I was raised in Oregon and had early interest in radio in the boy scouts. I joined the Marines where I became a radio telegraph operator. I was licensed as WN7VLU in February of 1974 and became WA7VLU when I upgraded to General Class. I operated in Yakima, Washington for about 5 years and then became inactive until 1992 when I retested to become KE4KPM. I upgraded to Advanced class as KR4XW then to Extra and obtained vanity call N4NQ which I like for CW. I moved to Lawrenceville Georgia in 1987 when I left the Navy, where I worked for Rockwell Missile Systems for a while then for DeKalb Mental Health in computer systems from which job I retired in July of 2010. In addition to HAM radio I am an avid gardener. I am not so much good at it as I enjoy growning lots of different kinds of vegetables and experimenting with different types. I love reading mystery novels and generally read between three and five books a month.



My wife and I enjoy camping at the beach and I try to take my KX3 along for a little outdoors hamming when I can. My lovely daughter lives out in Santa Barbara, California. We wish we could get out there to visit more often. Its a beautiful place.


I am a casual CW op trying to improve my proficiency. I still can only recognize characters and not words. I use an Elecraft K3 as my primary rig with the P3 panadapter and the KPA 500 amplifier. My backup/field portable rig is the Elecraft K1 with which I use a 33 ft end fed wire tossed as high as I can get it. My station antennasis a full wave 80 meter loop at 45 feet which tunes nicely on all bands but 160 meters.



I am a participating member of the Gwinnett Amateur Radio Society, Gwinnett ARES, North Georgia QRP Club, Southeast DX Society and the Quarter Century Wireless society National and Georgia chapter. I enjoy the many different club events and the emergency preparedness exercises. I am also a VE enjoying helping others get into Ham Radio and hope they will enjoy it as much as I do.


You will find me mostly on 40 and 20 meters. Will gladly QSL to anyone who might need a card from Georgia, Gwinnett County.

My CW Ops number: 1611

My 10-10 number: 75727

My 070 Club Number is: 1181

My EPC Number is 12389

My SKCC Number is: 5432 T

My FISTS Number: 15429

My QRP-ARCI Number: 14457

My North American QRP CW Club Number: 5549

DXCC # 45,945

WAS # 57345

I do direct QSL, eQSL and LoTW and will always return QSL's 100%. I figure if I can afford to be in the hobby I can afford to send a card.
