My RV camper and inverted mini G5RV up about 20 feet. It was a very windy day.

Dune restoration coming along nicely after Hurricane Ike.

Have not seen any of them yet, but they are slowly coming back.

Kemp's Ridley turtles


Texas Gulf Coast shrimp, some of the best in the world!

Full moon rising over the island.


I have been on the air for 30+ years, all (99%) on CW in the HF bands. First licensed in 1979 as KA5HLZ. Then in 1989 as KB5HRK. I upgraded to General Class and changed my call to K5KUA. (My uncle George, who inspired me was W5KUA (sk) ). I upgraded to Extra Class on June 25, 2010.

My rig is an ICOM IC-718 and I normally run about 75 watts out to a G5RV up 45 feet (15m) between 2 trees. I just put a vertical loop up for 160 meters. Also, I have put up a GAP - TITAN vertical. It is working very well and am now using it more than the G5RV. I have modified it so I can take it down easily and take with me to Galveston Island.

I was off the air for about 8 years as the kids were growing up. I became active again in 2009 after the kids graduated from college. My XYL and I bought an RV and we travel all around Texas, so on many weekends I am QRV from all over the state. Galveston Island NA-143 is our favorite place.

While there I will be working CW only on 40M thru 10M (mostly 20M and 40M) as conditions and time permits. I will gladly confirm NA-143 for you as long as you send me your QSL card with an SASE. Yes, I am old fashion and collect QSL cards.

I QSL 100% via LoTW and via bureau for all DX contacts. If you prefer direct QSL, please send to above address. For U.S. addresses, please send a SASE and please include your QSL card. Non U.S. please send your QSL card with a SAE (envelope with address) and $1 USD (green stamp) or 1  € Euro, 1-  £ GBP, 1- SFr, 40- рубль RUB, 100-  ¥, or 1- IRC (current).

If you are outside the U.S. and QSL direct and do not include the $1(green stamp) or current IRC, I will now have to reply via Buro. I can no longer reply direct to non U.S. without at least $1 USD greenstamp. Please keep in mind Postal rates to send out of the U.S. have now increased to $1.15.

If you prefer to receive your QSL via the Buro, please send me an email and I will send you my card via the Buro.

I always enjoy receiving SWL cards too ---

73, Joe
