QTH #1 AUSTIN, Texas, Travis county  

QTH #2 WACO, Texas, McLennan county (GRID EM-11) 100 miles north of QTH #1 and 10 miles northwest of Waco, Texas (Most contacts are made from this QTH)

I got my license in 1978 and was active from 1978 to 1991.I retired the end of 2008 and decided to get active in the hobby again.

At QTH #2 the rig is a Kenwood TS590, PR781 Heil microphone and a Tokyo Hy-Power 1.2fx  amplifier and a Drake TR4C connected to a SB-221 amp. The external speaker is a Palstar SP30H. The antennas are a Wilson SY33 tri-band yagi on a Wilson 45 foot crank up tower , 40m Comtek quarter wave vertical mounted as a groundplane with 4 radials and a 260 foot doublet fed with ladderline.

At QTH #1 the rig is a Drake T4X and R4A made in1965.  The antenna is a homebrew three band vertical groundplane.
