Licensed as K8CXM since 1962. Retired from IBM in 1999. Married with two children and two Grandkids.
Rig currently is an Elecraft K3/P3 with the matching KPA500. Antennas are a K4KIO Hex beam at 10M for 20-10, a ground mounted HF2V vertical over 32 radials for 40/80M, and a ground mounted 30M vertical over 20 radials. On 6M I use a 3 element Innovantenna LFA yagi at 10M. Prefer CW DX'ing, with only rare appearances on SSB, usually 6M.
I do some HF RTTY, but really do like JT65 and JT9 low power. Currently I have conatcted 106 entities with these modes, running no more than 30 watts.
Finally applied for Honor Roll at 333/354, but the addition of K1N, E30FB and VP8STI brings me up to 335/357. It only took 50+ years! Pratas, Scarbourgh, Bouvet and DPRK remain.
