PREVIOUS CALLS: KN5UYJ - WA0JBU - WB8BQL - WA1ZRS - T5CB (Early 1993 from Mogadishu - FUN place !!)
My antennas are all homebrew, they are: Crossed, switchable, Inverted Vs on 80M at 180 ft (55m), NE-SW & NW-SE, a Linear-Loaded 47 ft rotating dipole at 200 ft (61m) on 40M, a VHF-UHF (to 600 MHz) LPDA at 194 ft (59m), an LPDA at 188 ft (57m) for 20-10M and the tower is fed thru an Omega Match as a vertical on 160M. Beverage antenna #1, NE-SW, is 480 ft long, Beverage antenna #2, SE-NW, is 600 ft long, both are a bit above fence lines. I like to chase DX and rag-chew, and make some interesting contacts and friends around the country and the world. I'm on the DXCC Honor Roll and have 339 countries confirmed on the current list of 340.
I currently use an ICOM IC-775DSP, TenTec Omni V, Ameritrons AL-80B and AL-82, all with Heil microphones and headsets with boom mics.
Some of the more interesting wildlife that I've spotted out here in the Texas Hill Country are: Black Bear, Mountain Lion, Bobcat, Whitetail Deer, Coyote, Fox, Javelina, Raccoon, Pocupine, Armadillo, Hawks, RoadRunners (Beep - Beep!) Eagles, Osprey (these seem to like to roost nights on my HF LP, they fish in a nearby river), Tarantula, Brown Recluse and Black Widow spiders, Coral snakes and Rattlesnakes, just to name a few.
Thanks for stopping by.
73 & gd DX, Chuck - KA1PM
