Thanks for stopping by! At the right, you can see my latest log entries. Scroll down to the bottom for a map of stations worked and searchable log. If I am on the air, the log will show what frequency I am currently on.

QSL Policy

LoTW and eQSL uploaded regularly.

Direct cards answered direct. No IRC or green stamp required. Self addressed envelope always appreciated for DX QSLs to make sure my QSL gets to you, but not required.

Special Event Station

I operated W4D from May 10 through May 20, 2010. I also operated K4D from May 17, 2011 until May 25, 2011. QSLs for these calls for these times ONLY should be sent DIRECT ONLY via W4PG (SASE suggested) to the address listed above. This special 1X1 is for the Dayton Hamvention, which I attended and operated mobile while driving to Dayton from the home QTH in Florida. To see other special one by one calls, please click here:

 

1X1 Calls

 

 

Ham History

I was first licensed at age 12 as WN4RKU in July of 1970. I upgraded to general later that year becoming WB4RKU and now hold an extra class. As a young teenager I worked after school and weekends repairing radios and televisions. I saved my money to buy ham gear and antennas and talked my parents (now silent keys, both were hams) into putting up a 56’ tower in our front yard with a 3 ele tri-band quad! Little did I know how lucky I had it as a young ham! My father was K4DFW (original call) and when W4DFW came open, I obtained that call. I acquired W4PG in September of 2009.

I was net control for the Carolinas Net (CN) for several years on CW in the early 1970s and checked into the 4RN and EAN nets as needed. I enjoyed SSTV when it first became popular and was one of the first few stations in SC on SSTV back when SC on SSTV was real DX! I used audio tapes made from a flying spot scanner fed into the mic input. I occasionally operate PSK and other digital modes as well.

I currently listen much more than I talk. I enjoy DX and have just recently installed my first tower since that one when I was a kid, some 35 years later. The tower is a US Tower 89 foot crank up and foldover.

Personal

I hold dual medical and legal degrees. I represent physicians and other healthcare providers as personal legal counsel in medical malpractice cases. I am a Florida Supreme Court Certified Civil Circuit Mediator as well as Qualified Arbitrator. I also serve as volunteer counsel for the ARRL volunteer counsel program, assisting with building permits and HOA/CC&R issues. I am in the process of restarting my medical practice as well, which I practiced prior to obtaining my legal degreel. My XYL is a physician but has no interest in ham radio. She cooks. As long as I clean, she lets me play radio all I want.

I also enjoy flying sailplanes, also called gliders. Here is a self-portrait while flying at 27,000 feet over the Sierra Nevada mountains:
