NOTE THAT THE LOG BELOW SHOWS CONTACTS THAT I HAVE SENT eQSL AND to LoTW

AS WELL AS QRZ.COM- - YOURS VIA SAME WILL BE GREAT. TNX, BOB

Born in Fresno, California DEC 4, 1941. Originally licensed as a Novice KN6VIB in Delano, CA in Nov. 1956 with my father, Mack Dorothy, as my Elmer. (W6UEL SK). Dad was a Broadcast Engineer at the VOA in Delano CA and other commercial radio stations in Los Angeles and Fresno.

Proud Life Member: ARRL - Member of many other groups.

I retired from Lockheed Martin Skunk Works in Los Angeles County Jan. 1, 2002 moving to Oregon Dec.16, 2003.

EQUIP: Almost all Yaesu. FT-990 for Digital and a FT-100D for Mobile and my FT-1000D / FL-7000 AMP for SSB/CW/RTTY.

Antennas: Yep, I have them.! GAP Titan Vertical and a very large Horizontal Loop at ~45 feet AGL.

Station in 1957 at age 16 - My dad built that nice and HEAVY Heathkit DX-100.

Above is the novice/general rig (and myself) in the 1957 timeframe and the Vibroplex "bug" was vintage even then.

 RX is a Hallicrafters S-85, purchassed from Dan Dietz  K 6 P K J (SK) for $25. I used it with a Q-Muliplier, much needed in those days!

73, de  Bob  w/60+ years in the Ham Radio hobby - sure has been fun. Latest operating mode is JT65/JT-9/FT8 using WSJT-X and JTAlert add-on. Always something new to learn and enjoy.
