I WAS ORIGINALLY LICENSED IN 1960 AS WV2LBP. AFTER A LONG SABBATICAL FOR MARRIAGE, WORK AND THE NAVY, OUR FAMILY ENDED UP IN MOBILE, ALABAMA.  N4IRO WAS MY NEXT CALL IN 1983, AND I GOT ON THE AIR WITH A USED TS-520S.  IN 2011, I UPGRADED TO EXTRA AND RECEIVED THE PRESENT CALL.

RETIREMENT FROM THE BEVERAGE INDUSTRY IS GOOD!  BESIDES GETTING ON THE AIR AND ALL THE TASKS OF HOME OWNERSHIP, TRAVEL, ETC., THAT 1977 EL CAMINO RESTORATION OCCUPIED LOTS OF TIME, AND IT'S NOT QUITE FINISHED.  I AM ALSO A RETIRED SG1 FROM THE ARMY WITH FOUR YEARS ACTIVE NAVY SERVING IN THE PHILIPPINES AND HAWAII, AND THEN 22 YEARS IN THE ARMY NATIONAL GUARD WITH ACTIVATIONS TO KOREA AND IRAQ.

                                       

ANTENNAS ARE A TA-33JR TRIBANDER, HOMEBREW 6M LONGBOOM AND 13EL. 2M BOOMER.

BESIDES SSB AND A BIT OF CW, I AM ACTIVE ON RTTY, JT65 AND JT9.  I AM ALSO NOW OPERATING METEOR SCATTER AND EME.  I PREFER TO CHASE DX, DO A BIT OF NON-SERIOUS CONTESTING AND LOOK FOR GRIDS WHEN THE "MAGIC" HAPPENS.  HAVE 300+ GRIDS CONFIRMED AND MISSING HI AND UT FOR 6M WAS.

EQUIPMENT FOR GENERAL USE IS AN FT-950 AND KPA500.  FOR 6M AND 2M QRO, TWO CONVERTED LARCAN AMPLIFIERS ARE IN USE.  RECEIVE ON 2M IS A FUNCUBE AND SDR CONSOLE.

RECENTLY, I MADE MY FIRST EME QSO WITH ON4AOI, USING 700W AND 13EL BEAM WITH NO ELEVATION.  AN ABSOLUTLY GREAT DAY!  THIS HAS GOTTEN ME MOTIVATED TO START BUILDING A 4X7 SYSTEM WITH ELEVATION TO PUT OUT A NICE SIGNAL FROM EM50, ALABAMA.

73'S  DOUG
