Update October 30, 2014
Replaced a 25 year old tribander with the Tennadyne T-6 LPA. This helped me work FT4TA on the WARC bands. Without the ability to rotate the antenna it would have been tough to impossible. Tnx Rog at Tennadyne. Also added an M 2 5 element 6M beam at 90 ft. to work with my 4 element at 30 ft. Now all I need is some propagation on the Magic Band.
52 Years and still going strong!
March 7th 2014 marked the start of my 52nd year of continuous licensing. Originally licensed as KN3SME I have been active on the air since that day.
This photo is the latest set up. The SWAN 350 and Brown Brothers paddle remind me of what I couldn't afford when they were new. Back then it was a homebrew 6L6 and an S85 receiver.
The main rig is the K3 which drives the QRO amp 160M- 10M or the modified SB220 on 6M. The TS700A drives a 90 W brick on 2M.
I am QRV from 160 M through 2 Meters. I spend most of my time at the two ends of the spectrum. I have worked 275 countries on Topband and 109 on 6M. On 18 Nov.2001 finished 6 meter WAS. Received 6M DXCC certificate #1053 on 11 October 2011. Tougher than 160M DXCC to acheive. My latest interest is RTTY/ PSK31 using just the K3. It is fun and challenging. On 16 February 2012 I received Digital DXCC # 3098. This was an all LoTW DXCC. I received the 275 country endorsement in August of 2014.
Acheived #1 Top of Honor Roll Mixed with 354/340 in September 2012.
I have also operated as G0/K3SME from Reading England and 7J1AJN/3 from Osaka, Japan.
I enjoy exchanging paper QSL cards but I have been using LoTW as it offers confirmation right away. I upload to LoTW and Clublog regularly.
I hope to work you soon.
