Ham Member Lookups: 24334

 

I started my radio hobbies in Finland. I first started shortwave listening when I was 12 in December, 1980 and got my amateur radio novice licence in May, 1983 when I was 14. I upgraded to general class year later in 1984 (general class is the highest class in Finland with all the privilegies). My call was OH6EE (quick call for CW).

I moved to U.S.A. in 1996 and finally took the US exams in February 2004 (all elements in one session) and received my extra class license.

When I'm not working on ham bands nor working, I'll most likely mess with linux/Internet servers, BCL (see http://www.hard-core-dx.com ) or spend time with my wife and son.

I operating mostly from Stanford Amateur Radio Club station in Palo Alto. The county in that case is Santa Clara, CA. Well, how can you tell if I'm there? Usually if my signal is booming and strong, most likely I'm operating from the club station.

My areas of interest in the ham radio:

1) QSLing (paper or LoTW). Working on next levels of DXCC (see http://www.w6rk.com/dxcc.html ) and USA-CA CW (~ 2300 worked, about 1900 confirmed ).

2) DXing

3) county hunting (CW only)

4) FISTS

5) VE

6) Using Internet for Ham radio

7) contesting -- this is getting more serious now... they warned me about it and I didn't believe.

8) Digital modes (PSK31/PSK63/MFSK/RTTY so far but would like to try Hell, Throb, etc)
