My Contest history

Why contesting was a joy ,I must admit it is sport for the young but I am proud to have been there and done that. I started  DX contesting(CQWW)in 1959. I did a multi op with K5KOR Mike Cervin (ex KS4OR American Samoa) and K4HWK  , Scott Rutledge. All teenagers. In 1962 we did milti -single  with K5UKQ (using his Dad's call K5UKR) That was my start.
