I was licensed in 1977 as a Novice with the callsign WD8MCN.  I made 2 CW contacts the first year I was licensed. I was asked by a friend to travel to Detroit so he could get his General ticket.  I tagged along and passed my 13 wpm , General and Advanced license exams without the benefit of any study guides.  Damn lucky I guess.

I obtained callsign KE8JG in 1987 and upgraded to Extra Class in 1992 with the call WI8W.  I only recently obtained callsign KI8W (09/13/2016)

I am active both on CW and RTTY.  My primary interest now is RTTY Contesting.

I am a member since 1977 of the QRP Amateur Radio Club International and for 8 years I was their Awards Manager.  My QRPARCI member Number is 4015

I am a member of the North American CW QRP Club and my Member Nunber is 0098.

I am a member of the Grand Rapids Amateur Radio Association.  As of January 1, 2017, I am also the club website administrator.
