I have been a licensed amateur since 1963, and have held the calls: WN9KQG, WA9KQG and WB0MAE, while living in Wisconsin, North Dakota and Minnesota. I upgraded to Extra Class in 1978 receiving my present call, K0CN. I am retired now having taught and worked as an environmental chemist for 45 years. I enjoy ham radio with my wife Joyce, K0YCE, who has her general class license.
My station consists of a FLEX-6700, 6500 or a Icom 7000 with an Alpha 9500, 8410 or an Icom PW-1. My antennas include a DX Engineering 8040-VA1 vertical for 80, 40 and 30M, a Force 12 OCF Vertical Dipole for 20-10M, a SteppIR DB18E, which covers 40 through 6M, at 95 ft and other wire antenna.
I enjoy DXing and contesting with SSB, CW and digital modes on the HF bands. I also enjoy keeping up with my friends on several 75 meter radio nets. I operate from two locations in Minnesota, one in Hennepin County and the other in Crow Wing County on Lake Mille Lacs near Garrison, MN.
