I was first licenced in 1988 as KB9ANF. I enjoy DX'ing and spend most of my time on the digital modes, particularly PSK31 and RTTY. I also enjoy Shortwave listening and repairing and restoring old radios, especially tube types, and building and using tube type and crystal receivers. I'm also an active ARES member. Besides radio I like hunting and fishing, and also photography.

Update: Lately I have been spending much more time on CW, and also am now operating a Winlink Gateway station. K9ANF-10 RMS packet 1200 baud on 145.050, and K9ANF-5 Winmor HF 500 and 1600 bandwidth on 7.072 and 7.101 mhz center frequency respectively.
 My Station: Txcvr Kenwood TS-590; Amp Heathkit SB-221; Tuner MFJ-989D; Antennas OCFD for 80m 40m as an inverted vee @ 45 ft; Inverted el for 160m @ 45 ft; Trapped tri-band dipole for 20m, 15m, 10m @ 40 ft.
 Wire antennas are raised and lowered with rope halyards on crossarms, allowing them to be raised, lowered, and serviced from the ground.
 For my Winlink station I am running a Yeasu FT-450 through a MFJ-949
tuner to a 40m inverted vee @ 35 ft.
NAQCC # 6334

A single 6C8G regenerative receiver. Circuit taken from the 1942 Handbook.
A Medium Wave preselector.

One of my favorite toys.

Tri-band trapped dipole for 10m 15m 20m just below crossarm. The tri-bander and the wire antennas are broadside East-West. Wire antennas are raised and lowered on halyards. 9ft colinear for for 2m on left lower side mount for my VHF Winlink gateway. 10m vertical dipole made from two 11m 102 inch whips on right lower side mount.

Feed point of the 160m Inverted el with impedance matching coil. The feed point sits directly over an 8ft ground rod with radials attached
