Ham Member Lookups: 3989

 

I grew up in Gillette, Wy and received my Novice license in Dec 1977 with the callsign WB7UVB. My elmer was Bill Ewing, WA0KAQ (SK), who got me interested in ham radio, taught me morse code, and gave me my first exam. I upgraded to General in 1979 and received the callsign N7BDH. In 1981, I upgraded to Advanced and received the callsign KD7VI. In 1990, I moved to Tucson,AZ and was active for a time contesting and chasing DX. I upgraded to Amateur Extra in May 2012 and received my current call sign in Jan 2013. I enjoy CW and it has always been my primary operating mode.

In 2012 I started runnning QRP using an Elecraft K1 after being off the air for about 15 yrs. I sold that rig and bought an Elecraft KX-3 in March 2013. I have worked over 100 countries running QRP (CW) and I enjoy the challenge. I also enjoy QRP in the field, experimenting with different antennas and competing in domestic contests.

I became active as a Summits on the Air chaser and I earned my Shack Sloth award on Nov 8, 2015.  I had my first SOTA activation shortly thereafter with hopefully more to come.

On my QSL card, you will see a photo of some Saguaro cactus which are found in the Sonoran Desert and are a symbol of the southwest. Here are a few links for more information and some fun facts about the Saguaro:
