Biography

Originally WN0IKT Mason City, IA 1964; then WA0OTE Mason City and Ames, IA 1966, WB9ADQ Villa Park, IL 1970, WA7TZO Phoenix, AZ 1972. N7US since February 1977. Extra Class since 1968.

The picture was taken in AZ before we moved to IL in 2006. The radio is now an Elecraft K3/100 with an Alpha 87A, and a US Tower HDX-589 supporting: SteppIR 4L (6L on 6M), M2 2L on 40, Force-12 Delta 130 rotary dipole on 30, and wires for 80 and 160. I use AA6YQ's DXLab Suite software because I think it's the most comprehensive, integrated software available and, most importantly, best supported. See http://www.dxlabsuite.com.

Mixed DXCC Honor Roll since 1984, Phone Honor Roll since 1986, and CW Honor Roll since 1992. Top of the DXCC Honor Roll on Mixed and Phone since 2002 and need P5 on CW. 5BWAS 1979, 5BDXCC 1980. ARRL Triple Play WAS #111.

5BWAZ #1696 - #880 to achieve all 200 confirmed.

I am a CPA and retired from Motorola in 2009. BS in Industrial Administration / Accounting from Iowa State University, MBA from Arizona State University.
