Biography

K1HTV has been continuously active in Ham Radio since 1958. Retired after 48 years in broadcasting, the last 28 at the Voice of America in Washington, DC. My wife Phyllis, K1WSN, and I moved from our Glenn Dale, MD QTH in 2008 to our new QTH in Amissville, VA.

I love chasing DX with my Elecraft K3 and have worked all DXCC entities except No. Korea (362/339) with 100 Watts. Have 10 band DXCC with low power including over 300 confirmed on 10,15,17 & 20 Meters and over 295 countries worked on 40, 30 & 12 Meters. The 6 Meter DXCC total stands at 154 countries confirmed.

I enjoy contesting at the home QTH and in the big CQ & ARRL DX contests at the 160 Meter position at W3LPL. The summer VHF contests are spent on 6 Meters with the K8GP Grid Pirates.
