Did tour at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba on Fence Line in 1981-1982, then FMF 1st Mar. Division. Did 6 months Okinawa with 6 weeks on Diego Garcia, British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT).

Joined U.S. Coast Guard and retired from CG in 1999. Haiti Ops just prior to Invasion of 1994. My favorite tour of duty was at Coast Guard Station CASTLE HILL, Newport, Rhode Island. 1987-1990. Absolutely beautiful area, Great Station and GREAT CREW. Locals were very nice.

Was assigned to 4 afloat units, plus the Search and Rescue Station, and a few other shore stations. Heavy Search and Rescue and Underway time have ruined knees, back, neck and hips. I am greatfull for the good health I have left.

Member American Legion, Life Member Disabled American Veterans, Life Member USMC Scout/S Association, Member NRA, Member ARRL.

You will find me on 28.400, 28.885 MHZ,  50.125 or 50.145, and lurking on 146.520 FM Simplex. I do NOT talk on repeaters.

It is my friends who got me interested in SIX Meters.

You can find me in the on4kst 50MHz IARU Region 2 chat.

Upgrading to General allowed me to talk on 20 Meters. But when I got there, no one cared, and in fact, the behavior of the other operators was embarrassing.

Working SIX is a pleasure. My son (KF5LMO) can sit near and listen without having to hear the garbage that is used on 20M. The Operators on SIX are a different bunch.

Icom IC-746PRO, 50' LMR-400 into Arrow 4 element 6 Meter beam at 20FT. Armstrong Antenna Rotator. Usually beaming at 320 Deg for PacificNW Alaska, Canada and Japan,or 040 Deg for NE USA, Canada and EU. For 10 Meters down to 17 Meters, an IMAX-2000 vertical using LMR400. For 20 Meters to 75/80 Meters, use a Buckmaster Off Center Fed 7 band Dipole antenna.

For 2 Meter VHF FM, Icom IC-v8000, 75FT LMR-400 into Diamond T23H at overall height of 40FT.

Any Shortwave listeners sending me a report will receive a QSL card from me.

It does not matter what class of license the HAM has, it's the CLASS with which the HAM operates that matters. -unknown-
