I've had my license since 1989 when I was issued KB5ILS. Also licensed the same day was my 12 old son Michael whose assigned call was KB5ILT. After we made Extra we upgraded our calls to AB5EA and AB5EB respectively. Obviously, when the vanity program came along I chose to get the 2X1 while Michael kept his callsign.

I have attained numerous milestones over the years, including #1 Honor role, 1,000 IOTA Islands, 9BDXCC and others. The bottom line is I enjoy DX and CW and am likely to chase anything related to those two things. I have recently started participating in the Summits on the Air (SOTA) program and enjoy both summit activations and chasing those who activate the summits. It is lots of fun.

My primary station is in Boerne, TX, where I have an Elecraft k3 driving a VL1000 amplifier into a 8 element Log Periodic up about 55 ft. I use wires off the tower for the low bands and I have a 4 element LFA antenna for 6 meters.

I have a secondary station at my small ranch in Edwards County. There I have a 107 ft. tower with a 2 Element 40m beam and a Log Periodic on top. I also have verticals and wires for the low bands. I have a 7 element LFA on 6m and a 7 element LFA on 2m.  The nearest town is Rocksprings, TX and the Grid out there is EM00. So if you work me on 6m, listen to the grid that I give you on the exchange.

One of my other passions is playing guitar. I have my own rock/blues band called No Refund. We released our first CD in September, 2012. The CD is getting international play. Check us out at www.norefundband.com . The CD is also available on iTunes

I also author a blog at www.ad5aradio.blogspot.com . Stop by if you can.
