Ham Member Lookups: 40148


I have been involved with ham radio since 1973. Previous calls were KD5VU, KD4YC, N7AET, WB7SHW and WT7AAN.

My current radio interests are RTTY DXing, limited contesting and was an active in the ARRL’s 2014 Centennial QSO Party http://www.qsl.net/aa5vu/dxcc-table.htm. Been there done that with the DXCC for RTTY, CW, Phone and Mixed with over 321 confirmed; the ARRL Triple play #122, 5BWAS #544; RTTY WAS #54, CW and Phone WAS,  HF Packet WAS #5, 12 Meter WAS #6, 17 Meter WAS and 160 Meter WAS #295.  

The setup at AA5VU is a Kenwood TS-590S to a Wilson System 33 Beam at 55 feet, a modified W9INN muli-band fan dipole or an Inverted-L for 160. I use a 27-inch Apple iMac running OS X 10.10.3 (Yosemite). For RTTY and other digital modes I use fldigi by W1HKJ with Aether for logging and uploads to LoTW.

I am a native Texan from Dallas, a graduate of North Texas State University, ex 1st LT, USAF and retired from Lockheed Martin. I am member of the ARRL and the CTDXCC (Central Texas DX & Contest Club). My PSK31 070 Club number is #612 and the 30 Meter Digital Group #394. I even have an old 10-10 #27820.

In 2006 I completed training with the American Red Cross and became a volunteer Operator/Driver of an Emergency Communications Response Vehicle (ECRV). The awsome ECRV was ham magnet; however, the Red Cross retired the ECRV's in 2013 to keep up with technoogy.

I 100% QSL all direct cards and upload all QSO's to the ARRL's LoTW. Sorry, no eQSL or Bureau cards. My other time/money waster is a Black C6 (6th generation) Corvette equipped with a Yaesu FT-8800 Dual-Bander with a stealth antenna. I have been driving Corvettes since 1981 (C3, C4, C5 and currently a C6).
