/>My Name is Bruce and I live in Black Canyon City AZ

Really enjoy living here, It is in the High Desert so there is a wide variety of terrain here, From the low areas to the mountains all are just minutes away..

Hobby's Inc ATV riding the area and sand duning in California (Glamis)and now DX chasing on the HF bands

 

Here Is a pic of myself above the town of Crown King Late March.. Yes that is SNOW in AZ andI am frozen, Rode my quad 35 miles to get here in the rain/sleet snow and hail. And just 3 days before this it was 70 degrees..

 

For those that do not know the pic of the lizard is a Gila Monster.. I never seen one till I moved to this area and have been in AZ since '82

/>Here I am at 5000+ feet over looking the town.. Soon to be a trip with a radio and antenna up here also as you can tell I am transmitting from a "hole"

Ok just added a new HOME BREW 40 meter rotatable dipole Up on its maiden voyage.. Antenne works GREAT Thnx to K6IF for posting on net.. Mine is made a bit different but basicly the same concept...  photo IMAG2051_zps5fec866f.jpg  photo IMAG2050_zps54d137bd.jpg

And here I am at the KB7OCY station working W1AW/7  3.885 AM. What a BLAST that was using Vintage gear,

The Exciter is a Globe Scout 65A (right hand on TX switch) into a Home Brew amp (The Globe Master) 2x 304TL's modulating a 4-1000 The reciever was a Yaesu FR 101. 

 Let me tell you it was a handfull flipping switches logging and keeping everything straight,  Logged about 100 AM contacts that night and MANY was first time on AM or even 25+ years since they had run AM.....

 

Special THNX to Henry (KB7OCY) for allowing the use of his station for the event...

 

Also side note Henry got me hooked on AM now.  I am looking for some vintage AM equipment and also building my own 4-1000 amp (pics to come) as the build comes along. (Slow going on a small budget)
