Welcome to my page!


The link above will take you to a 2015 DX Christmas Present for several East Coast hams.  We were able to work ZL on 6 Meters. My own QSO is at 19:02.  This was largely due to K2PLF playing Santa and alerting us to this most unusual band opening. Thank you Marty and the ZL hams who were QRV and especially to Roger ZL3RC who made this recording. The list of hams worked by ZL3RC and recorded here in order are:


Retired December 2016. Completed a career in electronics ranging from biomedical R&D to high volume telecommunication and avionics manufacturing. It all started with Ham Radio.

55 Years and still going strong!

March 7th 2017 marks the start of my 55th year of continuous licensing. Originally licensed as KN3SME  in Philadelphia PA I have been active on the air since March 7, 1962.  Passed my General less than a year later. Back then it was an HT-40 and an S-85 receiver. An all Hallicrafters Novice station!

Took my Extra in 1978 after getting an FCC "QSL" for being 200 Hz. out of the General band on 40 CW. THAT was motivation! You can't work the DX if you can't call them below 025!!

The main rig is the K3 which drives the QRO amp 160M- 10M or the modified SB220 on 6M. I recently installed  a P3 display and it has added a new dimension to "looking down the band." It is a nice tool in the receiving arsenal.

An IC251A  drives a 300 W brick on 2M.

My antennas are:

Tennadyne T-6 LPA for 14- 30 MHz at 90 feet.

WARC band  rotatable dipole at 30 ft.

 M 2 5 element 6M beam at 95 ft. to work with my 4 element at 30 ft. (Now all I need is some propagation on the Magic Band.)

Two Green Heron Rotor Controllers make turning the beams fun!

Two element phased wire array for 160M with 72 radials

1/4 wave sloper for 160M off the tower

Various switched short Beverage receiving antennas

A Palstar HF- AUTO  antenna tuner enables me to use the wires on many other bands

Two meter beam at 20 feet

Station administration:  DX Lab Suite by Dave, AA6YQ- The BEST by far!

Contest software by Scott N3FJP makes it easy!

 I am QRV from 160 M through 2 Meters. I spend most of my time at the two ends of the spectrum. I have worked 282 countries on Topband and 112 on 6M. On 18 Nov.2001 finished 6 meter WAS. Received 6M DXCC certificate #1053 on 11 October 2011. Tougher than 160M DXCC to acheive. My latest interest is RTTY/ PSK31 using just the K3. It is fun and challenging. On 16 February 2012 I received Digital DXCC # 3098. This was an all LoTW DXCC. I received the 275 country endorsement in August of 2014. I received the 300 country endorsement in December of 2016. I have worked 305 on digital modes to date. 

Received  6M VUCC #2411 in August 2016.

Acheived #1 Top of Honor Roll Mixed with 354/340 in September 2012.

Acheived 10 band DXCC 160-6M.

I have operated as G0/K3SME from Reading England and 7J1AJN/3 from Osaka, Japan.

I enjoy exchanging paper QSL cards.  I upload to LoTW and Clublog regularly.

I hope to work you soon.




If you have already worked a DX station on a band/mode, why do you need to clutter up the pileup by working him again?

Put your ego aside and let those hams work the station who really need it. That is Ham Spirit!
