Operating from the spectacular Rocky Mountain Region of Colorado, K0IW is QRV from 160m to 23cm. I enjoy DX'ing, some contesting, VHF weak signal operations, some digital operations and designing and constructing equipment. I have been licensed since 1997, when I first got a technician's ticket. I qualified for advanced in early 1998 and extra about two weeks later, after 'accidentally' passing the 20wpm code test (I took it on a whim). My first love was 6m weak signal operations, but I have been active on HF since getting my advanced ticket. I primarily operate CW, but will operate any mode, any band I can when I have time.
