I was first licensed in 1959 as KN0VBU in Kansas City, MO. I have been a ham for more than 55 years, and I enjoy contesting, DXing and ragchewing.
My mode of choice is CW, and my favorite contest is the November CW Sweepstakes. I do my best to participate in the other major contests, as well as the weekly CWops hour-long tests (At least at 1900z or 0300z.)
My current rig is an Elecraft K3/100 with a P3 Panadaptor, and my antennas are a TH6DXX tribander at 50' and a home-brew trap dipole for 80m/40m at 30 feet. I rarely use my old Drake L4B amp.
Ham Radio Deluxe is my everyday logging program, and I use N1MM+ for contesting.
You may QSL direct (sase, please) or via the bureau. I also upload all logs to LOTW.
I serve as vice-president of the Kansas City DX Club, and also as the club's webmaster. Check out our website at: www.kcdxclub.com.
I am also president of the Kansas City Contest club. Website pending!
K0VBU.com is my personal blog website. I hope to keep it fresh, although time constraints and other activities seem to limit my updates.
See you on the bands - for a quick contest qso, or a longer ragchew!
