I first became a ham in my early teens in the late 1950's, influenced by my best friend Jim. I became KN8KYO, then K8KYO. My Heathkit AT-1 and Hallicrafters SX-99 gave me the best geography lessons I could ever have. College and competitive swimming then took up my time and I became inactive for many years.

The bug bit again when when I found myself stationed at Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station in Hawaii in the early 70's and I became KH6IHR. What a great place to hunt DX with my Heathkit SB-102.

Career then took me to the University of Alabama in Birmingham as an associate professor of optometry and a new call of WD4ANW. Then a move to the Puget Sound area of Washington state in 1980 and another new call of KE7DZ.

Again, a good friend (Al - K1ALL) piqued my interest and I became active in 2009, with a beautiful QTH in Seabeck, WA, near the Olympic National Park. My main rig is a Kenwood TS-590. Current antennas include a home brew 80M "Carolina Windom" up in the trees at about 50 ft., an R-8 Vertical, and an end fed long wire. Other rigs include a Kenwood TS-940S and a rehabilitated Heathkit SB-102. I do like the nostalgia of big dials and glowing tubes so I've also picked up another Hallicrafters SX-99 and a Heathkit AT-1 and VF-1, as well as a Command ARC-5 WWII surplus 7Mhz receiver to take me all the way back to the 50's again! Also collected two Heathkit bamps: an SB-200 and SB-221. I have been known to turn them on occasionally, just to burn off the dust!

I primarily work CW and have worked over 200 countries since becoming active again.

Oh - I'm still swimming competitively with the US Masters Swimming Program.

I look forward to meeting lots of new ham friends and furthering that geography lesson!
