Ham Member Lookups: 37245


In 2007, I moved from the NYC area and retired to SC to a gated developmen, Willbrook Plantation, that used to be a major supplier of rice in the mid-1800s. I operate on 160 meters through 6 meters, mainly cw, usually using a K3 into a THP HL-1.5KFX.  I am currently using an open wire doublet for 80, 40, 10 and the WARC bands; an inverted L (with one elevated FCP radial) for 160; separate delta loops on 20 and 15 with their apex up about 30' and an H-Doublebay for 6. No towers are allowed in this development so I am limited to wire antennas but they work fairly well. The good news is that I live about a mile from the Atlantic Ocean and the Waccamaw River, which is partially saline, flows about a quarter mile behind our house and the wetlands abut our back yard.

I am an active contester and DXer (Honor Roll: Mixed and CW). I am a Life Member of ARRL and a member of FOC.  I am trustee of the SC FOC and will sometimes operate in FOC events as KM4FOC, including the May 2013 75th Anniversary Celebration of FOC. I also belong to the Carolina DX Association and the South East Contest Club.  I am a former member of Yankee Clipper Contest Club, the Order of Boiled Owls of NY, The Wireless Institute of the Northeast and the Concord (NH) Brasspounders.

For major contests, like CQWW, I often go to other places to operate and have operated from NY4A,NQ4I and K2LE/1, domestically and AH6XX, HC8GR, CR3L and V31SX, internationally. In Nov. 2013 for CQWW CW, I was part of a M/S operation as PJ7W along with K2LE and W2LK and our wives.  In Feb. 2014, I was part of a M/2 operation at NY4A for ARRL DX CW.  For the 2014 CW CQWW, I operated from PJ4A along with W2LK, K4BAI and KU8E. 

In addition to ham radio, I also have acted in numerous area community theatre productions; have pretended to play golf, albeit badly; and done some writing, mostly non-fiction but a few short stories with a novel bubbling away in the background.  My wife Betty and I have one other dependent living with us, an eight year old golden retriever rescue dog named Daisy.  Walking her provides a fair amount of exercise.
