First licensed as a novice in Riverside, CA, as WN6AYK in 1962.  Upgraded to Technician, then General in 1963 as WB6AYK.  Did mostly CW DXing on 40m into the Pacific and Asia (primarily Japan) during junior high school and high school.  Let license expire while focused on math and engineering undergraduate and graduate studies.  In 1972, visited the FCC office in Denver, CO, and took the Novice, Technician, General, Advanced and Extra exams (written and code) one morning and early afternoon.  Received WB0WNU which was later exchanged for W0YK during the initial incentive licensing release of 1x2 callsigns in 1976.

Found lots of DX during contests, then got hooked on contesting itself.  Learned a lot in the early days at the K0RF multi-multi. Since then, contesting has been my primary activity with some DXing in between.  Thanks to a club effort to win the club competition gavel in ARRL RTTY Round-Up in 2004, I got hooked on RTTY contesting on top of my CW contesting.  Have been traveling to Aruba since 2005 for the RTTY Round-Up, CQ WPX RTTY and CQ WW RTTY each year as P49X.  I also join some CW multi-ops with W6LD as P40L once every couple of years or so in ARRL DX, CQ WPX and/or CQ WW.

I am the director for the CQ RTTY contests: CQ WW RTTY and CQ WPX RTTY.  I'm also the contest manager for the NCJ RTTY Sprint. I co-sponsor the Ten-Meter RTTY Contest with Don AA5AU.

I'm licensed in Japan as 7J1ACJ and have operated from Syria (YK0A), Jamaica (6Y4A, etc). and HC8.

QSL via LotW is strongly preferred.  If paper QSL is needed, send SASE or SAE+$2.
