  First licensed in 1965 as WN9SZN. Upgraded and became WA9WYB in 1967. Resided in the Chicago area until 1984 when my XYL, Robin, and I moved to the San Francisco bay area, finally settling in Alameda, CA. In July 2011, Robin retired from a nursing career at the University of California San Francisco and I retired from the City of San Francisco Radio Engineering Department and we moved to Hansville Washington. We began building our dream home on a one acre parcel over-looking Puget Sound. Kept the WA9 call until 1998 when I got tired of signing portable 6 and requested W6WYB. Then decided to get "vain" and applied for and received W6RS in August 2007.

UPDATE I: July 2, 2011 - Moved into a rental house in Hansville, WA while building our new home on the other side of town. Sadly, Off The Air!

UPDATE II: March 16th - 2012: We moved into our now completed, beautiful new cedar home in Hansville, WA.

UPDATE III: July 31, 2012 - Finally installed a SteppIR - Big IR vertical and got some LMR-600 run out to it so we have a "modest" station setup and I am FINALLY back on the air! Now the tower and beam project begins!:

UPDATE IV: June 14, 2013 - Erected an "AN Wireless" 80 HHD, 80 FootTower, Orion OR-2800 rotator and a SteppIR      DB-18E 10-40 Meter Dream  Beam.

UPDATE V: June 23, 2017 - Replaced the SteppIR DB-18E with a SteppIR DB-42 Dream Beam.

 


 

View down the boom of the antenna is facing Europe. Body of water is Puget Sound.

Current equipment is a Icom IC-7700 and IC-4KL Amp or Ameritron AL-1500 Amp.

I have always been fascinated by DXing and still find it the most enjoyable and chalanging part of the hobby.

Nothing gets the juices flowing like an "all time new one"
