Biography

FT8/FT4 Operating Tips (my preferences):
- Use "Hold Tx Freq" and DO NOT TX on my calling frequency
- Call me with TX2 to save a step, especially if conditions aren't great. Going to direct to TX2 puts you up on my calling list!!
- Sometimes if we are having issues completing a contact, sync your clock in the middle of your transmission to me. I do it when there are issues and for whatever reason, it works many times.
- Turn on your split (I personally only use "Fake It" with my 7610 and 7300).

QSL manager for KL7NO (SK).

I have lived in Alaska since 1982 except for a few years in New Mexico (2003-2006) but was not active.

Active years: 1983-2003 & 2019-present. If you have me in the log from 2004-Feb 2019...it was NOT me (see if it was AL7tc).

Licensed in 1983 as a novice (WL7BBB) and became an extra in about 1984. I actually held WL7BBB & KL7TC at the same time due to an FCC mistake, but picked KL7TC as my final call.

I have run contests (CQWW & CQWPX) with KL7IRT and KL7RA, but then went inactive from about 2003-2019....and am now back and building up a station at my new house (bp64du and bp64ev) (moved in Sep 2019, right before Alaska winter).

My dad is KL7XD and used his station in North Pole, Alaska (bp64jr) (he is active so you can contact either one of us if you need anything...no 160m at this time).
