Larry has been licensed since 1968, and enjoys chasing DX, contesting, rag-chewing, working IOTA contacts, and logging TenTen numbers. He operates all bands from 2 meters to 160 meters, and his modes of operation include FT8 (his current favorite), RTTY, JT65a, CW, PSK31, and SSB.
Originally licensed as WB8BGO, Larry also held the call KE8BF briefly before getting his Extra Class license and the vanity call K8UT. Larry has 338 current DXCC countries worked and confirmed, plus an additional 9 “deleted” countries. He has 9 band WAS (160, 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10) and has turned his attention to US states needed for WAS on 6 meters. He has DXCC, WAZ, and WAS in three modes (CW, SSB, and RTTY). Larry has recently purchased a boat-load of LoTW credits, and forwarded forty 160 meter QSLs to the ARRL, which officially qualifies him for 9 Band DXCC (160, 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10).
