Thanks for visiting my page. I got my license back in 2006, and on the HF bands casually since 2009, then got a little more serious in 2010, and have never looked back, I also enjoy classic muscle cars, or any type of car really. Right now working on putting together a 1993 Mustang GT, 347ci Stroker, about 450 HP, This car is fun to drive.
347 Stroker being built for the Mustang.
I am a professional automobile tech, with over 20 years in the business.
Important QSL info:
I prefer LOTW, EQSL.
State side stations: SASE, please put you address on the return envelope. This is the way I send them out, NO SASE No card. Sorry but I dont collect them, I will be more than happy to send you one, if you need one under the above listed conditions.
DX Stations: Again prefer LOTW or EQSL, however if you need a card, Bureau of Direct is fine, Direct, SAE, Put your address on the return envelope, and $1.00 USD will be fine, it costs about $1.10 to send a card out to ya, again I have no trouble sending you a card, and if I need yours I will do the same. Thanks so much, and I am very happy to work ya.
Some Pictures of the shack enjoy!
Radio FTDX 5000, got just the plain model, with the 300hz filter, this thing has a great reciever, second to none!!
Next, Zero-Five ground mounted vertical, with 120-50 foot ground radials. If you are woking me on 40M, 80M, all modes,or 20M digital this is the antenna I am using. Use it for digital on 20M because it seems to hear a bit better that the 27 footer, but on SSB no differance.
antenna is 4 inches in diameter at the base and tappers off to 3/8 of an inch at the top, I have it guyed at 15, 25, 45, feet.
When on 40M or 80M, I use this shared Apex loop array to recieve, makes a huge differance on recieve, stations that I cant here when on the vertical are 100% copy on the loop. and the signal to noise is wonderfull.
For the upper bands 20M - 10M I use the Zero-Five 27 foot ground plane vertical, works real good for what it is, I have it mounted on a 12 foot post about 120 feet away from the house, I use to have it on the house, but works better in its current location. I will eventually replace it with an 10 element Optibeam.
