Ham Member Lookups: 24846


Putting Rhode Island on the air for over 20 years!


First licensed in 1992 as N1NVM General Class. Two months later, KD1NG Advanced Class; two months later KD1NG Extra Class. In 1996 I received K1SD.  Turned to the dark side of Amateur Radio early...I mostly contest.

Member of ARRL, CTRI Contest Group, Yankee Clipper Contest Club and the Newport (RI) County Radio Club.

In February 2013 members of the CTRI Contest Group visited Carlos WP4U's "Mi Casita" Contest Station for CQ WW RTTY Contest.



Operating CQWW WPX RTTY at "Mi Casita" was a blast. The pileups in the Caribbean were just unbelievable. While there we missed the big blizzard that hit New England that weekend. Power was out for most of a week, feet of snow, sub-freezing temps; great to be away!

But awaiting me on return, my venerable Cushcraft A4S that's been in the air for the better part of 25 years:



I replaced the A4S at 38 feet with a Bencher SkyHawk 3X10 tri-bander on a guyed Rohn 25G tower at 70 feet. This Yagi is a 10 element no-trap design with 3 full size elements on 20 meters, 3 on 15 and 4 on 10 meters.


The "Beam Team" John W1AN, Bob KB1LN, James K1SD, Tony, and Ken K3IU





The A4S was repaired and raised to 42' and phased with the Skyhawk via a (circa 1994) kit-built WX0B StackMatch.  The A4S is bolted to one leg of the tower and can be manually rotated between headings of 30 degrees (towards Europe) and 270 degrees (towards West Coast USA).


Other antennas currently used are Inverted V dipoles on 40 and 80 meters. 

The current station consists of

    Elecraft K3 (kit built), Ten Tec Titan Model 425, Ameritron remote antenna switch, WX0B Stack Match, DuneStar switch, Yaesu G-800DXA rotator, N1MM, MMTTY, MMVARI, 2Tone, etc....

The Olympics of Amateur Radio Contesting the World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) 2014 will be held in New England in July 2014 in conjunction with the IARU HF World Championship Contest. Station tests were conducted during July 2013 to prepare for the big event.
