Bruce Frahm, K0BJ
Bruce was licensed as WN0TAS in October 1967 as a high school sophomore. While many facets of amateur radio have intrigued him, DX ragchewing and awards are a pervasive interest. Among many memorable ham highlights was the 1979 m/v Yankee Trader circumnavigation signing 15 DX calls in ten months and staying in the homes of Fr. Dave CE0AE, Tom Christian VR6TC and Fr. Moran 9N1MM. A 1992 minimalist DXpedition with N1DX to Desecheo, before it became super-rare, was another fun excursion.
Bruce graduated from Kansas State University (W0QQQ) in 1975. He works in production agriculture (corn and wheat) with extended family. His family has hosted three exchange students and son Jon KB0MBS teaches in northern Thailand. Having lived within five miles of Colby, Kansas for all but four years, Bruce is nonetheless fascinated with intercultural exchange as well as travel, whether physically or through the magic of amateur radio.
