Biography

I was first licensed in 1971 as WN8JSQ. One year later I passed my general test and became WB8JSQ which I held until 1981. In the summer of 1981 I passed the advanced and extra tests. I applied for a new callsign and received the call KQ8M on my birthday, Sept. 1, 1981. I was always very interested in DX but not so much as after 1980. I was very active in DXing and contesting, operating at the K8AZ superstation here in multi op and single op efforts. In 1994 I went off the air due to personal problems. At that time I had all active DXCC countries confirmed. I was off the air until March of 2007. In that time period a number of new countries were added to the DXCC list and I was dropped from the honor roll. Now I have to fight my way back again. If you hear me on the air, stop by and say hi.

I would like to also thank those stations and managers who have helped me get some old contacts QSL'd. Some are 25+ years old. Thanks guys and gals.

My log can be found on ClubLog.

Now running an AR-Cluster V6 node KQ8M. Address is kq8m.no-ip.org. User connection ports: 23, 7373 both with local skimmers KQ8M and W8WTS and port 7374 without skimmers. Port 3607 ARC 6 server port, 3605 Active ARC 4 port and 3606 Passive ARC 4 port.

Filters can be used to see only what you want to see from the cluster node. Please see my website for examples.
