About Cliff Hauser – KD6XH
Cliff was first licensed in 1971 as WA6KTN while on his first active duty tour in Fort Jackson, South Carolina. He used his mother’s home address in California as his residence on record. In 1975 Cliff upgraded to advanced class at the FCC office in Long Beach, California and requested a new call sign. He upgraded once again to Extra Class while attending the Visalia DX Conference about 20 years ago. He managed to pass the written and the 20 w.p.m. Morse code test at the same time.
In 1988 Cliff became the ARCA treasurer followed by Vice Chair in 1989. From then, he has held various positions until 2011.
From 1993 to 2004 he was The Arizona Section Manager succeeded by Tom Fagan.
Cliff has been on four (4) DX-Expeditions: XZ0A in 2000, T33A in 2013, 5W0XH in 2014, and W1AW/KH8 in 2014.
His future plans are up-in-the-air due to limited funds now that he is retired.
Cliff is active in the Southern Arizona DX Association, the Central Arizona DX Association, Catalina Radio Club and The Old Pueblo Radio Club.
