Welcome to the K2AK Amateur Radio website

Thank you for visiting the K2AK (KILO-TWO-ALPHA-KILO) Amateur Radio Website. My name is Jeffrey Thomas (Jeff) and I have been an Amateur Radio Operator since June 1976. I was first licensed as a Novice class operator in the state of New Jersey with call sign WA2QZA. CW (morse code) was required to get a ham license back then. I wanted more than the priveledge of conversing in morse code, so I studied and got more proficient in CW for the 13 and 20 WPM tests. We had to go to an FCC office to get tested, so I went out to Philly in August 76 and took the General and Advanced tests and passed them both and was issued N2AEW.

I held the callsign N2AEW until February 1999 when I requested and was issued the vanity call of W2JRT. In March of 2007, I changed vanity call signs to K7WIN. After upgrading to Amateur Extra Class and searching I upgraded to the 1X2 call sign of K2AK which is in 2-Land where I was first licensed.

From November 1983 to January 1985, I operated HL9JT from a mountaintop in Suwon, South Korea and completed over 15000 contacts with stations from around the world. It can get crazy on the DX end of a pile-up. It was a fun and busy time on the mountain with 100watts and a long wire.

I am active on the HF bands. I mostly enjoy working digital modes FT8, FT4, and CW. I enjoy SIX Meter openings whenever we get them.

I have accumulated many awards over the years and am creating a page to list them.

If you need my QSL, I QSL 100% via ARRL's Lotw, Club Log, and hard copy if you request to my address with an SASE.

Check out my media page for some photos from around Arizona.

73 es gud DX,
