I was born 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 college and moved to the US a few years later. I was operating as /W8 for a while in Michigan but my 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 (mostly JT65 and PSK31).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I enjoy operating from the back yard with a solar powered station. The power source is a portable 45w three-panel assembly with a small garden tractor battery. My solar rig is a Ten-Tec Argosy running about 25w into a 10-40m Windom antenna.

I prefer to QSL via LoTW. Bureau and eQSL are also accepted. I'll QSL direct within the US upon request.
