The picture is of Nancy (XYL) and me in Chicago in 2010.
I am a RF/hardware/systems engineer. I design ablation generators at Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Solutions, Medtronic Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure, Mounds View, MN.
I was originally licensed as a novice (WN0DSJ) in Feb 1971, and have been K0SF since 1977. I enjoy home-brewing, DXing, and some contesting. I paper QSLL 100%. I am also on EQSL.
If you want a QSL card, just send me an email asking for one. As long as you're in the log, I will mail it out (US direct, DX via the bureau). No need to send me a card, $, stamps or IRCs.
I sent cards via the ARRL bureau in early August. The "In Box" is empty.
73, Steve, K0SF
