Known as "Ray" on the air, I was first licensed in 1957 with novice callsign KN0LUP, upgrading to general class in a few months, becoming K0LUP. I received my Extra Class license on the very day that incentive licensing went into effect in 1968. As I moved around the country, I held two other callsigns, WA3NLG in Dover, DE and W9MGH in Indianapolis, IN. Later, I received K0LUP back for a short time. In 1977, I became W0DQ.  Current age 74.

I participated both in Army and USAF MARS, graduated from Iowa State University in 1965, served as a communications officer in the Air Force during the Viet Nam era, had a career in commercial broadcasting as an on-air personality, program director and early on, did some engineering, later starting a second career as a real estate broker. I am now retired but am still providing some real estate referral services.

My main rig is a Kenwood TS-590SG backed up with a trusty TS-430S.


Due to deed restrictions, the only HF antenna at my home QTH is a DX Engineering 43 ft vertical, which is painted olive drab to make it hard to spot at the back of the lot near Beaver Creek. The good news is that it has about 40 radials. Also, ground conductivity is good in this area. I have been pleased with it's performance.

CW is my favorate mode and I enjoy the challenge of CW QRP with a YouKits HB-1B Mk3 40 thru15 meters, running 4 watts, or you might work me on my old Heathkit HW-8 at 2 watts.  I also run some PSK-31.


In case you hear a "chirp" on my signal, this is "CJ."

I sometimes operate portable /7 from a second home in Sedona, AZ
