Following my retirement in Oct 2012, I returned to Amateur Radio after a 20 year hiatus. I was licensed as KA5KFN in 1980, WK5I in 1986, and K5DC in 1999.
I am a charter member of the Lone Star DX Association. I recently regained my DXCC Honor Roll status. I've also been working on band-countries and I now have DXCC on 7 bands, 10M thru 40M. Still working on 80M and just started on 160M. I'm also participating in the CQ DX Marathon and Club Log Leagues.
Although it's NOT DX , I'm also taking part in the ARRL Centennial QSO Party. Obviously I will not finish high in the W1AW/p Leaderboard race since I only operate 2 of the 3 modes (CW & SSB), but my goal is to stay in the top 100 and also complete 9 Band Worked All States.
Currently using a Hex Beam by KIO Technology for 10M thru 20M, a delta loop for 30M, an inverted V for 40M thru 160M, and a Pixel RF Pro-1B Loop for enhanced receive on the low bands. Rig is Yaesu FT-1000MP MARK-V.
