Howdy!

I'm Gary, KB0HH, from EM06vu (at the contest station in northwest Oklahoma .. .. Alfalfa County). We operate HF and weak signal VHF/UHF, from the "Bunkhouse" which is a wood shop, metal shop, kitchen, bunking area, and of course, ham radio shack. I am a retired school administrator, industrial arts teacher, and coach.

My wife June, KC0CEX, is a psychologist (every contester should have one in the home) and my best companion! We have traveled a lot, spend a great amount of time with our grandchildren, and most weekends at the Bunkhouse..

The contest station has 4 rotating towers, 6 meters, 2 meters, 222/432 MHz, and microwave. The HF antennas are a full 1/4 wavelength vertical for 160 using the 30'X120' shop as a ground plane, 192' J-poles plus inverted vee's at 80' for 40 and 80 meters, 3 elements on 15 and 20 meters, and a 5 element on 10 meters. The VHF/UHF bands use multi-beam arrays on 50, 144, 222, and 432 MHz with 1296, 902, 2304, and 3456MHz using parabolic antennas. There are radios for every band (some spares), 13 amplifiers,10 computers,7 X 220 VAC outlets, 108 X 120 VAC outlets, 60 X 13.6 VDC conections, 220 amps of AC available in the shack. solar heat in the floor, a wood heating stove,central heat and air, plus extra cooling in the shack if needed .. ..which is quite often during contests! The amps have more BTUs escaping them than does the central air!

There is a total of 225 DBd of gain here at the Bunkhouse. 160 Meters is the only non-gain antenna used at this time. I believe in gain before amplification! There are more antennas coming, divergent ones for 6M and 2M.. .. we will be pointed more than one direction at the same time!! We just flip a switch!

Look for KB0HH from EM06vu in the contests, sprints, and openings. We operate multi-op-high-power in most of the VHF/UHF contests and multi-op-high-power in a few HF contests. I spend most weekends at the Bunkhouse with VHF radios on and listening!

QSL to the Kansas address. I go there sometimes to answer my mail and get my hair cut. Who would want to leave this place if a band was open!!

73, Mr. Gerb
