I began amateur radio at age 14 in 1950 with the call W4QCW. In 1954 I was on the first Navassa Island DXpedition as KC4AB. That same year I earned my first DXCC. In 1967 I guest operated at EA9EJ in Rio de Oro and in 1969 I was a member of the K4IA/KC4 Navassa Dxpediton. Later that year I received  the #1 5BDXCC award. In 1977 I became W4DR. My wife of 60 years is N4CFL and a surviving son is KK4HJ. In 2001 I was a member of the YK9A DXpedition to Syria. This same year I was awarded the first, and as of 2007, only Clinton B DeSoto Cup for the most documented Band/Entities (DXCC countries) on 160 through 6 meters. I am a member of CQ Magazine's DX Hall of Fame and qsl manager for Jon Rudy who has operated from A2/ZS5UZ, C91CO, DU9/N0NM, 3DA0CA and 4W3ZZ. Please QSL direct only with SASE,$ or valid IRC. My profession was Dentistry and I  served on the faculty of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry for 57 years. I retired completely June 2016.  I am active on all bands, but can most often be found on 160, 60 and 6 meters. My most exciting QSO in 64 years of DX'ing was JT1CO worked in Dec. 2009 on 160 to complete WAZ on top band. Read about the KC4AB dxpedition in October 2012 QST, "DX Determination" pages 76-77.   The K4IA/KC4 operation is documented in December 1969 QST, "Navassa Revisited" pages 56-58.  Since the K1N operation Navassa  is not so rare at least for another 10 years.  MY ON THE AIR NAME:  BOB
