K1ARG - John M. 'Johan' Sorvari

Though I'm licensed as John, nowadays I'm usually called johan.

First licensed as WA2AJO in 1958 while in high school, I never renewed when I went off to college. Then came a tour with Uncle Sam in Germany, back home for more college, on to family and career, and at last retirement. A lot of that college time went into getting a degree in astronomy (U of R, '73), which led into my career and remains an interest, along with hill walking, music, photography, and the great debate. Most importantly, I enjoy the support of my Wife Ann, KB1SRW.

In 2008 I decided to return to The Hobby and became KB1RNK in December, followed by an upgrade to AB1KF in April '09. But I liked the rhythm of the 1X3 calls better than 2x2 (I don't eat chocolate either) and chose K1ARG. My radio interest focuses on building things, listening, a growing interest in DX, public service, digital modes, antenna theory, and portable ops.
