From the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.



I am located in the small town of Pioneer, California, in Amador County. It's located between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe, 150 miles East of San Fransisco.




I have confirmed 304 Countries DXing, I have a mixed DXCC, Phone DXCC, Worked All States (WAS) and a 5 Band Worked All Continents (5BWAC) Awards, I am a Member of ARRL, The Northern California DX Club, and The Amador County Amateur Radio Club.

I have also enjoyed providing phone patch traffic for Antarctica and the Pacific Maritime Net.


Amateur Radio History:
  • I received my current call sign WK6RF on May 4th 2010.
  • I was first licesed as WB6RFI, on September 28th 1976, Mike Wheeler WA6NRH (now W1VI) gave me the Novice test.
  • My first QSO was on October 19th 1976 with WA6QEE Kevin in Rohnerville California. Report was 579 both ways. It took sometime to get a FCC license sent to you in those days.
  • I upgraded to Technician class on February 25th 1977 at the FCC office at 555 Battery Street in San Francisco.
  • I upgraded to General Class on October 26th 1977 and passed the 13 words per minute code test at the FCC office in San Francisco.
  • I upgraded to Advanced Class on January 23ed 1980 at the FCC office in San Francisco.
  • I upgraded to Extra Class on December 5th 2009 at a Granite Bay, California .VEC session.


In the late 1970's Ron Brown WA6WIY, Mike Wheeler WA6NRH, Lew Barnard WA6ESA and my self-WB6RFI installed the first 146.835 2 meter repeater on Mt. Zion. We started the first Amateur radio club in Amador County. The Amador County Amateur Radio Club. Ron was the President and I was the Vice President. The club supported the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CDF) (now CalFire) Volunteer In Prevention (VIP) program here in Amador County.



I am also licensed as FOØKW in French Polynesia (Tahiti) I have operated from the islands of Tahiti, Moorea, & Bora Bora. 1979, 1981, 1984, & 1990. using a Kenwood TS440SAT and a dipole Antenna. Renee and I met many of the local Amateurs in French Polynesia and of course our friends, FO8DF Jean Parker, and FO8GW Wilber Trafton, which are now both silent keys. French Polynesia and its people hold a special place in our hearts. It’s truly a paradise we will never forget.
