I'm a native of Newton, Kansas and was first licensed as amateur radio operator KAØRCK in 1983. I began as a Novice and worked many stations, worldwide, on the 10 Meter Band when first active. I upgraded through the license classes to Technician, General, Advanced and finally Amateur Extra in the early 1990s. I received my vanity callsign, WØAQ, on the first day that vanity callsigns were issued in the 1990s. I was licensed in Canada as VE9CQ in 2018.  I'm presently active on the HF bands, analog VHF/UHF, and DMR via repeaters/hotspot from Downeast Maine and Southwest New Brunswick. Feel free to call on Brandmeister Talkgroups 3120900 and 3120897.

In Canada, amateurs may apply for a second callsign, and, as such, may hold one 2X2 callsign and one 2X3 callsign.

I hold the callsigns VE9CQ and VE9DIX. Listen for one of these calls during a contest operating from the Maritime Section.

QRZ?

Feel free to drop me a line. I'll respond.

My other passion is the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway.
