First licensed in 1962 as WN9EWZ, then as WA9EWZ, and now W9EWZ. Photos below: Left, SWLing in 1961 with Heathkit AR-3 receiver and Q-multiplier. Right, circa 1967, Johnson Viking Valiant II and Hammarlund HQ-170A.


I enjoy CW, chasing DX and the fast pace of contesting. Most of my efforts are focused on 6, 2 and 160 meters. Especially interested in Es, tropo and aurora. Improving my station on 432 is a continuing project. I am a newbie to 160 meter DXing to which I have quickly become addicted. Top band DXCC total, as I begin my fourth year on that band, is 156. I subscribe to the DX Code of Conduct and welcome suggestions for improving my signal and operating.

My station has been relocated from a downtown Chicago high-rise (where I operated with indoor antennas) to rural Rock County in southern Wisconsin (EN52kr) about 10 miles west of Janesville. For now, I continue to work in Chicago as a research professor in an orthopaedic surgery department, but I'm based in our country home in Wisconsin and finally have some real antennas (7 el on 6m, 12/12 el on 2m, 28 el on 432, numerous dipoles for hf, and multiple inverted V and inverted L antennas on 160m).

I am an active member of the Madison DX Club and the Greater Beloit Amateur Radio Club, and a life member of the ARRL and the Central States VHF Society. I am also a member of the Society of Midwest Contesters, the Badgers Contesters, NCDXA and the UKSMG.

Please QSL direct or via the bureau. I enjoy sending my own cards and collecting cards from others. I would very much appreciate receiving yours. Do send me an email if I have missed getting a card out to you. Let me know if you need confirmation on LOTW, and I will be happy to upload our QSO.

73, Bob
