Formerly I was into DXing, but my quad antenna was destroyed in a hurricane. Have not had the finances to replace it, so I am using a couple of homebrew wire antennas and find they do not work well for DX. For example, I cannot hear the E41 or XX9 or 9N or VU4 or VU7 stations from my location. If anyone has any suggestions, especially something I can build on a limited budget, please email me. Thanks.
Although my given name is Martin, I have gone by Marty most of my life. I am a native Houstonian, born 1959, member of Beautiful Savior Lutheran church in Houston, married and have two children. My other hobbies include photographing abandoned highways and bridges, true stereo recordings, playing guitar and watching tv shows about UFOs and the paranormal. Some favorite TV shows are Resturant Impossible and Hotel Impossible, also How the States Got Their Shapes.
I got my start in radio when my parents bought me a shortwave radio in around 1972. I then had police scanner radios and CBs.
I was first licensed in 1989. Previous calls KB5IQO, N5OHN and AB5NN. I changed to AG5T in the vanity program. Some of my other ham radio activities are:
