First licensed in 1978 as KA8GVS in eastern Ohio. Joined the US Navy and traveled around the world to other countries. Operated in Guam as KA8GVS/KH2 for three years, from 1983 until 1986. Worked many countries and got my first taste of contesting operating in the CQWW SSB and WPX contests.

In 1990 I transferred to the Island of Diego Garcia and obtained the call sign VQ9CQ and worked the club call sign VQ9IO in the WPX contest in March of 1991. While there I also worked the first satellite contacts from the island. The pile up was so great on the first try that the bird shut down into emergency power mode.

In Oct of 1992 I got out of the Navy and moved back to Sacramento, CA. Eventually I was hired to work in Saudi Arabia and moved to the Middle East. At first I was not able to find anyone that was doing amateur radio. However that changed in November 2000 and I joined and became a member of the HZ1AB Club Station in Dharan, Saudi Arabia. From there I enjoyed contacts from all over the world and even worked a few contests.

Currently I reside in Tucson, Arizona and enjoy rag chewing on 2 meters, HF work, contesting, and building new antennas and camping on Mount Lemmon when the weather permits. I am working on an amplifier that I hope will be resurrected and brought back to life in the near future.

President of the Radio Society of Tucson, which I greatly enjoyed. Looking forward to Field Day 2012, and being up in the cool pines.

Now residing in Arivaca, AZ. DM41in. Kind of a long drive to work each day and crossing running washes during the monsoon can be exciting but Arivaca is a quiet place to be. Really RF quiet here on all bands. Station has an R6000 vertical for 20M - 6M and a three wire folded dipole for 40M. Later in the winter will put up a two wire folded dipole for 80/75M.
