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, but I hope to stay in the top 100.
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.
