Now celebrating 40 years in Amateur Radio!

Licensed as WB7NXH on 9/29/1976.  Worked all states and over 200 counties on CW.  Redid all that on 6m SSB in the 80's. Almost all of those QSL cards disappeared in the 90's including my prize JY1 trifold card.  I should have applied for WAS, WAC and DXCC back then.  Other things got in the way of that.  See more bio down below.

Now after a eight year stint as a ARRL Section Manager, I am on the air again.  So since October 2013 I have worked 50 states, and over 190 countries.  I completed WAC on March 4, 2014, WPX400 April 11, 2014, WAS on April 14, 2014 and DXCC on August 1, 2014.  DXCC phone September 28, 2014, WAS 20m and WAS Digital September 29th, 2014. ARRL Centennial points challenge Award.

Really close to 5 band WAS and over 200 countries worked.
