John Miller

John first became interested in Amateur Radio as a teenager living in Syracuse, NY where he obtained his Novice ticket (WV2BQJ) in 1958.

In 1976, John’s career took him to Silicon Valley, where he reconnected with amateur radio in the late 90s. To capture some of his best memories of ham radio, John designed his own website in 2006:

Since then he has created amateur radio websites for a number of organizations:

California QSO Party:
NS Sprint:

For the last decade, John has focused heavily on DXing, contesting, and recruiting new operators into the hobby.  His current DXCC total stands at 303 worked and 295 confirmed.  His article entitled "The No Excuses 160M Vertical" won the cover plaque award for the June 2009 issue of QST.  John is a member of ARRL, MLDXCC, NCDXC, PAARA, Past-President of the Northern California Contest Club, a founding member of the CW Operators’ Club, and currently serves on the board of the Northern California DX Foundation.  He is also co-chair for the 2011 International DX Convention in Visalia.

He is looking forward to a successful DXpedition to Sint Maarten, as they celebrate their special day on 10-10-10.
