QSL:  I am using LoTW as preferred QSL method, uploading logs frequently.  I also respond to all QSL requests via direct mail (no SASE req'd for USA & Canada) and W7 buro (DX ). 


From a young age I was always interested in electronics and always had some type of project or old TV set to take apart. I read the Radio Amateurs Handbook and Popular Electronics and was always interested in Radio but for some reason never got an amateur radio license. But I did enjoy listening to AM and shortwave radio DX at night and enjoyed hearing the music rolling into Kansas City from places afar. I kept up my interest in electronics, radio, audio, and computers and eventually graduated from the Unversity of Missouri at Rolla (Now Missouri University of Science & Technology) with BS and MS Degrees in Electrical Engineering. In my profesional career I've been mainly involved with the design, development, and management of airborne navigation, communications, and entertainment equipment at Harris Corp, King Radio Corp, Arnav, Universal Avionics, Airshow, and finally Rockwell Collins - retiring in Dec 2015.

I was first licensed as KB7ZTV in 1993 when I lived in Redmond, WA. Became very active and member of Redmond Top Key Contest Club (now Radio Club of Redmond) and through excellent Elmering from club members (AC2K, W7QC, W7FU & others) improved my CW skills and upgraded to Extra class in 1995. I took advantage of the first Vanity callsign lottery and shortened my call to KB7V in 1996. 

I moved to Southern California in 2001 and was active for several years. Operating from a small SoCal lot with CCRs is a challenge but I managed to get a signal on the air with attic antennas, stealthy wires and a vertical. I fell into inactivity with the wane of the solar cycle in the last half of the decade but have recently been re-invigorated in the hobby.  I enjoy DXing and contesting on most bands and modes and have developed an interest in digital communications, RTTY, BPSK, and JT9/JT65.

I am a life member of the ARRL, ODXG and Pacific DXers, and a member of INDEXA, NCDXF, SCCC, Rockwell Collins ARC, and South Orange Amateur Radio Association (SOARA). I also participate in San Diego Contest Club (NX6T) operations.

Current HF station equipment includes FT-2000, TS-870S, and IC-706 MkII transceivers, AL-80B amplifier, vertical (20-17-15-12-10m), inverted-L (80-40-30m), delta loop (10m) and half-square (10m)antennas.

During the ARRL Centenial Celebration I also enjoyed operating CW, RTTY, and SSB at NX6T in support of the ARRL W1AW/6 operation Feb 12-18, 2014.

I'm looking forward to work you on the bands, whether it be DX, contest, or casual QSO!
