My QTH Webster Groves is an old historic community right next to St Louis, Missouri.

Unlike most operators my age I came to the hobby later in life at age 62. I received my

technician's license in Sept 2011, upgraded to general in Jan 2012, and extra in May 2012.

 

I love chasing DX, IOTAs, and working special events.

I run 100 watts barefoot. My antenna system is limited to a couple of home-brew wire dipoles

cut for 20, & 40 meters and a Solarcon IMAX 2000 verticle.

 

I am involved with the local ARES/RACES group here in the St Louis Metro area and I am one of 

the net control operators for the SKYWARN severe weather service. 

Kenwood 590s with an MFJ-993B IntelliTuner for HF

Kenwood TM-281 for local ragchews

MacBook for logging with MacLoggerDX and runing the digital modes in fldigi

Windows 7 system runs WSJT-X for JT65 and JT9 low-power digital modes

Old Mac G5 is only for browsing misc ham related sites online

 

 

 

This is a shot of my original station with the venerable Kenwood 430s. Aside for the addition of a couple of

computers for logging and working digital modes the setup did not change much during the first year.

 

 

 

 

 

Life outside the shack...

I enjoy long distance touring on my 2002 Triumph Bonneville. This was taken during a three week

tour out west, in Wyoming at altitude. I'm wearing my heated gloves & jacket liner in

late June - one way to escape the heat of a Missouri summer. Later in the trip after we had

gone south into Utah to escape a big late-season Montana snow storm we were in summer

gear, dipping our neckercheifs in ice water to stay cool.

 

Crossing the continental divide in the Rocky Mountains on the return leg of the trip.

 

 

A rest break in Canada during another trip. This one was a solo ride to circumnavigate

Lake Superior - a lighter load since I was not camping during this trip.

 

 

 

I also enjoy riding this self propelled bike.

I ride my bicycle about 3,000 miles a year.

The bike: custom TIG welded steel fame, carbon fork, seat post, and handlebar with

Shimano Dura Ace groupo. Since this photo was taken I've swaped the Look pedals for

Speedplay and now run Mavic Ksyrium wheels.

 

My wife and I have worked together as commercial photographers for the last 34 years. 

This is our start at creating a web site. Much more to come when time allows...
