Born and raised in (KL7) Alaska. His grandfather (W7JXY) taught him the morse code at age 7 and Jon was licensed at 13. At 14, he walked into a Northwest DX Convention where as he puts it: "I met many of the major players in Zone 3, and was hooked, not to miss a major contest until my 30s!"

He and his wife are raising a family in the Pacific Northwest.
