Hi folks.  I was born in 1947 in Muncie Indiana.  I moved to Florida in 1990 where I got my ham license in 1997, as KF4QCT.  In 2000 I got my uncle’s call sign K9OIM (he is now W9ARI).  My brother is KB9NPU in Muncie, and nephew KB9MQL in Columbus Indiana.  I moved to beautiful western Kentucky in 2000.  I enjoy many aspects of Amateur radio, especially 6-meter SSB grid hunting on that magic band.  I have all states but Alaska confirmed on 6 meters, and too many grids to count.  The new rig is a Kenwood TS-2000, the old one an Icom IC-706MarkII-G that sometimes doesn't work.  My antenna system includes a 5-element M-Squared beam for 6 meters, a 12-element M-Squared beam for 2 meters, and an 18-element M-Squared beam for 70cm, all on a 60 foot tower.   I have 25 states confirmed on 2 meter sideband.  I enjoy working Amateur satellites (27 states confirmed) and have made 3 contacts with the ISS.  One of them was using a handheld with 5 watts and a rubber duck, so how about that.  I also have a 220MHz FM radio connected to a Ringo Ranger up 35 feet, and a backup Kenwood TS-440 for HF.  The HF antenna is a G5RV.  I’m a member of the Murray State University Amateur Radio Club (K4MSU) and enjoy the membership and people in the club.  I help as much as possible with being legally blind.  We have two repeaters on the MSU campus, one on 146.940MHz (PL 91.5) and the other on 443.800MHz (PL 91.5).  The 443 machine runs EchoLink, node number 207370, which I monitor often.  The club also has another repeater in southeastern Calloway County on 147.240MHz (PL 91.5) which I helped install.  We are installing a voting system on the 146.940 machine with remote receivers throughout the county.  I scan several calling frequencies so if in the area, give a shout.
