I was first licensed in 1967 as a novice. Later that year, I obtained my general and then my advanced license on the same day. I upgraded to extra class in December 2010.

I have a number of antenna. My primary antenna for 20M thru 6M is a K4KIO hex beam. I installed it in June 2013, father's day, with the help of my oldest daughter Amy. The hex beam replaced a Mosley CL33 tri-bander that was installed in 1974, when I put up the tower.

I am a fan of wire antenna, fed with homebrew open wire line through homebrew 4:1 baluns. I use about 20 feet of coax from the Palstar AT2KD tuner to feed each balun.

I use a 80M delta loop that is a triangle with the point down. The top wire is up about 50 feet. I feed it 1/3 up on the southern leg with open wire line.  I also have a 80M dipole fed the same way.  All wire antenna are homebrew. Here is a picture of the Hexbeam and tower.

I use a Icom IC-756PRO, a Yaesu FTdx-3000, Ten Tec Eagle, Kenwood TS-480HX, Yaesu FT-857D, Kenwood TS-530SP, TS-530S and a TS-520 my first new rig purchased in 1974. The tuner is a Palstar AT2KD and the amplifier is an Ameritron AL-80B.


I enjoy all the HF bands but you can usually find me on 17M, 20M and 40M.

I always QSL via LOTW and eQSL. I will send you a regular QSL card if you send me a stamped self-addressed envelope.

73s and good DX.......
