K7FL is located in rural Clark County Washington about 35 km northeast of Portland Oregon. This area is known for its forest and agricultural products, high technology industries and tourism. We are a short drive from the Pacific beaches and all season snow skiing on Oregon’s Mount Hood (elevation 3460M).

Radio interests include contesting (co-founder of the IH9P CQWW SSB DX Multi-Multi Team) and low band weak signal work. I’ve completed 5BWAS, 9BDXCC and all 200 zones for 5BWAZ. This has been accomplished with single element antennas only.
Other interests include mountaineering, aviation, and service through Rotary International.
K7FL’s primary station is an Elecraft K3/100, P3 and Alpha 91B. Antennas include a 160M Tee and a modified Hy-Tower; Hi-Z Engineering 4-square receiving antenna for 80/160M.
K7FL operates a propagation beacon on 28.2985 @ 15w from an HTX-100 into a J-Pole antenna. Reports are always welcome.
Hope to hear you on the bands!
