Originally licensed in 1956 as K9CUC. Surrendered that call when I passed my Amateur Extra license test (20WPM) at the FCC office in Honolulu in 1979, and issued my present call, KH6P.

Captain, United States Navy (Retired). Nuclear submariner. Marine Engineer. Following retirement from the Navy, served as a member of the Graduate Faculty at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering, and Chief Engineer, Hawaii Undersea Reseach Laboratory (HURL), for over 15 years. HURL operates two deep diving submersibles, Pisces 4 and 5.  Our support ship is the University of Hawaii research vessel R/V Ka'imikai-o-Kanaloa. Diving operations have been primarily near the Hawaiian Island chain, but we have also operated as far west as American Samoa and as far south as New Zealand.  Our crew has also made several documentaries for television.  I now work at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard as a Nuclear Engineer.

Life Member ARRL, Life Member AMSAT-NA, Charter Life Member Pacific DX'ers, Vice President Honolulu Amateur Radio Club, Member Battleship Missouri Amateur Radio Club, and Member Collins Collector Association. Own a pristine Collins 75A-4 and KWS-1 and accessories.

Achieved WAS via RS-6, RS-8, AO-7, and AO-8 from Hawaii in 1983. ME, VT and NH were the hardest to contact, with only about one minute mutual window per month. Worked about 40 countries on AO-10 and AO-13 while these satellites were active. With the exception of the venerable Oscar AO-7, none of the current low altitude satellites are usable from Hawaii for mainland USA or DX contacts. Have also made several EME contacts on 2 meters, but no longer have an antenna or amplifier capable of EME.

Currently active on HF using an Elecraft K-3, Icom IC-751A, Kenwood TS-130S, and ETO Alpha 374. Antennas include a Cushcraft R-5, R-7, inverted-V antenna for 80 meters, and Pixel RF Pro-1B receiving loop.

CW is my first love in amateur radio, and I generally operate CW with a J-38 straight key or bug. My favorite band/mode is 30m CW. I also enjoy SSB and can be found on the ANZA DX Net from time to time, work permitting. I do use the LOTW, but prefer paper QSL's. I QSL100% for all cards received.

If you are visiting Honolulu, please join us at the Monterey Bay Canners Restaurant, Pearl Ridge for breakfast on Tueday mornings at 0700. We have a great group of DX'ers, and you are always welcome. The Honolulu Amateur Radio Club also meets at the same location on the third Saturday of the month in January, March, May, July, September, and November at 0900. Join us for breakfast if you are in the area.

Here are two photos of my family taken on the North Shore of Oahu in March 2010. Amateur radio is a great hobby, but family always comes first!
