My main rig is the Yaesu FT-897D which covers 160-6meters +2 meters and 70cm. My antenna's consist of a duel band vertical for 2 meters and 70 cm and a computer ehnanced version of the G5RV called the ZS6BKW G5RV that covers 80 meters through 6 meters. The swr is 1.5 or below on all bands with the exception of 80 and 15 meters which require a tuner.
I was first licensed as a technician in 2002 and upgraded my license to General Class in January 2012. Two months later I upgraded to Extra Class in March 2012.
Recently I find that I am being questioned more frequently about my KG4 prefix and if I am located inGuantanamo Bay. I promise I am stateside and live in NC. Here is how to clear up the confusion if the "KG4" prefix you are working is either in the United States or Guantanamo Bay. KG4xx (two letter suffix) is in fact Guantanamo Bay. KG4xxx (three letter suffix) is United States. Some popular logging programs have difficulty telling the difference, I presume because they look at the prefix and throw up Guantamamo Bay. I never really thought about adding this to my profile until I had a stateside station all but argue with me that I was in Guantanamo Bay even after I explained the suffix difference between the two!!!
I qsl though LOTW, eQSL, direct and the bureau. I will also send a qsl via email at your request however these are not acceptiable for awards.
