Though an SWL in my youth, I didn't set foot in an operating amateur radio station until the age of 40, when my older son's scout troop participate in JOTA. We both earned our novice tickets in 1990, and I was immediately infected by the DXing virus, for which I had no immunity. The Northern California DX Club provided excellent DXing Elmers, initially on the club's VHF repeater and later on its VHF packet cluster. A Cushcraft A3 tribander and an SB-220 amp acquired at the local flea market combined with software (DXLab) I developed to identify activity patterns and band openings from the DX spot data stream got me to little pistol status, but as the engineering leader of a struggling Silicon Valley startup, my "DXing time" was limited.
