Ham Member Lookups: 32917


2017 was a big year for me!
Licensed 40 years! Contesting for 25 years!
I aimed to make more QSOs in 2017 than in any prior year!

As of the end of September, I had a new record!
The CQWW RTTY Contest put me over the edge!

I ended with 17,410 QSOs as K3PP - a BIG new record!
This total does not even count the 1,038 QSOs in the PA QSO Party
because I operated that contest as W3FRC/CAR, the bonus station!
It also does not count my contribution to the WE3C M/M total in ARRL DX SSB.

Here is where I stand right now:

I was just getting back into radio in 1992 and then the bug hit me hard! I had my "Dark Ages" from 2003 through 2007 and another tough year in 2016, but 2017 was a new renaissance for me! I'm having more fun than ever in ham radio! I joined the CWops organization, a move that has resulted in a notable improvement in my CW abilities! I am extremely grateful to CWops for this! You can see my big jump in CW in the chart above. By mid-year, 2017 was already my best CW year and I blew away my best RTTY year by March! I even made it back to the Dayton Hamvention after a 16-year hiatus! It was a blast!

The Brief K3PP Story:

Hi, I live on a great hilltop in eastern Pennsylvania, about 100 km north of Philadelphia.I was licensed in 1977 as KA3AFZ and upgraded to Technician shortly afterwards with the new call sign N3BDA. I was then mostly idle until we bought our current QTH in 1991.

I realized that driving to my home from any direction was uphill, so I looked it up on a topographic map (this was BEFORE Google Earth, mind you!). To my delightful surprise, we were right on top of a great hill. This revelation compelled me to dust off my old HW-101 and try to make some QSOs. As the story always says, "The rest is history!" I made it to Extra class and then when the FCC opened the vanity call program in 1996, I landed K3PP! It's a keeper!

I've built a pretty decent station from which I enjoy contesting and chasing DX. I enjoy ragchewing, though I don't get much opportunity for that. I keep busy as a Research Director at Forrester Research, which doesn't leave nearly enough time for ham radio - but I certainly try! Please visit my web site for more on my station and activities.

I am a proud life member of the Frankford Radio Club, CWops (#1787), the Straight Key Century Club (#17168) and the American Radio Relay League (ARRL)!

I look forward to a QSO with you!
