Biography

Mahalo for viewing my page.

First licensed as WH6CHJ in 1991 as a Novice with code. Within a year upgraded to Tech with code (changed call to WH6EY), then General with code, Advanced with code, then finally to Extra Class. Took a short break from the hobby (18 and half years), got back on the air on January 29, 2020.

Active with Digital modes, FT4 and FT8. (UPDATE May 16, 2022) Finally have FT8 WAS on 9 Bands, 80m, 60m, 40m, 30m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m and 10m. Rhode Island on 60m was the last and toughest one to work and get confirmed. Worked 169 countries so far. All this on an 80m horizontal delta loop at 35 feet. Now that the bands are opening up, getting more active on Phone.

Just getting started chasing POTA stations on both Phone and Digital modes. Primarily a hunter, but may start doing activations soon.

To everyone that has contacted me, I greatly appreciate every single contact I've made with you. I do enjoy repeat contacts, even if it's on the same band and mode. I never turn away a call. Never used "QSO B4" on the digital modes and never will. If you see me on the air, call, I will answer you if I hear you.

73 and warm Aloha from the island of Kauai, John, WH6EY
