... Ham Radio County Hunting History/Archive

I started in ham radio in 1979 at my Jr. High School radio club and quickly became interested in DX (hence the DX callsign). I have earned my WAS, WAZ, VUCC and DXCC and been active in contesting as part of multi-multi stations and single operator in the ARRL and CQ WW contests. I have also operated field day from N1FD in Nashua, NH.

County hunting started for a short time in the mid-90s but got hooked in 2005 when stumbled across the 20 meter net again. Since then, I have completed USA-CA and Bingo and working towards other awards. I enjoy helping out on the nets with spotting and running stations, even though I cannot pronounce some of those obscure counties. I enjoy running counties and am always working to improve my mobile station, now having the capability to run all bands. CW is still a work in progress but I am increasing my totals and running more counties on both modes now, digital is next.

On a personal side, I have a non-ham, yet very supportive wife Stephanie, a ten year old daughter Cassie and an eight year old son Chris, who may often be heard in the background while I run counties. I work in the computer industry doing database analysis consulting which gives me the opportunity to sometimes work from home and county hunt at the same time.
