First ham license 1955 (K5GFN). AA4NN in 1977. Rag chewing on CW was my thing until I discovered contesting, particularly on the low bands. Then, DXpeditions became a reality. I enjoy visiting remote areas of this planet and working CW pileups. I am manager of an ARRL Incoming QSL Bureau for the 4th call area. I am Trustee of amateur radio clubs K5GFN, a Field Day Bunch and K5ESE, Lake Wylie Mariners. I also hold call signs XY4NN, A25NN and 7P8NN. I am a member of INDEXA and the Carolina DX Association.
