SKCC# 10315S My favorite paddle. My Kent KT-1
My home HF radio is a recently acquired Flex 5000A. It is my first venture into SDR radio and, so far, I am delighted with how well it works. I have an Ameritron AL-811H amplifier. My tuner is a Vectronics HTF-1500. My antennas are a NA4RR Hex Beam mounted on my chimney, a ground-mounted Hustler 6-BTV and an inverted L that has 125 foot horizontal and 40 foot vertical components that I primarily use on 160m and 80m. For mobile operation, I use an ICOM ID-811H. Pictured above is my favorite paddle, a customized K8RA P-6 (has an extra heavy base). My straight key is a Kent KT-1.
DXCC - CW, DXCC - PHONE, 5B-WAC, WAS, 6-Mtr VUCC
I am an ARRL Official Observer (otherwise known as the Amateur Auxilliary)
I have been a ham for 43 years. I am 66 years old and am a retired teacher (math, science, and Spanish).
About half of my HF operations is on CW and the other half is devoted to digital -- JT9, JT65, and RTTY.
When its open, I find myself on 6-meters and have been having a blast on the magic band (usually on 50.095).
