In March of 2018 I was granted this callsign, replacing my old call of KØ​MDJ, which I held for almost 20 years!

I am a recently retired professor of communication studies at a "liberal arts college" (small university) in northeastern Iowa, and now reside in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I am a life member of ARRL and AMSAT and enjoy both HF and satellite DX. I hold DXCC Satellite certificate number 166, and am a member of the Minnesota Wireless Association and the Twin Cities DX Association.


After living in Cedar Falls, Iowa for 26 years, I took a one year work assignment in Nottingham, UK during 2011-12 and operated there as MØGZO. From fall of 2012 until spring of 2017 my QTH was Decorah, in the extreme northeast corner of Iowa. I also operated in Malta as 9H3DJ from February to June of 2016 while on another work assignment.

My current rig is a FlexRadio 6700, with an Acom 600S on HF. The primary antenna is a Tennadyne T-10, ten-element log periodic at 42 feet (13 meters). Backup transceiver is an Icom IC-9100.

I am also quite active on satellites, using the Flex with Downeast Microwave 2MLDPA and L432-28 tranverter system, and M2 "LEO-pack" antennas with computer rotor control using a homebrew Arduino and K3NG software.

K1N satellite QSL pictured above is for one of only 29 satellite QSOs made by the DXpedition!

The card was hand-delivered by my Decorah, Iowa former neighbor, Glenn, WØGJ, who was one of the expedition leaders (shown holding the antenna). I helped convince Glenn to take satellite gear to Navassa and provided some pointers on satellite operation.

73, Mark
