First licenced as a novice WN1IJY in 1956, Windsor, Connecticut. Worked up through Conditional to General as W1IJY. In 1969 moved to California, upgraded to Extra and updated to W6LYR. In 1976 moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico and updated to K5JK. In 1981 moved to Boulder, Colorado and stayed with K5JK to end the call sign "flip-flopping".

HF rigs are a Ten Tec Corsair (sentimental favorite - not shown while being modified with upgraded audo chain) and an Elecraft K3. Accessories for the K3 are a Pan adapter, KPA500 500 watt amplifier, and a KAT500 500 watt auto tuner. A recently acquired (swapfest) Heathkit SB220 linear has been "tricked up modified" and added to the equipment. A coax switch routs the K3 output to either the KPA500 or the SB220. A Heathkit monitor scope and directional coupler support the SB220. The Palstar AT2K provides antenna tuning capability for the SB220.

The QRP station consists of an Oak Hills Research single band (20 meters) CW transceiver. Home brew solid state linear amplifiers at 70 and 140 w  give the QRP exciter a boost when needed. Two meter and 70 centimeter operation is provided by Yaesu and Alinco transceivers.

The small yard and close-in house limit the HF antenna farm to a N-S aligned G5 Junior (40 - 10 m), an E-W aligned "inverted-V" G5 Junior, a 26 ft capacity top-hatted vertical (40-10 m), and dipoles for 15 and12 meters. A homebrew Moxon array is used for 6 meter operation. Ground plane, colinear and J-pole antennas round out the farm for VHF/UHF operation.
