I was first licensed in 1960 as KN9ARZ (Novice Class) and after upgrading, have held the call K9ARZ for over fifty-five years. My primary mentor was the late William J. Nolan, W9TQL (former chief engineer for WLS RADIO, Chicago), Bill taught me how to build transmitters and amplifiers, and for this I am forever grateful. Since then, I have built scores of transmitters, RF amplifiers, receivers, and antenna tuners.  My primary rig consists of a Kenwood  TS-590S backed up by an TS-570DG,  a Drake L4 Amplifier, and a Mosley TA-53M  up 37 feet.  Special thanks to Carson McAfee, ZS8C for his contact and QSL which put me over the top for Mixed DXCC Honor Roll:  350 Total/334 Current.



My primary interests in amateur radio, center around DXing on all modes. I am a member of the Northern Illinois DX Association. Because of my age and years in radio I also like radios that "glow in the dark" and this is why I joined the Antique Radio Club of Illinois. I am also a life member of the Fox River Radio League (Batavia, IL) and a ARRL certified volunteer examiner. I currently hold an Amateur Extra-Class Radio License (20 WPM version), and a Radar endorsed Commercial Radio-Telephone License (GROL, formerly 2nd Class Commercial) . I am a retired Geographer and hold B.S. & M.S. in Geography from Northern Illinois University.
