I go by MIKE.

If we met on the air it was probably a SOTA contact.

I first got my license in October 2007 for my work with Search & Rescue. As a personal challenge I upgraded to Extra and switched to the Vanity call KX6A.

I did little with my license until the summer of 2015 when I stumbled across SOTA – Summits on the Air, a program aimed at those who enjoy hiking, peak bagging and radio. That did it for me, I was hooked. SOTA fits perfectly with my enthusiasm for outdoor adventures. I quickly attended a few presentations, met some extremely helpful and friendly fellow hams and then went about acquiring the equipment and knowledge to get going.

I’m excited about the hobby and am anxious to share it with my 3 young sons Nick N6NGG, Will N6WMG and Jack (who is still a bit young for his license at 9 years old.) 

As a diehard lightweight backpacker I learned CW so I that I can use lightweight CW radios on our longer trips and hikes. It kills me to see all the summits I’ve been to which have yet to be activated for SOTA.

I post about my radio adventures on my personal site: KX6A.com

LOTW POLICY:  I upload all contacts the same day or very soon after unless traveling. For SOTA activations I create a new "station location" for the summit so that so that grid square, state, county, park etc are correct for the contact.
