Ham Member Lookups: 61805


AB3CX was issued in April, 2005. My previous callsigns were WN2PTS and WB2PTS from 1963-1973. I was QRT all the years in between. I am basically a DX and contests op. Another interest is restoring, repairing and collecting classic radios of the 1930s. My home shack has about 90 vintage 1930-39 era radios displayed. Most if not all of my current operating is from a second, contest/DX QTH about 10 miles from my in town home. The station gear is a Yaesu FT-2000 with the NS roofing filter, an RF Space IF-2000 IF output and SDR-IQ  for panadaptor display, Alpha 99 Linear, and Ten Tec 238B tuner. Antennas at the station are described below. Software is N1MM for contesting, Spectraview for the SDRIQ and N3FJP for day to day logging. So far the DXCC totals are 326 worked, with  324 confirmed. 100% of QSO's since 5/10/2009 are being confirmed via LOTW. I still reply to all bureau QSLs received.

My ongoing project is a hilltop station QTH on 30 acres of abandoned pasture land near Cooperstown.  A tower went up in 2011, but the first antennas were erected in 2013. Tower #1 is 120 foot of Rohn 45G, with 3 element LL M2 40M yagi tuned for CW band, and a Tennadyne 12 element log periodic above that, turned by a prop pitch. At 22 feet on that tower is a 7 element 10M monobander fixed on EU. Added in August 2014 are three 5 element 10M Monobanders at 30-60-90 feet, aimed SE, SW, SE going up.   Tower #2 has a two stack of M2 5 element 20M yagis at 94 and 47 feet, a 7 element M2 6M yagi at 100 feet, an M2 15M4 fixed south at 70 feet, and an M2 15M 6 element monobander fixed on EU at 32 feet. Tower #3 has a rotating 7 element 10M monobander at 88 feet and a 40 LL 3 element at 82 feet tuned for phone band, and a 5 element 15M monobander fixed west at height of 36 feet. Below that is a 5 element short boom XM-510 pointed at JA.   80M transmitting is via a dipole, or a Hytower vertical, and on 160M  a 131 foot vertical wire sloping off the big tower. For receive, there are three 800 foot Beverages for NE, SW and NW. The station was on the air for the 2013 contest season with towers #1-2 only; tower #3 went up in August 2014.  From what I have learned, location, location, location.
