Arne Gjerning, N7KA

Arne earned his Novice class license in 1958 and quickly followed with an upgrade to General class later that year. He was soon hooked on the DX hunt, an interest that continues to the present. He upgraded his license to Extra class in 1978 and picked N7KA as his new call. He has held a number of other calls over time, including KN7CAD as a Novice and K7CAD when he upgraded to General. Other calls he has held include VP2A/N7KA, J6LKY, VP2MKV, and VP2KAV. He is affiliated with the Albuquerque DX Association and New Mexico Big River Contesters. He has been a DXCC Card Checker since the field checking program for DXCC was initiated and is authorized to conduct 160M QSL checking. He is active on 160-2m and 70cm, occasionally contesting but always looking for DX. Over the years he has earned many awards including #1 Honor Roll MIXED, 9-BDXCC (160-10M), DXCC MIX, PHONE, CW, and RTTY.
