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 450 ohm ladder line through home made 4:1 baluns. I use about 20 feet of coax from the Palstar AT2KD tuner to the outside baluns.

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 2/3 up on the southern leg with 450 ohm ladder line.  I also have a 550' loop antenna for 160M and a 80M OCF dipole.  All wire antenna are homebrew. Here is a picture of the Hexbeam and tower.

I use a Icom IC-756PRO, a Yaesu FTdx-3000, and aTS-530S. 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 and 160M.

The TS-530S, above, was being junked because of distorted audio.  I rebuilt the internal power supply for $41.00 and now it works perfectly.  Below, is another Kenwood, a TS-530SP that also works perfectly.  I still have my first "new" transceiver purchased in 1974.  It is a TS-520 that still works as it did when new.

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.......
