Who Is N0UN?

I was looking at some Ham Radio Blogs today and even though I find other Ham’s Blogs “technically” interesting, it dawned on me that almost all of them (mine included) are not “personally” interesting.  They’re all about DXing, antennas, contests, radios, etc., but very few of them have anything to say about the person who’s writing the Blog post.  You may catch a picture (or two) of them at some radio convention or swapmeet, maybe even a snapshot of them in their Ham Shack, but that’s about it.

So I figure I’m gonna change that right here, right now.

I’m 56 – born in August, 1960.  I’ve been a Ham 43 years.  My first callsign at 12 in 1973 was WN8QFB.  I have two awesome kids and three grandchildren.  I’ve been married 25 years to my flight attendant wife.  I love my family, Harley-Davidson Road Glide, lifting weights and of course I love my Ham Radio.

Somebody once said, “a picture is worth a thousand words” – here’s a few that speak volumes (click to enlarge):

Now a days I run a little Ham Radio company called “Ham Supply” that used to be called, “Idiom Press”.

Rocky FlatsBack in the day I was a supervisor of “trucking” and a building specific nuclear material transport coordinator at a place near Denver called Rocky Flats.

After Rocky Flats I founded and ran a motorcycle rental company that I sold in 2004/5.

I live up here on the ridge southeast of Denver, a place we call “RF Alley”.  There’s quite a few Hams up here, including my buddy Keith, K0KE (he’s the famous “zero kilo echo”, lol).

And there it is – now you know a little about me and have a face to match up to my voice and Blog.

See you ’round the pileups!

    I will always remember you for hearing me that night of the Nepal earthquake and relaying my cousin’s name to Amir, who got it to the Consulate in Nepal… And we had a QSO on 40 SSB about it afterwards. I’m only 36 but thank you so much for all you do.
