Licensed in 1972 as WN5GGJ. Upgraded to extra class in 1988 after being bitten by the DX bug. Have 349 confirmed mixed 348 CW. Still looking for P5 on CW. Enjoy low band DXing,contesting and visiting with friends on 75 and 160 meters. I also operate mobile with a 706 MKII, Metron amp and a "High Sierra" antenna. Other calls held include WB5GGJ,KE5MP, WD5F, N5BT, N5RG and T32BO (1989 and 1999).
The rig at present is a Yaesu FT1000D. The amp is an Alpha 99. Antennas include a quarter wave 80M vertical, a Cushcraft 402CD @ 50 ft., a Mosley PRO 57B @ 70 ft.,a Cushcraft D3W @51 ft. and a coaxial inverted L for 160M. I use 6 880 ft. beverages for receiving on the lowbands. This summer (2011) I added a Hi-Z 4 square receive array for the low bands. It is a very impressive receive antenna system.
Hope to meet you on the air some day if we have not already met and if we have hope to see you again soon. See you in the pile ups. 73, Bob
