pix0Formerly worked and lived in Moscow, Russia, 6/1992--3/2004. Traveled all over the Former Soviet Union (FSU). No time for ham operation other than a little bit at my apartment in Moscow; across the street from the "Brezhnev House" ("дом Брежнева"). Couldn't keep antenna's on the roof of the building; they kept disappearing! The early 90's through the 1998 crisis ("кризис") were some tough times in the Former Soviet Union ("Бывший Советский Союз").

Prior to 1992 I worked in China from 1986-1991 with a base in Beijing. Operated from BY1QH, at Qing Hua University ("ching-hua") in Beijing. Also operated from BY9GA at Lanzhou ("lan-zho") in central-western China. I would overnight in Lanzhou on my way to the Tarim Desert in Western China. The chief operator had an old Chinese military straight key. A rather large thing and uncomfortable to operate for any length of operating time. W7PHO, Bill Bennett, the 'master' of the "W7PHO Family Hour" secured the "donation" of a Vibroplex bug for the station. Oh...that was a change! Lot's of other stories, Hi!

I retired in 3/2004 to our small 3 acre 'antenna farm' near Conroe, Texas!

YN2UO: March 2010, Granada, Nicaragua. Second time to Granada. Operated from Octavio Miranda's (YN2N) station. Great place and best hosts!
5K0CW: January 2009 visited San Andres Island and co-operated 5K0CW for the CQ WW 160 contest with two other op's. Had a terrible time with our antenna. The tall coconut tree that we used prior had died in the last year and we had no tall trees to hang the modified-inverted L on What was left of the tree, about 30 feet, we could not get any 'locals' to climb because it was dead!
9H3UO: March, 2006 ventured to Malta for a short TDXS DXpedition. Enjoyed that!
Later during 2006 CQWW SSB went to Granada, Nicaragua as one of the op's at YN2EJ.



Home: Antenna's are Tennadyne T-12 LPDA at 105 feet (10M through 20M) with KLM 3 element 40m Yagi above it. Have another tower with a homemade 2 element 30 meter Yagi at 85 ft.; a 7 element M2 model 6M7 for 6 meters at 75 ft.
And a4 element 6 meter Yagi (Only because I already owned it.) at 35 ft. on a modified swing-gate to have the Yagi pointing 'out' or away from the tower, allowing for more compass visibility:
A full sized 80 meter vertical made from Rohn 25g tower sections:
80 Meter vertical feedpoint:
160m: inverted "L" with 8 raised radials and 4 @ 400 ft~ Beverages. Beverages used for 80 and 160m. My Beverages are OK for 80m; but marginal for 160m.
2008-9 playing w/ reversible Beverages. Gave that up and went back to single direction Beverages. Too much signal loss/attenuation on return Beverage. Didn't have the losses to spare!
Property lines get in the way from making the Beverages longer! 160m much, much more difficult in South Texas than it was in Wyoming w/ almost nothing for antenna. Keep trying, though!
At least the winters are better here in South Texas after spending my life and working life in the cold-areas such as the Rockies, Michigan, Russia and northern China! It's my turn to be warm! Cool
