I have been QRV since September of 2004, I was previously active under WV6SVW and WA6SVW from about 1961 to 1967, operating from Union City, CA and Fremont, CA until my license expired.

I am the past President of the Northern California DX Club (NCDXC) http://ncdxc.org, the co-sponsor of the International DX Convention at Visalia.I am also a member of the Northern California Contest Club (NCCC) http://www.nccc.cc/.

I am also interested in Trains and Model Railroading (HO gauge), so AE6RR is a great call for me (not a vanity call)! The train pictured on my QSL card is a Western Pacific F7 locomotive that was part of a special running of the original California Zephyr. This train consisted of original restored cars including dome cars and a dome observation car. I rode this train in April of 2004.

My home QTH is in San Jose, CA, Santa Clara County, grid CM97, Santa Clara Valley Section at the mailing address. The current HF antenna is a G5RV Jr. (52 ft. long) on 40 to 6 meters. This antenna is about 2 ft. above the roof in a stealth installation. The main rig is a TS-2000x with an Ameritron ALS-600S amplifier and a LDG AT-1000Pro Autotuner.

However I mainly operate from a remote station in Truckee, CA, Nevada County near Lake Tahoe. I am using the RemoteRig RRC-1258 MkII http://RemoteRig.com system with a Kenwood TS-480 and a K3/100. The TS-480 control head is in San Jose and the radio body is in Truckee. The K3 is also controlled via RemoteRig with a K3/0 inSan Jose.  Both radios can drive an Ameritron ALS-1300 1200W solid state amplifier wtih a MFJ-998 autotuner all controlled via the Internet. The antenna is a full size G5RV at 80ft.

Since returning to the air in Sept. 2004, I have achieved DXCC (Phone, CW, Mixed, 20m, 17m, 15m & 10m), WAC (5-Band, CW, RTTY & 80M Phone), WAZ, WAS (20m mixed & 20m phone), CQ DX, WPX and the new CQ DX Field Award (132 fields worked/126 confirmed at this time). I currently have 248 DXCC entities in the log with 243 confirmed.  All with wire antennas!

I appreciate all QSL cards and I QSL 100%. QSL direct, stamps or IRCs are not required, SA envelopes are appreciated. I also submit all logs to the ARRL Logbook of the World and Club Log. I am good in the ARRL 6th District Bureau.

I am also active on local 23cm repeaters.  You may also hear me on mobile with a Kenwood TS-480 and a Hamstick.

See you on the air!
