Originally licensed as WN1HOL in 1967. Forty-eight years later I am active as AF3I. You may find me operating RTTY and CW contests, or the summertime VHF contests. New favorites include the CQ WPX contests, Washington State Salmon Run, ARRL International DX and CQ WW DX *** Go FRC !
Special thanks to YOU. If we had a QSO -- thank you for taking the time to work me and taking time to visit this QRZ.com website. If you heard me on the air, or if you are inquring about my ham radio interests, I hope we can someday meet on-the-air, or in person.
Recognition and reward for a few of my ham radio business favorites -- Joel Knoblock W3RFC and his entire Team at The RF Connection (http://therfc.com) supplier of coaxial cables, connectors, and antenna wire, John Bee N1GNV and his Team at Quick Silver Radio (www.qsradio.com) on whom I depend for PowerPoles and many other accessories, Cumberland Amateur Radio Club (www.radioclub-carc.com), Frankford Radio Club (www.gofrc.org), Randy Dorman at KB3IFH QSL Cards (www.kb3ifh.homestead.com), Patrick Tice WA0TDA, Nancy, and Jim Besst at the Courage Kenny HandiHam Program (www.handiham.org), Lauren Clarke KB1YDD and her Team (Maryann MacDonald KB1ZTH and Carol Krukiel) at the ARRL Development Office. My very good friends at AES Cleveland, Milwaukee, Las Vegas, and Orlando who keep me well supplied with all the essentials of amateur radio. My good friend Charles Penninger KC9DAO at Penninger Radio who furnishes my Tipper and Snap-Tube antenna masts. These are good people and good businesses -- I consider them trustworthy and deserving of your support.
In closing, I would like to thank the people who made it possible for me to enjoy the pleasure of ham radio so many years ago when I first became a ham.
