APRS Realtime Map Tracking K0RU/M CW On-The Air: K0RU-9 Mobile

I love CW. I operate alot of CW mobile, and would love having you aboard some day.

I've been licensed since 1970, at the age of 10, and been going ever since. I have a couple people I would like to thank for my amateur radio pleasures, W8MYZ - Mike, no longer with us, but most definetly in my heart. WB8TTH - Wally (my father) whom I admired the most, little education, hard worker, and always on my tail to do my best.

The one thing I love most, is giving back to Amateur Radio what I have learned from my Elmers, Mike and my Father were the BEST, no I don't mean the best at CW, the best at Phone, RTTY, nothing like that, I mean simply put they were the best TEACHERS one could ask for, they had confidence in me when I needed it, and they always encoraged me to do the BEST I could, they both are truely missed, and in my heart each time I key my rig.

I enjoy Elmering others into Amateur Radio, and enjoy teaching. If you've worked me, thank you, if not, please look for me on the bottom end of any band, I don't run Phone much at all, but find your key, and jump in my qso, I will run ANY SPEED, and I love to Ragchew.

40Meter 4-Square Verticals

4 each 33 ft 6 inch approximately verticals, DX Engineering 4-square controller, each element has 1/2 inch 75 ohm hardline running to them and then from the dx engineering center controller to the shack is approx. 150 foot of 3/4 inch 75 ohm hardline with 1/12 wavelength terminators on each end for 50 ohm matching

 

 

 

 

 

Here you can see the termination method I used for each vertical element. Using 3/4" plumbling compression fitting and cutting them I was able to develope a very nice compression fitting for the PL259 connection to the elements. You can see the alluminum homebrew plates for the connection of the ground radials with sheet metal screws.
