Biography

I am a General Class Amateur Operator living at the north end of the beautiful Napa Valley. My Dad was a CW ham and I caught the bug from him. I originally got my Tech License in 2003 at the urging of my dear friend and first Elmer, Donald Livingston. (K7DRL SK) I let my license lapse in 2013 but became interested again after sitting through the 2017 Tubbs Fire which knocked out most forms of communication here in the Napa Valley. I am fascinated to see what I can accomplish with "100 watts and a wire".

My rig is a Kenwood TS-850SAT that was a legacy machine, belonging to my friend Steve K6ETA. This machine belonged to his father, then to himself. Steve gave the radio back when he became more involved in radio and it sat collecting dust until he made me an incredible deal on it. I transmit on a 20/40/80 dipole and a big loop I made with wire from my Elmer John Wehren N6XN. I am working on a QSO card design and would truly cherish one of yours!



73! Dennis
