I've been licensed since 1975 and was known as one of the DG gang. The reason for the DG gang was that there was six of us that sat for our license test and we were all issued WB6DG...and some following character, except for me, I was issued WB6DFW and still was considered part of the DG gang.

I was involved with packet BBS operation for many years. I got hooked on packet radio when I purchased my Pakratt PK232 and loved seeing the blinking light letting me know that I had mail. Once the packet bug wore off I was able to use the controller for HF operation, mainly on AMTOR, PACTOR, and RTTY.

I am an avid DXer operating CW and the digital modes. Most of you would recognize my old call WB6DFW but now very happy to be issued KQ6K. My new e-mail address is kq6k at (use @ sign in place of "at" ) pacbell.net. My URL is located at www.kq6k.com...visit when you can.

My present base station operation consists of a Yaesu FTDX5000D and using a G5RV jr at almost 15 feet.. I've been experimenting on 10 Meter AM (what a blast). I've also discovered that there is a mode called SSB. Now having fun operating there also. I also enjoy the six meter band when open, maybe I'll hear you there.

Recently I've gotten hooked on the FT-8 mode. What a blast and I want to thank the ops that are uploading the Q's to LOTW. I am having great success with confirmations on LOTW versus some of the other modes. Thanks again.

The image that I have recently added is my completely redone shack. It took ME about three months this summer (2012) to complete and let me tell you, what a dynamite place to operate. I added an accordian type pull down shade and make a nice darkened operating position when the bright sunshine is screaming in.

Hope to work you on the bands.
