First licensed as KN6TUP in Pine Valley, CA. in 1958. Moved to Kansas in 1959 and received call sign K0TAO. Joined U.S.Air Force in June 1959 with boot camp in San Antonio, technical training as an Aircraft Mechanic at Amarillo AFB. Sent to K.I.Sawyer AFB in northern Michigan on January 1, 1960. About 1962 i received the call W8BPV. 1965 brought a transfer to Germany and the new call sign DL5LS. Operated various 5A2/5A1 stations in Libya while TDY there between 1965 and 1968. Left the Air Force in 1968 and went back to California picking up the call of W6KQL. A move back to Kansas in 1972 brought me W0OGH in 1972 which i will keep until i go operate the big rig upstairs. In 1984 i transferred to Arizona where i worked until retiring in 2001.

December 2015 i decided to get out of the heat and rat race of the big city.  I bought a 5 acre plot of land in SE Arizona where it is much cooler, quieter and much less populated.  I currently have two towers up with Yagi antennas for 20, 15 and 6 Meters.  A third tower will be installed soon for the 10M beam.  This tower will also support antennas for 440 and one end of a 160 meter wire

I like chasing DX on the HF bands and also 6 meter SSB and CW. My main radio is an Elecraft K3. I also have a very nice Johnson Viking II with VFO that i pair up with a rebuilt R-388 for use on 40M AM.  I'm also a fan of the Maritime Radio Historical Society which operates KPH on Saturdays and special nights during the year.  Knowing thier history makes thier CW signal most melodius to the ears of true believers.  They also broadcast on Saturdays for several hours using 60WPM RTTY.  I also monitor the 472 kc MF frequencies for CW, WSPR and JT9 signals as well as listen for NDB signals.  FOr the NDB signals i use an old WWII BC-453 receiver which really hears well down there.  However it is not stable enough for the digital modes.

I am now using WSJT-X on JT-X mode.  The new version is simple enough for even me to understand and operate!  Kinda slow but interesting to use especially on 6M where i worked EA8DBM the other day running 25W.
