I was born in Iowa City, Iowa in 1937, and was first licensed as WN0QQG in 1951. In 1952 I received my General Class ticket and in 1966 my Extra Class. After graduating from high school in 1955 I entered the Naval Reserve through Surface Division 9-3 in Iowa City. I started my two years of active duty in February of 1957 as a Radioman 3rd class. At the end of my two years, I was a Radioman 2nd class and shipped over into the regular Navy. I served on aircraft carriers, a minesweeper and an amphibious ship. I also served at various shore commands including Italy, Guam and Northern Ireland. I retired on 30 November 1982 as a LCDR (LDO), Communications Specialist.

While in the Navy I operated from a number of military amateur radio club stations and from the USS ACME (MSO-508) and the USS GUAM (LPH-9). On the Guakm i operated from the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Canal Zone and Peru (as OA3G). While on the Island of Guam I operated from KG6AAY at the U.S. Naval Commuication Sation Guyam. In 1966 and 1967 we operated in the CQ WW SSB constes and won the Oceana Continent both years and in 1966 finished 7th in the world and in  1967 9th. Other operaters included Cliff Moore K6KII and Marv Wines, W7AE. There were others in these efforts and I simply do not remember their names or calls. If they read this and notify me,  will certainly make a correction.

After leaving he Navy I was government contractor for 25 years, working mostly with Navy shipboard switching systems, design of shore communications installations and project and program management.

 I was inactive for a number of years and returned to the air in March of 2005. I prefer the digital modes, including CW and occasionally operate SSB.
