K3FGO celebrating 50 years- special event call sign K3FGO/50 from October through December 31, 2014

Received my Novice license at age 12, call sign KN3FGO in 1963. In 1964 I got my General and became an avid DX'er and contester with the Frankford Radio Club in Philadelphia. Advanced upgrade followed.

My rig is a Yaesu FT-1000D, with an Alpha 76PA linear amplifier. Using a 75 foot tower with a 4 element M2 20M4DX, with a 2 element 40 meter Cushcraft XM-240 yagi above it at 85 feet. Also use a 30M sloper towards Europe, Inverted V's for 17 and 80 mtrs, inverted "L" on 160.

A 720 ' Beverage is aimed at Europe and used on 160 and 80 and 40 meters. A youtube link to hear the Beverage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmNjvHxJWgw

The QSL card below was designed by my father for me when I was licensed in 1963. I have kept the card exactly as he drew it 50 years ago, in memory of him. I plan on continuing with this card for the next 50 yrs.

I am also active at our holiday location in Eastham, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. It is the Easternmost part of Massachusetts, and we are located on top of an 80' cliff overlooking the Atlantic ocean. I am active on 40 through 10 mtrs as K3FGO/1 in the summer and fall months.

At this QTH I use a Yaesu FT-890 and Ameritron AL-80B amplifer running 800 watts. Antennas there are a full-size 40 meter vertical, and an OCF dipole for 40-10m.

QSL 100% via Bureau or to the Monson, MA address above for both locations.

 

Below are some pictures from K3FGO/1 QTH in CAPE COD, EASTHAM, MASSACHUSETTS
