It's time to join up!
Please visit the above site - Try to follow to the Code of Conduct! (Listed Here)
My name is "Jim". My Dad, WB9MST - (SK), was my first inspiration in this hobby. Listened with a Hallicrafters SX-99. Studied code in my teens, but never took the time to get my license. After 40 some years of every-day life getting in the way, my neighbor down the road (K5BG) re-kindled my interest in this hobby. So, thats how I got here. Retired from an occupation of aircraft electronics and RF testing in 2007, only to work harder on our small ranch. In between mowing, building fences, etc.; I spend (relaxing) time building different types of antennas. I mainly work DX, and only on HF and 160.
Please Note: Last Bureau Card mailing was in July of 2014. You should get them soon. If not, please email me.
IMHO - If you are operating a remote transmitter and it is located outside of your DX Zone - you are not DX!
Below: Home brew 12/17 Meter beam on a 24' boom (built out of 3 old beams).
It has 4 elements on 17 M, and 5 elements on 12 M. The beam is about 45' above the ground.
Above the beam is a 12/17/30 D3W Dipole at about 55'.
Works well in pile-up's also.
Below:Hy-Gain TH7-DXX10/15/20 Meter beam on a 48' HDBXtower. Pointed twards JA land at sunset.
DX Code of Conduct:
1. I will listen and listen and then listen some more
(I would personally add: "Grow Up")
Thanks for looking - 73's, Jim
