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 1998.
Current antennas include a Hexbeam by KIO Technology for 6M thru 20M, a delta loop for 30M, a Windom/OCF dipole for 40M and 80M, and a Pixel RF Pro-1B Loop for enhanced receive on the low bands. Rigs are Yaesu FT-1000MP MARK-V and FT-450.
I am a charter member of the Lone Star DX Association. I regained my DXCC Honor Roll status in 2014. I've also been working on band-countries and I now have 8BDXCC, plus I have a few on 160M and 6M. I also participate in the CQ DX Marathon and Club Log Leagues. I am NOT a good CW operator, but I'm getting better. I operate about 2/3 CW and 1/3 SSB -- no digital.
Thanks largely to W1AW/p stations, I now have 9-Band WORKED ALL STATES on CW. Still need DE, ME, VT, NV, AK & HI on 160M to complete the 8th band on SSB. All 844 contacts confirmed via LoTW. Discovered 6M in 2015 and so far I have 44 states confirmed.
REGARDLESS OF THE RULES, MY CONSCIENCE WOULD NEVER ALLOW ME TO USE RHR.
