Ham Member Lookups: 15350


My legal name is William, but my parents called me Mark. Retired,I have Multiple Sclerosis and am living with it comfortably. My QTH is El Cajon,Calif.  My wife Terry is also interested in our hobby and is now licensed as K6TRY. She has already found an addiction to building wire antennas with our 2 Moxon antennas so far,on 10M and 6 M.

Terry does more than simply support my Ham Radio Hobby, She is actively pursueing the logging of all my past DX Contacts that I have recieved cards for from Via Buro. She also is my fabrication and building partner,and is becomming a damned fine groundman,for those times I simply MUST climb. And Today, 2/2/13 Terry Passed Her Tech Exam ! And another Update ! 2/16/13 Terry just Passed her General test!! and on 6/15/13 Passed her Extra Test successfully !! Her entry into the 2 meter potion of our hobby was graced by her homebrew  CopperCactus J-Pole antenna we built. Home Depot Hams,Yes We Are!!

The final note on the 4 month odyssey of Terrys accomplishments as a new ham is her vanity callsign that arrived as a one day late birthday gift-K6TRY. Next she'll want a ride on the International Space Station. Fine Business, Terry. I'm Proud of Ya !!

The altitude here is approx 2000 feet, and we presently use a TH7DX at 70' and a 7 el-10M Quad at 55',various wire antennas,a 5el-6M Quad at 30',and our Copper Cactus J-Poles for 2M/440. My radios are [Terrys Kenwood G707,Yaesu FT60r,] Yaesu 7900,Icom IC737-AT and Yaesu Ft-950 [new] HF radios.Terry has the Icom 706Mk2G and tuner[our GO kit] at her operating position and a 40M/17M inverted Vee fan dipole to learn and play with.

Below we see Kevin Gaudette[R] and Juergen Laser [L]helping place the re-built TH7DX on the mast in my elevator.Kevin Gaudette and Jergen Lazer assist in the placement of the re-built TH7DX antenna at KB6PJU


R.I.P. Luis - XE1L GUD DX-OM   it's too bad that the powers that be didn't send out proper QSLing on the Clipperton DX Pedition. I worked them all bands on HF and QRP also,as did my wife. No Cards.


This picture is Circa 1987,San Diego,Ca. Mt.Soledad Cross lower parking lot [then dirt].

Lots of fun on battery power Icom 737 at 5 watts on 10 meters. Mr. Armstrongs rotor used.

My deepest thanks to the landlord who forced me to move and buy a house to put up an antenna.


During 1985-6-7-8 my Elmer Guy-WB6HGJ and I made numerous trips to the Laguna Mtns.s to a ridge line called "Fred Canyon". We erected many different antennas, both stand alone, and tower off the camper.These shown,are the 3el/3band quad,and the 4 el40/80M inverted "V" bi-directional beam with alligator clip-on reflector wires,and one driver and 3 directors. Just put the reflector at either end for 3 el. one way,or 4 el. the other. The Forrest Ranger thought we were nuts! Guy and I worked a huge number of stations during all major contests back then.
