Bio: I was first licensed in year 1977, with novice callsign WD6EPV. (By the way, I completed most of my studying,

later on...thru the SCCARA club (license classes) in preparation for my General exam. Later, in the year

1981, or 1982...I achieved my Extra class ticket. And, a few years later I changed my callsign to a vanity callsign, which is today,

simply AA6W. I have earned both Satellite, and HF Mixed modes (both CW and SSB) DXCC awards, thru the ARRL.

I enjoy many facets of amateur radio. In recent years, I have enjoyed HF dx'ing...and HF contesting. I have participated in ARISS

(Amateur Radio on board The International Space Station) contacts as well, in the past.

And, I enjoy speaking with many amateur radio friends casually,on 2-meters or 440 mhz...occasionally when I am mobile.

The presentation on Nov. 13, 2017 will be fun! I had a chance to visit W1AW headquarters during their 100 year celebration,

and convention in Hartford, Conn... I have lots of pictures of the W1AW headquarters building, and

descriptions of the ARRL league headquarters, and surrounding areas.

Also, I will describe (with photos) the ARRL laboratory (for testing amateur radio equip). I will even provide some fun photos

of the modern aircraft which I flew in, to get across the country.

I think everybody will enjoy the presentation. I hope to see you there! Best wishes.

73 for now - Don, AA6W

 

Hope to see you at the meeting!

Gregg KF6FNA, President

From our February 14, 2011 Regular meeting The February SCCARA meeting featured Rich Harrington, (prior WA6GJF) Now KN6FW, speaking on T Hunting.

As his first call suggests Rich has been at this since 1962. Rich got part of his T-Hunting skills in the US Navy where it is a serious business.

Rich is now retired from Pacific Bell so he can devote his time to designing, building, and using DF equipment.
