Biography

For PSK31 LOTW WAS I lack only 4 states: Hawaii, Montana, Nebraska and Nevada. I have the Basic/ Mixed WAS for the 50 United States. "I Love Tough Things. I Love Doing Tough Things."

I QSL 100%....and....I use LoTW and eQSL(AG). Both are uploaded daily. Also Paper QSLs are mailed out once a month or more often for those who (like me) want paper (real) QSL cards. In the spirit of ham radio: No postage is needed and No Self Addressed Envelope required for any QSLs received. I now run mostly PSK31, some CW and some RTTY (low power) since we are in a Restrictive Owners Association and have a very small lot. This is an exercise in Stealth Antennas.
Now for the real stuff: ARRL Instructor PODXS070 #1899 DMC #07401 EPC #23551

I was First Licensed in Early 1967 at Texas A&M University as WN5SWI. That was back in the days of Crystal Control and CW. I had an Eico 720 and Hammarlund HQ-160 Receiver and a whole bunch of crystals (and I mean a BUNCH !).
Then Licensed as WB5OHH (Technician then General for a whole ten minutes and Advanced) after a short hietus working for a Government Contractor during the Vietnam Era. Had a Collins "S-Line" in the 70s and Early 80s. Moved to California in 1985 and took the call K6OHH. Wanted a 2X1 call and ended up with KF1P. This is an absolutely Terrible CW Call….Someone (KW3N) said it is a very good call on the voice modes.... I still work some CW though....along with PSK31....
