.: Oliver Sweningsen, W6NV
Began hamming as WV6QGW/WA6QGW in about 1959 in Atherton,
California. Growing up on the San Francisco peninsula I was introduced real
radios and amplifiers that glow in the dark. Earned a degree in Electrical
Engineering, spend two years in the US Army Signal Corps, earned another degree
in Electrical Engineering, and began work for Bechtel Corporation. First
operated from Hawaii as a guest of KH6EWA in 1964, after taking the Matson Line
freighter, “Hawaiian Farmer” to the islands with W6SCI, the ships operator. My
donations to the KH6LC have included donations of time and used antennas. The
callsign of KH6DD, the “Paradise Contesters” also resides in Puna.
Over the years I have operated as: ZS6WW, D44BC, CT4A, JY4Z,
HC8DX, ZW5B, ZB2X, OH6NV, LU4FM, SU2MT, PT5A, 9Y4AA, HQ3R, and of course KH6LC.
