QSL image for KC9UJS

 

I was originally licensed as KI4YJE, in 2007 while living in North Carolina, but never really got involved in the hobby.

Fast forward to 2011. Now living in Illinois (since April 2008), I finally decided to exercise my privleges and get involved in the hobby. I had my call sign changed (sequentially) to KC9UJS to reflect my current region.

In September of 2011, I upgraded to General Class, and ad in 2013 to Extra Class.

I have enjoyed working quite a bit of SSB and PSK over the last couple of years, and am currently working on my CW (3 or 4 QSOs so far as of 7-25-2013)

QSL Direct, eQSL, and LOTW

My Home Station:

  • ICOM IC-718
  • LDG Z-11 Pro Tuner
  • Rig Blaster Plug and Play to interface to the computer running Ham Radio Deluxe (last free version)
  • Yeasu 7900 for 2m/440 FM

Antennas:

  • My newest and favorite antenna is my hexbeam (purchased in March 2013). I have it on a pushup mast and raise it up to around 40 feet when in use and back down to around 15 feet when not in use.
  • Skywire loop (150ish feet long piece of aluminum electric fence wire 20 feet up in 4 trees—(not a very square shape). Tunes up on all bands—not so great on 80 and 160 though.
  • 10 meter wire verticals – a 5/8 wave wire j-pole and a 5/8 wave collinear “super j-pole” hung in trees. – experimental 10 meter antennas that I’m currently using for our local 10 meter “Vertical Night” nets.

Mobile/Portable Station:Yaesu-857D,LDG Z-100Tuner,OPEC HVT-600 mobile antenna

*I am going to bring the 857 inside from time to time as well to work some 6m
