My name is Ron Forkner, K7EE, and I live in Gladstone, Oregon which is about 15 mile south east of Portland, Oregon. My grid is CN85qj Clackamas County Oregon. I was licensed in 1978, my original call was WB7WGC, I have held the previous calls, N7BCA, KB7WC, K7RRF, and N7HD. I obtained my Novice license through free courses provided by The Clark County Amateur Radio Club W7AIA. I'm an avid DXer and a member of the Willamette Valley DX Club. I also belong to the QCWA, Beaver State Chapter #108. I'm retired from Safeway Inc as a Transportation Executive and do some part time Logistic Analyses consulting when I find the project really interesting. My personal philosophy is "Make dust or eat dust". I am an alum of Oregon State University, Holy Cross (Military related), and UCLA (Military related).
