I was born and raised in Oslo, Norway and was introduced to ham radio at the age of 12 by LA4Y (SK). I was a SWL until I was old enough to get a license as LA8OH at age 16.

I emigrated to Canada after graduating from Chalmers University in Gothenburg, Sweden and moved to the US a few years later. I was operating as /W8 for a while in Michigan but my busy job (broadcast engineer) and local antenna restrictions ended my ham radio activities.

In 2012 I decided to get a US license and get back into what had been one of my favorite hobbies. I started as KD8VPP in Ohio and later changed my call to W8NOR (-way). I'm now semi-retired in Tucson, Arizona.

 

I'm active mainly on CW on 10-80m with a Yaesu FT-DX1200 and a K4KIO hexagonal beam on a Rohn telescoping mast for 10m-20m. I use a Windom for 40m and 80m, and a dipole for 30m. I also have a ground mounted 14AVQ vertical with about two dozen radials.

With the solar cycle heading toards minimum I have started working digital (JT65/JT9/FT8). FT8 is becoming my favorite digital mode. It's a little challenging but also fun and rewarding. I have a Yaesu FT-450D dedicated to digital but also use it as a CW rig on vacation and operating from my back yard, NPOTA style.

I upload frequently to LoTW and QRZ and less frequently to eQSL. I'll QSL direct within the US upon request.
