First and foremost I’d like to thank Jack WA7HJV for the nomination and more importantly, his help and support for me getting back my CW chops. I also want to thank Steve N6TT, Bob K8JPM, Puck W4PM and Bruce K1BG for putting up with my “less than perfect” QRQ fist!
I was first licensed in 1992, extra a year later (AA0LN) running a Swan 700cx I bought at a ham-fest in Minneapolis MN. I was very active running CW traffic nets and DXing until work, family and the emergence of the internet took over – sadly I let my ticket expire.
In the fall of 2020 I heard CW in a movie and realized I could still copy it, in January of 2021 I got my ticket back and I’ve been non-stop CW ever since.
I’m on the air early mornings before going to work, mostly 40 meters some 80 meters – if you hear me on please don’t hesitate to give me a call.This biography is what appeared in Solid Copy when the member joined CWops.
