LaParta started his Ham Radio history in 1956, when first licenced as KN6SXX . 

LaPorta’s first love was DX contesting, and during his active contest years as K6SXX, WA0ISO, DL4LA, W5QGZ, and W5LA his stations often performed admirably, even at the QRP level.

ICQ Amateur/Ham Radio Podcast Team send their thoughts to his surviving Linda, NE5LL.
