QRZ Lifetime Member #88 Lookups: 4543

First licensed in 1965. Got back into HF near the end of 2012 with XYL's urging. Then she got me a digital card; having fun with that on JT65 and JT9.

Will be forever grateful to my godfather for getting me interested in ham radio, and the Elmer who worked with me to get my Novice license. Big time appreciation goes to WB6LPZ, WB6EKU (now K6KVA), WB6NXK (now K7KL), WA6ZFL, KA6ZRJ and WB6RVR for their friendship and support in this great hobby!

High-Points are working U2MIR and pleasant QSOs. Not a serious contester, but occasionally have fun with them. However, I DO take the California QSO Party relatively seriously! Only a few active hams in Placer County... 

I use Logbook of the World, QRZ.COM and paper for logging. Nothing beats having a backup or two!

After 49 years of hamming and occasional membership, I became a Life Member of the ARRL and QRZ. And, no, you're never too old to become a Life Member.

To celebrate 50 years of hamming, I upgraded from Advanced to Extra. I'll miss "Whiskey Bravo Six Messy Kitchen Sink", but there were too many times that people didn't get the "Kilo" in "Mike Kilo Sierra", so I hope this sequence works better. smiley

Also just became an ARRL VE.


Had a lot of fun being on the receiving end of the pileups for the UPRR 150th Anniversary Special Event Activation as W0UPR/WB6MKS on Saturday December 1, 2012. (This also got me back on HF).
