Ham Member Lookups: 3942

Hello and thanks for stopping by! I was originally licensed at 14 with the call sign WN9KFD. Ah but girls got in the way and I lost interest in ham radio. The bug bit again and then upgraded all the way to extra class as a surprise to my dad and Elmer, (WA9YEQ). Too say he was happy would be an understatement. In the shack are: an Apache w/ an RME 4350, a Kenwood TS 820, a Globe Champion 350 w/ an HQ 180, an Icom 2100, a Kenwood TS 850 w/ the Heathkit SB 200, a Kenwood TS 870 into an Ameritron AL-811, not pictured is the Yaesu FT 726 for 2 meters, 6 meters and 430 MHZ. The XYL says, "You've got too many radios" I was quick to point out that her observation was faulty as I still have room on my countertop to add more! It didn't work. Anyway, all the equipment has separate center fed dipoles, with the exception of the 2 meter rigs having homebrew J-poles and a homebrew 7 element yagi at about 40 feet on 2 meters with a Mirage B2516 amp and a M2 6m5xhp on 6 meters with a Mirage B1015 amp at about 30 feet. The 70 cm antenna is an old Cushcraft 424 at about 35 feet. Work all modes, well, AM, SSB, SSTV, RTTY, PSK31, CW (as long as you don't mind a slow fist!!) oh yeah FM once in a while.

73's Dave QSL here or eQSL

Telescoping mast for the mobile operations. 20' while stationary and 12' while rolling.

Homebrew 7 element 2 meter at the top, Cushcraft 424 minus the reflector array in the middle, and an M2 6m5XHP at the bottom. All supported by a customized heavy duty 5' tip over tripod that was modified with a custom built rotor plate and upper support sleeve.

My homebrew generation 3 Halo. Made from 5/8" and 3/8" refrigeration tubing. I've made several 350 mile+ contacts from the mobile running about 150 watts.
