QSL image for K6RBS

First licensed in 1972 as G8GSG. I was very active on 2M AM from Herstmonceux in Sussex, England in the mid 70s. Moved to London and could be heard on 2M SSB and FM from various QTHs including Wandsworth, Hammersmith, Earls Court and Kew.

Moved to California in '86 after taking my UK CW test and becoming G0ERY. Active in California on 2M and HF as W6/G0ERY.

Took my U.S. tests (all of them) on March 3rd, 2001 and became AD6VT.

Replaced that with the vanity call K6RBS (my initials).

Current equipment is an FT950, AL572 Amp (with 4 Taylor 572Bs), Heathkit SA 2060 tuner and a G5RV @ 50' fed with ladder line.

I'm not an audio fanatic (folks running 4.5Khz wide ESSB drive me crazy - nobody needs to take up that much real-estate on the band).

I do however,like to hear and hopefully send crisp, clean audio that isnt excessively wide.

I use an W2IHY EqPlus box to add a little EQ, compression and downward expansion (to hide the fan noise from the AMP).

EQ in the radio is set to remove the muddy bass around 400hz and boost the highs.

TX bandwith is set to 2.8 Khz for rag chewing (2.4 for contests).

My mic is an Audio Technica AT2020 (available from Guitar Center). It does require phantom power but it is an amazing mic for the price (< $100).

The MIC has no PTT switch so I use a foot switch from a Electronic Keyboard. I have an an FT857 which I use for backup and VHF/UHF.

I enjoy chasing DX and contesting as well as T hunting.

I need lots of States and Countries for WAS and DXCC on the WARC bands... pease call me if you hear me on.
