Hi, my name is Don Jones. I became interested in radio at the age of 9 years old. The year was 1968. My grandfather gave me a short wave receiver. I enjoyed listening to Radio South Africa and Radio Netherlands. At the age of 14, I passed the novice amateur radio exam and was issued the call sign WN6CEI. I upgraded to Extra Class at the age of 18 years old and was issued the call sign N6ZV. At the age of 19, I traveled to Swaziland, Africa on my first Dxpedition. I spent my 21st birthday on a Dxpedition to Tromelin Island in the Indian Ocean. I was licensed as D68GA in the Comoro Islands from 1980 to 1993. I returned to the Comores in November 2020. I now hold the call sign K6ZO 7Q6M and D60AB enjoy traveling on Dxpeditions and meeting people around the globe. I held a world record for Africa in the CQ World Wide CW Contest. I have operated ham radio from 20+ DXCC countries around the world. I have served as president of HacDC Amateur Radio Club in Washington DC. I am also a member of CWOPs.org. I support the Northern California Dx Foundation.
