Ham Member Lookups: 25177


First licensed in 1982 as KA8PTL then as KF8EP and now as W8LR. I hold DXCC Honor Roll and have been a (SWL)DXer long before becoming a Ham. I have, since my childhood, been amazed at listening to signals from remote places. I am an avid DXer and also a VHF/UHF contester. I Have been fortunate to have done well and won in divisional CQWW single op efforts and have been a member of many winning national and divisional VHF/UHF contest teams. Presently I hold a Ph.D. in psychology, and an M.Div., and function as a counselor in my local community.

My HF DX wish is to mount a DXpedition to one of the remote Pacific Islands.

My VHF/UHF current activity surrounds working toward VUCC via the ISS. I was very active on 437.55 when ISS was on UHF and was only using only a 5w Knwd TH-D72A and an Arrow II Hand Held Yagi. Fortunately Dave Thomson VA7THO, who also used a TH-D72A and an Arrow antenna, and I set a new ISS UHF Digipeater distance record during that time. It was not an easy task and I publically want to thank Dave for his efforts in making this event happen this past March.

So if you see me spotted on the ARISS station heard list or a real time packet reporting system it is me in real time and not a beacon. If you do hear me please send me a signal or postion report or message!
