Originally licensed (KN6DGW) in 1953. Continuously active except for 4 yr period while serving in the USAF in SE Asia. Additional calls held: KL7ETK, WA5SNP, HS1FJ. Retired from communications/computer engineering in Jan 2000 ... currently active on VHF/UHF FM and on HF, mainly in contests and mainly on CW. Clubs: Sierra Foothils ARC, Northern California Cactus Radio Association (K6SRA - part of Cactus Intertie), Northern California Contest Club, Sierra Nevada ARS, SOC, FISTS, and CWops.  I'm active in Summits On The Air, more and more as a chaser rather than an activator, the result of old orthopedic injuries and advancing age.

After 38+ years on 5 acres in Auburn CA, we have finally sold the "farm" to our oldest daughter and son-in-law, and moved to a suburban home in Sparks NV.  While we have an HOA and they would frown on a request for a 70 ft tower, a flag pole in back is just fine.  That will be happening in the Spring of 2016, or maybe not. I purchased an 80-10 EFHW and ran it along the back fence on electric fence insulators.  It's working pretty good for western US QSO's.  I'll continue to be one of the few operating W7RN [w7rn.org] remotely with my K3, which poses the problem ... which of the 23 available antennas to select. :-)  The Coefficient of Aerial Aluminum at the Comstock Memorial Station is very high.

I'll be getting some new QSL cards as soon as I can come up with a design.
