I was first licensed as WN6GFJ in 1964. Back then you held a Novice license for one year and couldn't renew it. We were also limited to 75 watts and crystal controlled transmitters. My first station was a Harvey- Wells TBS-50D transmitter, National NC-270 receiver and dipole antenna. By 1965, I became WB6GFJ and held that call until 1997 when I switched to K6GFJ. I enjoy chasing DX, Contests, IOTA, HF QRP, plus OSCAR activities on the HEO satellites. Digital mode are another intereest of mine so I operate RTTY, FT8, JT65 and PSK. Other calls I have held include KH6GJW, KL7FFT, XE0GFJ, 3D2FB, ZK1XE, ZL0AKO, VK3BZZ, and FO0FB. If you need a card for any of my operations using any of these calls, feel free to send me an SASE or an SAE with return postage and your QSL card. I've been chasing DX since 1963, and I'm on the DXCC Honor Roll for Mixed. Currently, I need only P5 to have all of the current entities. I used to be QSL manager for a number of stations, but lost all of their logs in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.

Organizations I belong to include ARRL (Life Member), A1-OP, AMSAT-NA (Life member), QCWA (Life Member), NCCC (Life Member), NCDXC (Life Member), RSGB, CDXC and INDEXA. I contribute to the NCDXF annually. I was a member of the TX3X team that went to Chesterfield Island in October 2015. Details of our DXpedition can be found at WWW.TX3X.COM.

I have held the following positions: SEC-SV, SM-SCV, Pacific Division Vice-Director (1981). I am president of the NCDXC (two terms) and past president of Project OSCAR, Inc.

My current station includes: Elecraft K3, KPA-500, KAT-500, IC-275H, IC-475A, IC-706MKIIG, FT-817ND and a microHAM microKEYER II for digital modes. I'm using the DXLab suite of software for logging, N1MM+ for contests and WSJT-X for JT65 and FT8.

Antennas: J-Pole antennas on VHF and UHF, a three element Steppir with the 30/40 meter trombone, and an 80 meter inverted "L".The dipole you see in the photo has been replaced with the inverted "L".

In June 2004 I lost both of my kidneys and was on dialysis until June 4, 2011. I was fortunate have a successful kidney transplant operation on June 5, 2011.
