Ham Member Lookups: 776


I became a ham in 1983 while working in Misawa, Japan. In Japan my AMRS (Auxiliary Military Radio System) call sign was KA8HW. My FCC callsign was KB6AOR but it never saw light of day in the ether. When I returned to the States in 1986 I was issued KA3NZR. After 33 years I applied for the vanity callsign N8ZR and it was assigned to me in October of 2016. I lucked out and was able to keep the "NZR" in my new call sign.

I primarily operate HF CW. I enjoy DXing, rag chewing, contesting and traffic handling (I am currently active on the West Virginia Net, 8RN, EAN, RRIE, RRI DELTA, MSN, and HBN CW traffic nets. I am a TCC traffic handler.).  I am also lucky enough to be an A1 operator member. 

A TS-590S is my primary rig. I also have a TS-450S, TS-430S (my original rig bought in Tokyo 1983), TS-820, a couple of TENTEC Scouts and a couple of QRP rigs - TENTEC ARGO and HW-8, all of which I use occasionally. My antennas are a Hex Beam and a dipole. I use Bencher or MFJ paddles for most CW QSOs.  I use straight keys occassionally; Bunnel J-38, NYE Navy, Navy flameless, and a Soviet military surplus TKF key. 

Other hobbies include HO scale model trains, building plastic and wood models, stamp collecting (radio related stamps only), and a bit of woodworking.

I look forward to meeting you on the air.

Let your fingers do the talking...

Cheers and 73,  Harry (N8ZR) QTH Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. "Almost Heaven"
