Ham Member Lookups: 16575


I was first licensed in 1963 as WN6HDG at age 15.  I attended a licensing class put on by the Lockheed Amateur Radio Club (W6LS) in Burbank California.  My Novice station consisted of a Viking Adventurer and later a Viking Ranger 2 along with a Hammarlund HQ-180.  I contacted 49 states (missed R.I.) & 43 countries as a Novice.  This set the stage for contesting & DX-ing for years to come.  In February 1964 I passed my general exam and the call changed to WB6HDG.  A Viking Thunderbolt was added shortly thereafter.  I upgraded to Advanced in 1975 and then to Extra in 1984 when I became WB6L.

Shown in the picture are Jake & Jasmine (K9LAB & VO2LAB) my Black Labrador retrievers.  Both Labs became silent barks around their 15th birthday.  We currently have a Yellow & Black Lab.  I keep this picture up because the original was lost.

My operating interests are DX-ing & contesting.  Honor Roll (Mixed & SSB) & 7BDXCC.  My favorite bands are 10, 12, & 17 meters.  I operate 3.5 -50 MHz, both SSB & CW & now just recently RTTY.  I collect Collins Radio equipment along with amateur radio handbooks & manuals.  My station consists of an ICOM 7600 & 756 Pro2, complete Collins KWM-2A line, Henry 2K Classic-X along with Heil microphones and headsets. I have Hy-Gain mono band antennas for 6/10/15/20 meters. Dipoles on 80, 75, 40, 30, 17, & 12 meters.  I have been operating continuously since 1963 (even 1967-1974 while in the military) and would be glad to exchange QSL cards.  Please QSL via bureau or direct with SASE.  I also use LOTW.
