Retired: Packing up and moving permanently to Arizona. Working on getting rid of the California QTH. (Back and forth for the time being). All antennas are now down at the California QTH (6/9/2020).

Started out in the hobby when I lived in Tachikawa, Japan in 1969. Several of us took classes at the Tachikawa AFB MARS station, then known as AI1AD, and received our ham licenses (as "Conditional Generals." A term used back in those days). (I've had several call signs over the years, this one since 2006.)

Also, operated in Costa Rica, Germany and Panama. Lived in Gießen, Germany 8 1/2 years and in Tachikawa, Japan 5 1/2 years. (Bribri, Costa Rica and Balboa, Panama were short two-week adventures).

Spent many years playing the EmComm gig with RACES, ARES and the Red Cross going to wildfires, floods and earthquake disaster areas. Now, it's strictly a hobby again.

Operate "100-watts max" on HF ... no amps. (Nothing fancy or exotic). CW & RTTY are my preferred modes. Operate 40-meters thru 432. (Also work QRP on the bands).

SWL cards are welcome here, also. (WA6054SWL)

I dabble with the satellites (birds) from time to time. (Usually when we're out mountain-top camping). Also, dabble with SOTA (since 1-3-2019) and POTA (since 1-20-2019).

Secondary QTH (soon to be the Primary): Sierra Vista, Arizona (Cochise County) ... near Fort Huachuca. QSL cards made up for both locations, depending on which QTH you worked. (DM13vr or DM41um). (Permanently moving to Sierra Vista in early 2020). Shortly, Arizona will be the only QTH.

Operated the AN/GRC-122, AN/GRC-142, AN/GRC-46 and AN/GRC-26D series Radio Teletype sets while in the US Army. (MOS:Ø5C-Radio Teletype Operator w/Morse and SMOS:31V-Tactical Communication Systems Operator/Mechanic). (Ron Boltz, K3TZJ's site).
