California FreeMason and Past Master
SW Hackett Lodge No.574
San Diego, CA

Been in amateur radio since 1976 and have held several call signs as I moved and upgraded. Then had the chance to get my initials and just had to do that. Started by building the Heathkit SB-104 which served me very well for 25 years. Then on to the Kenwood that I had always wanted. That served me for 10 years, until 2011 when I just had to have the Yaesu FT-2000. Only the 100 watt model, but I am really impressed with the quality of this thing and the ability to "hear-them-work-them" with just that 100 watts.

Love to chase DX with 10 meters as my favorite. Have 209 confirmed countries on that band. Most of that was done in the last sunspot cycle and really wishing for some good propagation to try to complete Honor Roll on 10, in the next few years.

Also enjoy just rag-chewing to learn more about the people I QSO with.

Thanks for looking and I do hope we can work on the bands.


Equipment

Picture is out of date since I now use the Heil PL-2T boom, and my trusty old Unidyne Model 580SA mic. I loved the Kenwood TS-870, but really wanted the newer technology of the Yaesu FT-2000. One great rig. The 2k drives an Ameritron 811H on seldom occasions, and out to either my Gap Titan DX or my Cushcraft MA5B. 

No longer very happy with the MA5B and will take it off the roof.  Would like a 30 foot tower with a Hex-beam on top, but too darn old and too darn scared to climb and put it up myself....
