About K9JY

Scot Herrick, K9JY, has been an Amateur Radio operator since 1984. First inspired by visiting the shack of WB9ZZV in high school and listening to Morse Code from Germany, K9JY has experienced the best from the hobby.

Scot’s ham radio activities have varied significantly since being licensed in 1984 — from DXing, PacketCluster (as NB9C) node owner, to SSB and CW contesting, to RTTY.

He has successfully contested as both a single operator, placing first in North America from K4JA in the CQ WW RTTY Contest, in the Top Ten for the RTTY Roundup, and as part of a multi-op contest group from KS9K, WB0AIH, K4JA, TI5N, and VP9/K9JY.

Recently, he has been more focused on DXpeditions and maintaining a site dedicated to WriteLog, a contesting program written by W5XD.

He is past President of the Four Lakes Amateur Radio Club and is currently a member of the Society of Midwest Contesters, a past member of both the Western Washington DX Club and the Cinco Nueve Contest Group.

Scot Herrick is the Publisher of K9JY.com and Cube Rules: Career Advice for Cubicle Warriors, a popular career management site.
