 I'm the Vice President of the NAQCC Club and founder of the "West Virginia Chapter" of this club. I hold both the  DXCC and WAS awards as well as the 50 and 100 point 2 X QRP endorsements from the NAQCC club. I was the "Special Event Station' (N8A) operator for the "5th Anniversary Celebration" of the club. I hold the NAQCC "Friendship Award" of which I'm proud to be #13. I'm also the net control operator for the weekly WV QRS net held on Wednesday nights at 9:00 PM (0100z). 

My operating mode is very simple. I use Isotron antennas and a "random wire" at my home station. In the field, I prefer a simple dipole antenna. I'll chase DX but prefer a long CW QSO. You can "literally" work the world with five watts of power and a simple wire antenna. For this very reason, the NAQCC club focuses and promotes the use of low power "Morse Code" radio.   

I enjoy operating outdoors. 

I was a Signalman on the Destroyer USS Corry (DD-817). I'm an official member of the "Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club". After 21 years of service with a major paint company, I retired and began my real "radio" life.  I've held over 20 different jobs in this short life. The majority were as a "heavy equipment mechanic" in the coal mining and transportation industries.

 I'm a graduate of West Virginia State University. 

I've lived an interesting but unusual life. I have 2 children and 8 grandchildren. I spend my non radio life playing Bridge, playing the Guitar, Piano and Ukelele , or reading a good book. I love good classical music.

I owe my love of radio to two mentors. NK8Y developed my interest in QRP and WD8ODE (now a silent key) spent hours upon hours operating mobile from the many mountaintops in this state.

My club memberships are: NAQCC # 2279 FISTS # 13968 CC # 2066 SKCC # 4525 FP # 1896 ARCI # 14435 HH # 1238

I prefer to exchange all cards (domestic and DX) via E-QSL but if you "absolutly got'a have a paper card" send me yours with a SASE and I'll return it promptly.
