFR-3 and an Small Wonder Labs PSK20 . I take at least 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 (in two parts, below) in which my webcam captured QSOs with over 150 entities, ALL using less than 5 watts -- I am having as much fun with this as chasing "real" paper...

I am also fond SWL'ing and am a confirmed scanner nerd. I realized a lifelong dream by adding a nicely refurbed (Collins Designed) EAC R-390A 82lb receiver to the shack.. 

I have operated portable HC7, XE1, PY7, DL,I2, G, EA and as YN3JG. I am happy to QSL via the Bureau, LOTW or Direct, but I do not have an eQSL account.
