AA6KJ (Simi Valley, California)
I was first licensed in Finland as OH6KJ. After being nearly 30 years QRT, I got back into this great hobby in the summer 2012 as AA6KJ. Currently enjoying chasing DX and contesting (mostly CW).
Rig: Elecraft K3 (100 W)
Amp: Acom 2000A (1.5 kW) -- However, very often I use just 100 W.
Ants: 5 band spiderbeam (3 el for 20 m, 2 el for 17 m, 3 el for 15 m, 2 el for 12 m, 4 el for 10 m) at 15 m height and vertically polarized 30/40m full wave delta loop.
Logging and contesting on Linux: CQRLOG and Win-Test (under wine).
Other: My QTH is plagued by strong power line -like noise, which is S9 on most bands. While the noise blanker takes it down to about S1, the settings must be cranked up causing distortion and interference from the nearby strong signals. So, if I can't hear you well, be patient and, if on CW, drop the WPM rate. Also, it does not help that I am located in a valley with mountains very close to SW-S-E-N directions.
