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.


Visit my youtube channel for videos of the car, as well as other cars from some great car shows. I will also be posting some repair videos for those who like to fix the cars themselves, or just want to know what a certain repair is, so dont forget to subscribe to my channel, and check back frequently for some great repair and car videos. BTW this is a new channel as of 8/30/2015, so if there is not much there yet, there will be at least 1-2 new videos a week.

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.
