Greetings from the Ozarks!

If we have worked each other before, thanks you. If not, hope to hear from you in the future. I am active in almost every aspect of amateur radio that is available to me. I enjoy Contesting, Ragchewing, and even SWL. I work SSB and Digital modes mainly, including PSK, JT65, RTTY, and Hellschreiber (contact me for a Feld Hell QSO). I am a Waterjet Operator at a local stainless steel polishing company.  I recently graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Technology Management from Missouri State University.

My Station

  • Kenwood TS-940SAT
  • Yaesu FT-450D
  • Palstar AT1500DT
  • Yaesu FL-2100F
  • Signalink USB
  • Kenwood TM-241A
  • Johnson Matchbox

My Antennas

  • Force 12 C3S Yagi on 30 feet of Rohn 25
  • 200 Foot Loop
  • 3 element 6 meter Yagi of undetermined origins
  • Homebrew J-Pole for 2 meters
  • Homebrew Collinear for 70 centimeters

Here you can see my C3s and 3el 6 meter. The wires trailing off were a 100 foot dipole that I have added another 100 feet to make a loop. The ladder line feeding it is 600 ohm made with ladder snap spreaders (easy, buy some).

A beautiful day in the Ozarks, fishing!

 

 

A Tribute to the previous holder of the callsign NØVV, Richard A Kolter

Richard was born on July 2, 1943 and passed away on Friday, December 17, 2010.  Richard was a math teacher in Winona, Minnesota for over 32 years.  He was also the superinetendant of the local golf course as well as an avid ham.

All of these things, plus a fine spirit and generous nature made Richard a fine man.  Upon his death, Richard left the bulk of his estate to his school district.  A whopping 2.88 million dollars!

After receiving this gift, the school district did some repairs and built a state of the art math and science center and named it after him.  I never met Richard, but I can only hope to leave that kind of impact on my world after death. God bless Richard and congratulations.

Thanks to WØTT for the inspiration to honor previous callsign holders.
