Thank you for looking up K2OF

I was first licensed as a 14 year old in 1957 as novice station KN3AFO in Erie, PA. My mentor was Nick, W3RWO. It was a record breaking year for sunspot activity and 10 meters was open around the clock for DXing. Every ham in town had a 10 meter mobile rig. Those were the days!

My first ham gear consisted of a Heathkit AT-1 transmitter (6L6, 30 watts) and a Heathkit AR-3 receiver followed by a variey of Harvey-Wells, National, Drake, Hallicrafters, Knight, Globe, Kenwood, and Yaesu equipment. I had a never ending supply of Texas Crystals plus a few high end Bliley Crystals made right here in Erie, PA

I held call signs K3AFO (Erie, PA), W1GZI (Hudson, NH), and W2ILU (Middletown, NY)

I operated TA3BL (Diyarbakir), HZ1AB (Dhahran) and HZ1JN (Riyadh) during my many years in Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Our MITRE Site Station, HZ1JN, was especially active during Gulf War One

I relocated from Tewksbury, MA to Erie, PA in Sep 2010

My favorite bands are in the HF spectrum and my modes of operation include SSB, CW, FT8, BPSK with some RTTY

My rig is a Yaesu FT-920 xcvr, ACOM 1000 amp, RigExpert computer interface, and a two element SteppIR on a Force 12 Low Profile Tower

Memberships held in the Diyarbakir Turkey Radio AssociationDharan Amateur Radio Club (DARC)MITRE-Bedford Amateur Radio Club (MBARC), Presque Isle Amateur Radio Club (PARC),  Radio Association of Erie (RAE),  and the ARRL

Operating awards for K2OF, K3AFO, and W1GZI include:

  • DXCC (355 countries)
  • CQ WW Contest Award (W3 Top Score on 14 MHz Phone)
  • WAS, WAZ, RCC, and Bulgarian Saints
