Thoughts on Working DX


Hi, my name is James Duffey, and I hold amateur radio license KK6MC. My alter ego is Dr. Megacycle. This picture was taken of me in October 2000, so it is a pretty accurate representation of what I look like now, except that I am not wearing a coat. Some people ask me how I got the moniker "Dr. Megacycle. Before 1967, frequency was measured in cycles per second, not Hertz, a million cycles per second was a Megacycle, abbreviated Mc. My call ends in MC or MegaCycle, and I have a PhD in Solid State Physics. Presto! Dr. Megacycle is born.

I was first licensed in 1965 at age 15 as WN0MWN and upgraded to General a year later as WA0MWN. I held the call N7ATB when I was at the University of Utah in 1979. I liked that call, but evidently I checked the wrong box when it came time to renew that call and the FCC gave me a new one. It doesn't fit in the 5 call area now that I live in New Mexico, so I have been thinking of getting a vanity call.
