Received this call sign in 1993. It was published in the November Issue of QST as the last one issued for the month, at the time of the publication.

Still being in pretty good shape, for Field Day 2009, a 175 foot tower was climbed and a loop antenna was hung and tuned with the SGC 230 Smartuner as a Vertical array. The Low Power Club Station for the Callaway Amateur Radio League placed 1st in the North American "contest-fun-event" as 1A - MO. The group had control of the frequency of operation, and considering 100 Watts, and being struck by Lightning before 10PM local time on Saturday. This was quite an accomplishment for the Loop and the Club.   Our club call is KSØB.

WIN-EQF is employed as the main logging program.

Rigs are a Kenwood TS-990S, Kenwood TS-950 SDX, Kenwood TS-2000 SAT.  [First rig on the air was a self constructed Heathkit SB104-A which is still used occasionlly.  I am truly spoiled by the TS-990s, and seldom use the Heathkit at all.]

Aerial is 1420 +/- feet of #12 AWG Solid THHN wire strung between 4 Utility Poles on the property and to and from a 40 foot Rohn 25 tower. The closed loop is tuned on all bands with a MFJ-998-RT remote antenna coupler through a 4:1 Balun.

Amplifier is Ameritron ALS-1300-X Solid State 1200 watt "near limit" amplifier, and is employed when necessary on all bands as needed to establish consistent and reliable contact.

Ham Radio is a great resource and great means of keeping the mind occupied. With the amplifier in line on 160, it is possible to work the band even on noisy summer nights.

I enjoy good DX Rag Chew or DX in general. Also rag chew regularly on 160 meters after 03:30 Zulu.

Working on electronic equipment is enjoyable as was previously gainfully employed doing so after earning an Engineering Degree in later life.

"see you on the radio"
