I have been licensed since December, 1974. In September, 1978 I received my Extra Class
license from the FCC and my new
Almost all of my operating has been from New England (MA/NH). I moved to
Colorado in late May 2007, and finally got back on the air in August,
2008 with a half-size G5RV strung up in the attic.
I operated from the Galápagos in September, 2002.

Does anyone know of an amateur radio club in Brighton, U.K.?
I have been using the DX4WIN
logging software since late 1997. Since early 2003, I have maintained the
DX4WIN country database.
This is similar to the work I have been doing for contest software (see below). I hope
to merge these two efforts in the not-too-distant future. You can see the
results of my work here.
Contest Country files
Since late 1993, I have maintained a country database
used by most contest logging programs. This data format has also been adopted by several DX Cluster packages.
DX Cluster Info
In early 2007, I took over maintenance of the
DX Cluster Info web site after the current owner decided to let it go.
The data from this site is used by many programs.
Amateur Radio WWW sites and mailing lists
I also keep a list of some Amateur Radio WWW sites and mailing
lists. It's not intended to be a complete list, but is unique in that it includes the
mail addresses for many E-mail reflectors.
Zones and Oblasts for Russian States
After being unable to find a good cross-reference of Russian prefixes to
ITU zones, I created
my own - one for Europe and another for Asia.
This list also includes the CQ
zone, as well as the "old" and "new" Oblast designators.
Internet DXCC List
At the New England DXCC Convention in October, 1995, I spoke about the Internet as it
applies to DXing. While working on the presentation, I wondered how many DXCC countries
have amateur radio operators who are also on the Internet. At that time, I had collected
Internet E-mail addresses from about 80 DXCC countries. As of July 13, 1997, the
Internet DXCC List total is up to 194 countries!
NOTE: This list has not been updated in over 10 years!
