Ham Member Lookups: 23891


My main radio is a Ten Tec Orion 2 driving an Ameritron AL-82 amplifier if needed while working DX or contests.  Antennas consist of a G5RV, 30 Meter vertical, 160 Meter inverted V, and dipoles for 17 & 30 Meters. I am mostly a CW operator but do play with other modes on occasion. I enjoy DXing, CW contesting and rag chewing. You will find me on all bands when they are open and I do a lot of activity on 160 Meters during the Top Band season of the winter months. I have been retired from SBC/ATT the phone company in Chicago since 2007 and just love it! Best job I have ever had and sooooo much more time for ham radio! The Orion 2 was my retirement gift. A wonderful contest radio. I work about 12 contests a year. In the summer I do a lot of mobile and portable operating with the Yaesu FT-857D that I just purchased in 2011. Pictures of my mobile set up ( my ham shack in the car!) and portable operations ( my ham shack at a picnic shelter!) are featured below. I use a pneumatic tennis ball launcer to get a G5RV antenna up 50 feet in the trees for my portable operations. Once that is up I will spend all day playing radio at county or state park picnic shelters, working DX or having rag chews. A great way to spend a summer day and not spend much money! In the winter months the FT-857D serves as a radio for a second ham shack in an upstairs spare bedroom for night cap QSOs or when I don't feel like going down to the cold basement on a snowy day! Those photos have been recently added below. So perhaps I will see you from one of my many locations soon.
