Trustee / QSL manager for KL5DX (Alaska Contest Club)

I first got intersted in electronics when my dad started me on the Experiment of the Month Club and he noticed I liked the electrical experiments. He noticed an ad for a ham radio club and enrolled me in it. I was 12 years old. At 13 I got my novice licence, WN5BIR and away I went! I got WAS and WAC and about 40 countries as a novice. My 2nd QSO was XE2PAZ which immediatly got me intersted in DX. I don't remember when I first got interested in CW and contesting, but it was early on, I think competing with David, WN5ZNY (later N5JJ - SK) as he was a classmate in junior high and high school and we I was always trying to out do him on CW, but never could. To this day, he was one of the finest CW ops I ever knew.

I worked alot of DX and contests through the '70s and '80s but other things of course got in the way at times and my operating was on-again/off-again through the years but I think I am back to stay. After being tired of not being able to put up a decent antenna in a deed restricted community, I bought a 2-acre lot slightly in the country with no restrictions at all (except no drilling for oil, no mining for coal, and no junk yard businesses!) 

Current line up of equipment is:
Elecraft K3/P3 with video board (upgraded with the latest hardware/software)
ETO Alpha 78 3-Holer with N4UQ Modifications and Upgrades
Dentron MT-20 3KW Tuner in shack
4-el SteppIR Yagi @ 75 ft. with 30/40 meter trombone element and addl. 6m elements on a Hy-Gain HG70HD tower, Hy-Gain Tailtwister Rotator with 5 yards of concrete.
Hy-Gain 18HT Hi-Tower
Green Heron RT-20 rotor controller for the Hy-Gain Tailtwister
LP-100A Digital Vector Wattmeter
microHAM micro KEYER II
Schurr Paddle

I run LOGic9 for day to day logging and N1MM+ for contesting.



I love to get QSL cards direct or via the buro. But please...do not send me another QSL if I have already confirmed you on a paticular band/mode. If I have worked and confirmed you on 20CW, DO NOT send me another 20 CW QSL card...I WILL NOT RETURN IT!

For direct QSL, send an SAE and either an IRC or at least $2 to cover return postage. 

Of course, I always upload to LoTW and eQSL. Please do so also.
