Please call me "Riki".
I was first licensed as KN6THN (California) in 1956. From 1957 my US call was K7ADD (Nevada) which was later changed to K7NJ. I've been licensed as 4X4NJ since 1961 and often used 4X3A in contests.
I moved to Israel in 1969, and resettled in the USA (Utah) in 2004.
Main interests in ham radio include: CW, 160M, contests, DX, antennas, propagation, & weak signal reception.
I'm a member of FOC, CWops, A-1 Operator Club, and a Life Member of ARRL.
Awards held as 4X4NJ include: Number 1 DXCC Honor Roll, 40 Zone 160M WAZ & 160M WAS. As of the end of 2003 before moving back to the USA, I'd worked 255 countries on 160M from 4X. 160M WAS from 4X4NJ - achieved long before the age of email and Low Frequency DX chatrooms - was by far the most challenging and difficult of any of these.
I've participated in several DXpeditions: 3B6RF, C31CL, HB0XVR.
Not wanting to start over again in DXing from the USA, I've decided to concentrate mainly on contesting. In the past I had many first place awards for single band 160M entries (as 4X4NJ or 4X3A) in the CQWW, CQWPX, CQ160, and Stew Perry Top Band Challenge DX contests. I'm also very active from my CW mobile station as K7NJ/M.
Professionally, I'm an electrical engineer. Prior to my retirement in 2014, I was employed by Wilson Electronics in St. George, Utah - a major manufacturer of booster amplifiers and antennas for cell phones.
