Good day my friend,
My name is Johnny, call sign - [KC6YZQ] - currently residing in San
Thank you for visiting and allowing me a little time to share you a little about
me, my life, my family and our beloved hobby - Amateur Radio - HAM.
I started exploring my fascination in amateur radio in 1991. I very much needed
a means of getting in touch anywhere I am. The cellular avenue was very
expensive at that time so I had to look harder. One day, I stumbled at a store
where they sell nothing but radios and there I was accidentally introduced to
this thing, I later found out to be called amateur radio (HAM). That store, I
also later learned, is called HRO. Since then, I stayed and learned as much
as I could about this wonderful hobby. I enjoyed much along the way and still doing it.
My wife and three of our four kids followed, making it even better. Because of
I met many wonderful friends, around town, the country and abroad.
I hail from the beautiful city of Baguio, Philippines. The strong desire and unquenchable
hunger to find what goes on beyond the shores of the Philippines, coupled with
the glaring invitation of the US Navy, I left a seemingly promising study of
accounting at the Saint Louis University, financed by the government and came
over to this land of unlimited possibilities.
I did all I can for the Navy and the Navy had been good to me. We had good times
together. As all good things has to eventually come to an end, I retired as a
Chief Electrician's Mate. A long, complicated road but it was life for me.
Education was a lot of effort for me. Persistence, patience, sacrifice and much
hard work did not fail me. To the end, I was awarded a Bachelor of Science in
Business Administration diploma from Hawaii Pacific University, Hawaii (1978),
Computer Programming and Systems from Grossmont College, San Diego, California
(1987) and I have to mention - a valued three-year background in accounting from
Saint Louis University, Baguio City, Philippines. Many packaged military schools were
also valuable for my growing up and shaping to what I am today.
MY LIFETIME PARTNER!
"Behind every happy man is a happier woman." I am not an exception
and here, she is. That strong, determined woman, who guided, straighten and
directed my moves when I get out of line. I owe her a lot of what I am today. I
make the decision, she approves it and I take the credit because I am the man of
the house. My life would not have been that sweet, has it not been for her and
the kind of woman she is. I admit, I am a big pain in the neck a lot of times
but none of those slowed her one bit. She has that special knack of somehow
coming up with something to take care of what is at hand, like every solution is
just right there. I could not be any luckier for having her as a team mate and
partner through all the mountains, hills and valleys of life.
We are both blessed with four kids. Three boys and a girl namely: John, Jim, Jay
and Joy. They make our lives fuller and happier. They allowed us the chance to
experience first hand what it is to be a father, mother or parent. With them, we
could also say, yes - we have been there - done that.
thank you and please come again,
