First licensed in Aug. 1974 as WN3WZR. Upgraded to General in Aug. 1975 and then to Advanced mid 1976.  varying levels of activity until Dec. 1985, then basically QRT until Sept. 2008 when I got my old station out of storage, put up my favorite antenna from the old days and been having fun ever since.

In February 2009 I brought my old Drake into the digital age on PSK.  That's where you will find me most of the time now.

Now on WARC bands with my newly acquired TS-430S.  (May 2010).

All of my old paper logs have been converted to electronic logs and uploaded to LOTW and eQSL and HRDlog


Station: Drake TR-4C with RV-4C,Drake MN-2000 Antenna Tuner  (80, 40, 20 15 and 10 only) (NOTE: Drake temporarily out of service - using Kenwood on all bands for now Cry)

Kenwood TS-430S and MFJ-948 tuner for the WARC bands.

Now using (as of July 2011) an ICOM IC-718. All bands/modes, at least until the Drake is back in service.  As of Jan. 2015, the IC-718 is also down for maint and I am now using my Yaesu FT-857D.


Nov. 1, 2015 update:  Passed the Extra class test.

Nov. 23, 2015:  I have retired the IC-718.  good rig, but I decided I needed something different.  the FT-857D is my backup (and base 2m/440) rig again and using a new Yaesu FT-450D on all HF/6m bands.

Antenna: 1 - "Joystick" a.k.a. "Little Wonder" at about 10 feet.
