Station- FT-857d, Yamaha CM500, Kent TP1-B, MFJ-969 tuner, WinKeyer

Antennas- elevated 4btv, 40/80 vert, 160 inv.L, 10m 3element beam @ 20ft.

Shack computer runs Windows 7, N1MM logger, WinTest, DX Lab, Audacity, DX Atlas & CW Get.

I operate out of an old school bus. It makes a nice shack with a nice view to the NW of Mt.Redoubt, room for work benches and 2 bunks. The bus doesn't run and not in it's final home. I plan to move it west 200ft to a nice pad with water/sewer and most importantly 220 electric service. There I can level it and maybe block it up 5ft or so off of the ground. But until then it's slightly unlevel and running on one 100ft extension cord.

Since 2008 I've had the privilage to be an op at KL7RA when I got an invite from Rich to operate IARU M/S. Luckily I earned my spot on the team and have enjoyed learning from and associating with the great group of ops at KL7RA. This lead to the opportunity to be W1AW/KL7 during IARU 2009 and KL5O during the 50th anniversary of Alaska's statehood. I will also be involved with W1AW/KL7 again for the ARRL Centennial. I got started in contesting with help from KL7FH(sk) and AL1G, Frank and Corliss in Anchorage when I was invited to CQWW SSB 2003 to op as part of a M/2, when my call was KL1MX. I was hooked right away and will always be greatful that Frank KL7FH took the time to elmer me in contesting and for them both being so willing to share their station. Before contesting I had been enjoying mostly listening to HF. I had strung up various wires as KB7PHT in Vancouver, WA then everywhere I could on the move up to AK in 2003. Tried the best I could to operate out of Whittier AK for the few years we lived there, but the town in not condusive to HF radio. Spent the winter of 05/06 in TN spending time with family and did a few contests as AL2F/W4. Once we moved to the Anchor Point area in 2006 I've increased my operating time by many fold. This is a great spot for radio and I've had lots of success with low power and simple antennas. Even though my main focus is Contesting, I enjoy most things radio and you will find me calling CQ and chasing DX when the bands are open, and even sometimes when they aren't. I also like checking into AK's HF nets and meeting other Hams that share a love and passion for the hobby.
