QSL image for K6ATZ

Hi, the name here is Joe, first licensed as a Novice in 1973. Never lost interest, just got distracted, and returned to ham radio with a Tech Plus in 1991, General and Advanced in 1997, then Extra in 2000. A four-letter last name starting with a "K" just begs to be a callsign, and yes I did pretend to be a DJ for a "KATZ-FM" as a kid even though I lived in W-land. Previous calls were WN2SWQ, KD6ALY, and KQ6MM.

HF Antennas:
• Optibeam OB6-3M tribander Moxon/Yagi
on a US Tower MA-40 (above left)
• Diamond CP8040
80m/40m vertical, tuned to the data mode ranges (not shown)
• CCDAntennas 75m/40m dipole, at 6' high along the fence on three sides (not shown)

V/UHF Antennas:
• InnovAntennas LFA Yagis: 6m 3-el (left), 2m 7-el (below), and 70cm 15-el (below)
• M2 23cm 22-el Yagis x2(below), 2m/70cm eggbeaters (above), 1.25m loops x2 (above)
• Diamond D220 discone at top of the MA-40 tower (above)

Rigs & other stuff:
• Icom 9100 (HF-23cm), 375A (222); Kenwood TK-981 (33cm); plus mobiles, HTs.
• Icom IC-PW1 amp; Palstar HF-Auto tuner
• Heil GM-4 and HM-iC mics
• Begali HST single paddle key, Kent KT-1 straight key
• DXLab with DX Atlas; WSJT-X with JTAlert-X/JTMacros; Romac Basic Equalizer

Awards:
• WAS — Mixed, Phone, Digital, JT65, (20m -1, 30m -1 CW -3, 10m -4, PSK31 -4)
• WPX — Mixed, Mixed NA, SSB NA, SSB +350
• DXCC — Mixed, Phone

Preferred modes are DX, contesting, weak signal, and satellites, plus occasionally analog and D-STAR repeaters. I support local emergency communications groups however I can, and have a solar-powered backup battery bank ready and able to serve.

For more pictures and info on my crank-up tubular tower project, a flagpole antenna I made awhile back, and the rest of my antenna farm, rigs and radio interests, see www.k6atz.us and follow @K6ATZ on Twitter.
