Ham Bio:  I have been a ham "on" and "off" for many years. I was a Ham/SWL as a young teenager  but never got on the air except for a few qso’s at an Elmer’s house. I heard my first ham radio signals on a Zenith "Carosel" portable radio that my dad had. It was strictly a traditional AM radio, but if you tuned to the top end of the dial you could hear hams chatting on 160 meters AM. I distinctly remember the first ham radio conversation I heard was between two hams discussing the sinking of the USS Threser submarine that had been announced that day (1963).  That gave me the bug to be a ham. My first rigs were a Knight Kit "Span Master" and later a borrowed Hallicrafters S-38.  At that point I got my Popular Electronics WPE SWL call sign (don't remember?)  and even passed a novice exam, but never got on the air (also don't remember call). I explain my loss of memory and interest in radio to the discovery of girls. My interest in radio went dormant until 1972. Got involved again with the call WN8QDE and spent my time on the novice bands. Had lots of fun, but yet again my interest fell off until around 1980. At that point I took another test for a technician class license. I passed and was issued the call KA8IUP. But yet again dragged my feet and did not become active until 1985. At that point I jumped back in “whole hog” and have been very active ever since. I upgraded to “extra class” in 1986 and was assigned the call NU8Z.

Radio Activity: I work all modes, but mostly CW and digital modes. I’m an avid DX’er and a “casual” contester. I’m on the #1 DX Honor Roll having worked and confirmed all DXCC countries. I have the DXCC on 9 bands and I’m inching up on 2650 band/countries confirmed (2616). I also enjoy rag chewing on any mode and like chasing awards.  I keep my DX skills active by participating in the CQ DX Marathon every year. The goal is simple. See how many countries and CQ zones you can work every year. You start from scartch in January. I also enjoy playing aroung with computers. They are a natural fit with the radio hobby.
