Biography

Thanks for stopping by!

Ham since 1965. Previous calls WN2AOR and WB2FWW. WAS, WAC and DXCC as WB2FWW in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In August 2021, received a CW WAS for operating here in SC as KB3FW for less than one year.

1974 graduate of University of Pennsylvania's Moore School of Electrical Engineering. Operated at Penn's ARC club station W3ABT between 1970 & 1974, mostly doing National Traffic System (NTS) assignments in local and regional nets.

After graduation, continued doing public service work within the NTS and was the Daytime 3RN Manager for a while as well as doing regional net work and occasionally a TCC assignment. Lots of fun.

Now in SC near HHI. Loving it here in the Low Country and enjoying being back on the air after being inactive between 2005 and 2019.

Mostly retired Registered Professional Electrical Engineer in 13 states. Did a few major projects at the Gateway Arch, which remains one of my favorite all-time places, in St. Louis. Projects were related to the tram systems in each leg of the Arch.

Other interests include golf, tennis, thoroughbred horse racing (partnerships, etc.), and volunteerism. Sports too...huge Phillies fan (MLB) and Giants fan (NFL).

Member of IEEE, NSPE, PSPE, SCSPE, ARRL, TOBA, Sun City Hilton Head ARC, South East Contest Club, SKCC (#29605C) and CW Ops Club (#2982).

Past president (2014-15) of NSPE, its Education Foundation (2019-22), and PSPE (2005-06).

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

Running an Icom IC-7610 for CW, 100W to a backyard SuperAntenna Vertical. I call it my "Pip Squeak Station". Reached my goal of getting Worked All States award for the new location and rig within one year of getting back on the air. Now have WAS on 12m, 15m, 17m, 20m, 30m, and 40m as well as DXCC from new location on 20m. Have WAS CW and FT8/Digital and WAS CW on 20m.

Love the 7610 and the IC-7300 is a fine rig as well that I will be using mostly for portable operation. I highly recommend both transceivers.

Using a Yaesu FT991A for digital operations. I'll be on 10m a lot in the coming months.

Very modest station for sure! In my dreams, I have a huge multi-band beam antenna up about 75 feet on a tower and I am running a full KW. Maybe next lifetime.

It is a LOT of fun though to use a smaller-scale set-up and see what can be done!

I REALLY like getting QSL cards in the mail. If you send me a QSL card in the mail, I will send one of mine back to you promptly...no SASE required.

73 to you and yours,
Harve
