Greetings, my friends!!

I was into the 11 meter scene for many years and decided that the DX I was getting on 11 meters just wasn't good enough; I wanted to talk around the world.

So in 2010 I began studying online for my tech exam, which I passed in March of 2010.   After a few months I realised that as a tech my options (not to mention my band permissions) were limited, so I began to study online for my general ticket which I passed on 15NOV2011.   Update: have passed the exam for Extra Class Operator, 3MAR2014.

I began to get sick and tired of my call (KD8OAB;it's a mouthful) being screwed up on QSO, so I applied for and was granted my current vanity call, K8AEC.   This is very special to me because I managed to get the first initials of my wife and my three sons as my call.

My station: Yaesu FT-450D (100W max), Yaesu FT-8800R, Shure PG58-QTR studio mic, Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer, MFJ 993B autotuner, Antron99 vertical (10-17), homebrew G5RV dipole @ 30feet (20-80).   My latest antenna project was a 6 meter resonant dipole using an aluminum tent pole.   The antenna will collapse to about 3 feet length and deploy to about 10 feet.   Total price to build was $11.04.   Using HRD for rig control.   DM780 and JT65-HF for digital.   Prefered digital modes are PSK-31 and JT65A.   Interface is homebrew.   Computer is a custom gaming rig.   MFJ-936B small loop tuner for portable excursions.

ATTENTION: I will NOT log JT65A contacts who fail to follow proper protocol.   I must have grid and signal reports.   I'm not trying to be difficult, but there is a right way and a wrong way.   Those who follow proper JT65A protocols will get Eqsl and LOTW, guaranteed.
