Biography

I first received my Novice license in 1975 as WB1AGB and proceeded up the levels until my Extra class in 1978. When I reached that level I applied for a vanity 1x2 callsign but missed the window by 3 days and received a new 2x1 callsign which was AA1D. Since those were new I actually had pileups on me from hams not knowing that the "AA1" prefix was the US. In the '90s I tried again for a 1x2 call. I was often in the UK for work so I chose K1UK (it's good in CW too).

Lately I've been enjoying JT65 and JT9 and loving it. It's perfect for when bands aren't cooperating (which is always)!

Good DX, God bless, Happy Trails, and I hope we cross paths someday (if we haven't already)!

73,

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

My first rig was a complete station from the widow of a silent key. It was a Drake TR4 with an RV4 VFO into a 4 element 15m yagi with dipoles for 80m-20m and an old brass straight key from God knows when. I still have that gear. I guess I'm saving it for the K1UK museum (or too fond of it to part with it more likely). I've upgraded to a Icom IC7300 with a Yaesu FT-450D backup rig. In the VHF/UHF bands I use a Kenwood TM-V71A with two Yaesu FT-60Rs, and an Icom IC-2730A for portable and mobile use. For HF I use an NI4L dipole with a straight brass key from my original station kit.

DX Code Of Conduct
