Please...I detest '599 TU' rubber stamp QSOs!  Life is much too short for that.  I prefer  to 'ragchew' and get to know those with whom I am in QSO.  That's why you will often hear me calling CQ, so I can better control the QSO, hi.  If you insist on a '599 TU' QSO, I can refer you to others...

About K5XK...At present, I'm using almost all Ten-Tec gear, which is especially amazing on CW with its QSK keying.  Gear includes an ORION I and OMNI VII , an Ameritron AL-80A amp with QSK, and a homebrew 2 el 5 band HF Quad.  

Former calls:  WA5BQI ('62-76), DA2ER ('70-73), DL/K5XK, OE/K5XK, and HB0/K5XK (2011).

I have been QRV 53 years. My XYL Debbie (N5WEX) and I live in the beautiful foothills of the Ozark Mountains in Northwest Arkansas.  Our QTH is in Benton County, Arkansas.  

I am a brass pounder, operating 99% Morse. Radio interests are ragchewing, occasionally chasing DX, operating Field Day with old friends & a little contesting. Former DXCC Honor Roll member.  Member ARRL, FOC (#1641), the old A-1 Operators Club, RCC, and locally, the Ozark Wireless Society, ARKAN Klub, and Bella Vista ham club.

73/CW Forever!  CU on the CW sub-bands!
