Biography

First started as an SWL "KDX6T" in 1974 at age of 4, then became a ham in 1986. Inspired by my grandfather W6RII (SK), and my father N6EGC. Jim Rafferty N6RJ (SK) was my DXing and contesting elmer. I am forever grateful to these three individuals for teaching me the best of ham radio. Enjoy DXing and contesting from 1.8 MHz thru 50 MHz.
