K.D. Borcoman, K6KDB, is a philosophy instructor and Ham Radio enthusiast. He has participated in numerous Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiments (SAREX) including the very first one with Owen Garriott, W5LFL, onboard the Columbia. In 1999, he was fortunate to have been a control operator (as WB6NUD) for the final SAREX mission--also aboard the Columbia with Commander Eileen Collins in conjunction with Harbor View Elementary School in Southern California.
