HAM 61 YEARS ( MAY 25 1952-May 25 2013)




 

I'm a VHFer-I love the DXing part-I do very little rag chewing.I enjoy working, on 50 mhz, a weak F2 signal on cw from a distant country or during the Summer on E Skip working multi hop EU or AF stns.

I also enjoy the SSSP contacts on CW to JA during the summer E Season.

I'm on 144 thru 1296 (except 902-03)-working Aurora,E Skip,tropo or Meteor scatter.

I've been On VHF since 1958. I Don't do EME & the only digital I do is CW.




 

Some memorable times include-

50 mhz-On F2-Working FR5DN or FR1GZ Reunion Island (Indian Ocean)on 10/30/01 Via F2 16746 km(best DX)

222 mhz -On E SKIP (very rare) to CT,NY,OH,PA,VE3 (2047 km).

1296 mhz-On tropo-Working long distance to FN02 in NY (1569 km)or EM85 in NC. I have 17 states.

144 mhz-On E Skip-Working Cuba,XE3,WA,CA ,VE2 or ME (2377 km). Also on a trip to Upstate NY I caught VP9 on as I passed thru N/E OH & into PA. On other trips I've worked NM & FL.

144 mhz-On Tropo To the East-Maine (2377 km-Best DX).To the S/E Florida Keys EL94, CUBA EL83 To the N/W EN19 Manitoba & DM79,DN70 in CO & DN71 in WY.To S/W N. Mex EM 65, XE2 DL95

144 mhz-On Meteor scatter (old style on CW or SSB-No digital -using my ears -I have worked CA,VE4,VE5,XE3,VE3,plus many other states)

222 mhz-On Tropo- MA FN32 (2058 km) EL96 in Florida. 222 mhz. is one well kept secret of how good a band it really is-Very close to 144 on tropo & almost as good on Aurora.On M/S have worked 8 states + VE3.

222 MHZ-On Aurora best DX is CT FN31

432 mhz-On Tropo-Working FN31 CT (2069 km) & DN80 in CO, also XE2OR DL98. 432 MHZ Aurora is rare but I've worked some.

HF- Using Vintage Gear-About the only HF I do is with the SKCC gang (on SKCC I usually use W5WAX as my call) or during Winter when VHF is poor I work 80/40 CW. Using Drake 2NT/ Drake R4-A or Heath HW-16/HG-10 VFO. Speedx or McElroy Keys.



 

(1963)-erecting a 90' tower on 900' hill overlooking Lake Ft. Gibson, Ok.. A 10 KW MARS Generator is to the left.

I used this VHF location from 1963-1980 (I'm going up the tower to add last section (with the gin pole), I'm just above the tree line-I never owned a climbing belt at that time in my life, I would just hook my leg inside tower & work hands free-what a dummy -I'm lucky to be alive now) You can see a long rope extending from base of tower-that is how I lifted each tower section with my car, then climb tower to attach as I did all this by myself) Good memories!!

50 MHZ -Ant. was a 6 el HY-GAIN 66-B-it is above trailer at top of tree.

After tower was up ,

I put stacked 144 mhz-11 el Cushcrafts , then on 50 mhz I put the 6 el Hy-Gain & on pole where 6 mtr. was I put up 432 mhz ant.s-4-16's

on a (H-frame)Cushcraft

Old Tube Amplifiers -50 MHZ Johnson 6N2 T-Bolt (500 wts) built in Feb '60.-----144 MHZ Gonset 903 (250 wts) New in 1967.

My two most favorite Bands-50 & 144- A 3rd favorite wud be 1296 mhz




 

1964-My uncle, Sam Lemons, W5ALI (born 1897 TN) -A ham--1929-1974 (on his left) is my mother, Allene, (born 1903- here in Indian Territory-now Oklahoma) ,my oldest daughter Barbara (not a ham),me W5WAX, now K5SW -ham from 1952-present on Barbara's left.

--W5ALI was 1st generation,W5WAX/K5SW is 2nd generation,#3 Daughter Melissa N5KK - ham--1982-to the present- is 3rd generation of hams in family.

This Picture was taken during June 1964 VHF contest- located on hill by Ft. Gibson Lake.I Have a Grand Daughter Lilly, born in 1998 , who missed on Tech license recently,but will test again soon. She wants her call to be K5LIL ,then my K5SW call , if something happens to me. I hope she has a long wait!!.

THIS IS THE OLDEST PLATE I STILL HAD IN MY POSSESION-I 1st got tags in the 50's I think.These colors (Black & Orange) are Oklahoma State University colors-1968

My Early Ham Radio

My first ticket was in May 1952 as WN5WAX, I became W5WAX in fall of 1952-- My first rig was a 6L6 xtal osc with one xtal 3728kc (8 watts W/40 dipole thru homemade antenna tuner) and the rcvr was a BC-342-N, surplus I bought for $35-- I worked 33 states as a novice on 80 mtrs.

Next I got a 80 mtr command xmtr (now I had a vfo)---the first commercial rig was a used Heath DX-35 and VF-1 and from a Montgomery Ward catalog store I ordered a Hallicrafters SX-99--I used these radios for many years .

I even operated 11 meters (When it was still a ham band in the 50's on CW & AM).

My tickets- Wn5WAX Novice May '52------ W5WAX Technician Nov '52------ W5WAX General Mar'53-------- W5WAX Advanced May '66 -------W5WAX Extra June '66




 

Later (1958) I became interested in vhf,converted a DX-35 from 10 to 6 mtrs,used a Intenational crystal converter 50 mhz to the AM bdcst band as an

I. F., then to the SX-99 ,then I built a Heath Sixer, later built a Heath Seneca for better six and two work.-- I'm a pre-5 WPM ( I got extra in 1966-I Tested @ 20 WPM))

In 1977 I traded off my W5WAX and got K5SW because it had all three of my initals in it--however in Apr 1997 my wife and I formed a club (INDIAN CAPITAL AMATEUR RADIO CLUB) to allow me to get my W5WAX call back for it and when I am using vintage gear I use W5WAX to re-live earlier fun times.

I am also very active on vhf-uhf on ssb and cw, (not fm), on 50 thru 1296 mhz (except 902-03 mhz)-- I love it when vhf condx go beyond normal ground wave distance of 400 miles.

I learned of Ham radio in '46,when right after WW2,the hams could get back on the air. My uncle quickly re-built an old ten meter AM rig (from before WW2) & I talked over it to a hams son in NJ,who was 11 years old also & I was "hooked' on ham radio. But it was in the fall of '51 as a junior in high school that the HS biology teacher (Dale Reins ex-W5VJU-now KC5TL in FL) who was a ham & offered code/theory classes in the evenings, that I got my Novice ticket & built up my 6L6 XTAL OSC rig that I still use. Daughter, Melissa N5KK, is third generation and I have Grandaughters and two great-grandaughters & great-grandson-who knows ,maybe 4th & 5th generation coming up. Life has been great and am enjoying smelling the roses --check out W5WAX and W5VHF .


 

NOTE-All my gear is older, nothing newer than the '70's,for the most part.


 

50 MHZ

On 50 mhz I'm up to (149 worked & 149 countries confirmed for DXCC). My rig is a TS-600 (circa 1960's) with a digital readout (Electronic Speciality Counter) to a Johnson 6 N 2 T-bolt Amp (kit form-built by Bob Cooper K6EDX in Feb. 1960) @ 700 wts to a M2 5 el beam @ 80' with 1/2" heliax feedline. The M2 5 el was a 6M7JHV that an ice storm damaged.

.


 

Best DX FR5DN 16746 km

WAS #91 in 1970 ( I was the 1st OKIE to get WAS) & at that time I was the Easternmost station to work a "50 state" WAS .

WAC in 1981.

DXCC #412 in 2002

W5WAX '52-'76,K5SW '76- PRESENT - 50 MHZ DXCC COUNTRIES "NO EME OR DIGITAL"-ONLY SSB/CW/AM

G6SIX 1979 England

Here is a QSL I rcvd in 1979.At that time England did not have 50 mhz. We were working them crossband USA was on 50 Mhz & EU stations were on 28 Mhz. This station showed up on 50 mhz cw, I worked him & I rcvd this card. He also sent me a tape of my 50 Mhz sig as heard in England & of other ZS stations he heard.He never operated SSB to keep from giving away who he was to other G stations.I am told the operator was G5KW -now SK.

432 MHZ

When I retired (1999) I got off 432/1296 to limit climbing towers. But as of June '06, I'm back on 432 mhz.

Rig-Kenwood TR-9500,S.S. Amp @ 100 wts,24 el Cushcraft @ 77' Wid 1/2" Heliax.

Here are my 432 records

On 432 mhz- On Tropo I have 32 states (have 33 but never conf. VA)+VE3 + XE2-Best DX is CT - grid fn31, CO DN80 & XE2 DL98

1296 MHZ




 

1296 MHZ QSL Cards-17 States Confirmed (posted around outline of map) Map used to plot 50 MHZ Paths

As of 22 Sept 2007 I'm back On 1296 mhz with 45 wts -

Rig is a ICOM 251A, to a KK7B board, to a DEMI PA2360 @ 45 wts)-(Also I use a WD5AGO Product preamp in the shack) to a ( SSB TOWER mtd PREAMP) to a 55 el loop yagi (WD5AGO design) @ 82' wid 7/8" heliax .





 

I used to run a 2C39 water cooled amp & 50 wts, but sold it in about 1999 when I got off 1296 for awhile. I do also have a portable setup-TS-700 to a MMT1296 /144 (with an internal 10 wt. amp built by W7QJQ) & a 25 El loop Yagi, that I setup from my car on hills or loan it out to other stations.





 

In past times-on trips to NY to visit family-I'd run a mobile setup-on 144, 432 & 1296 mhz-Had beams mounted on luggage rack of car (just turned the car to point antennas) & made contacts all the way from Oklahoma to Upstate NY ( Early 80's -before grid mobiling became popular)-especially used it from a hill in FN12- NY & made many contacts -working AU on 144, or ground wave on 432/1296 to CT, NJ,VA, OH, IN, VE3 etc. from that hill- lots of memories from that era.

Here are my 1296 records

Tropo-I have 17 states-Two of the best DX are EM85 NC & FN02 NY. I currently have 64 grids---------------------------------------------------------------------




 

I have a I D chip that I run as a TEST BCN "de W5VHF/b EM25" on any VHF/UHF band ,on request.
