To my amateur friends , & whom may be interested I go by the name" DON" on the radio. I started as a Novice in the fall of 1978 with the call KA3BOJ, I worked CW with a KNWD 520S & a long wire. With other interests, I really didn't do much on the radio till Fall of 1987, when I did a bit of studying , & about drove wife & kids crazy copying the W1AW code practice sessions. I did pass & get my Advance license in fall of 1987 thus the call KD3CA. I continued with the study & code practice, & in the spring of 1988 I got my EXTRA class license.

After getting my Extra class in spring of 1988 I put up a Telrex TB5EM tri- bander beam for 10,15, & 20 mtrs up 55 ft.  Added another rig KNWD 530 SP with VFO, I used a Vibroplex paddle for CW. & later added a QRP rig Heathkit HW7 with 3 watts out & used what was called a HAM KEY . All these radios still work fine along with the beam.

 I later added another rig ,Yaesu FT 1000MP & did very well running DX ( 131 countries confirmed), WAS & the IOTA Islands with this rig running 100 watts or less. Being very active till conditions dropped out a bit in 2005 , & I started back into other interests , like playing Golf, Building & flying Radio control Airplanes, & Bow & Arrow hunting.  

 Regained interest & started back on CW in Nov 2012.   I enjoy rag chews,  quite active in SKCC, & NAQCC events. I'm now mostly CW & QRP  with    latest rigs   Elecraft K2,  KX3 , and a Ten Tec Arogonaut V- 516. Have  ( 2) OCF Windoms( one @ 33ft) &( one @ 50 ft ).   My keys,   J38,   Speed-X  ,  Viz Cootie,  Vibroplex Bug,  &  Begali HST.   I do QSL direct & via SKCC Buro   72 &73 to all.


I'm a life member of ARRL,,  Member of SKCC # 10175T   ,, Fists #  16136 and Naqcc # 6602
