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

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 (or a 13-inch MacBook Pro) running OS X 10.9.3 (Mavericks). For RTTY and other digital modes I use fldig by W1HKJ with Aether for archived logging.

II like RTTY DXing and I now have 296 counties (enities) worked on RTTY. Been there, done that for the ARRL DXCC with 320 countries (or entities) worked (Mixed, RTTY #1397, CW and Phone), ARRL Triple Play Award #122, 5BWAS #544, CW-WAS, RTTY-WAS #54, 160 Meter-WAS #295, 17 Meter- WAS, 12 Meter-WAS #06 and HF Packet-WAS #05.

I am currently active in the ARRL's 2014 Centennial QSO Party with a personal objective to work all W1AW/Portable stations in CW, Phone and RTTY. My current standings are summarized on my web page listed below.

I am retired from Lockheed Martin, a 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.
