Hello from KG8GO.

Originally licensed in 1987 as N8SYK.  

Became interested in Ham Radio in the mid 1960's while sitting in on many operating sessions with my cousin, K8QDQ Vernon (SK) from Niles Ohio.

Vern was a regular on 10 meters and 20 meters and provided many phone patch operations for soldiers and their families during the

Viet Nam era.  His rig was a Swan "Drifty 350"  

I got re-interested in the mid 1980's when I hooked up with two co-workers and friends -

K3LR -Tim and WR3G -Scott (now N3RA) in Youngstown, OH.  

I've had the opportunity to operate from K3LR for a number of contests over the years. I'm pretty decent on Phone, but not quite good enough on CW, however I really enjoy it.   What a kick!

Home QTH is Hubbard, OH  which is equidistant from Cleveland, OH and Pittsburgh, PA - Just about 100km from either location.

For my DX friends, Hubbard is about a 4 hour drive frrom Dayton --  

Working conditions include wire antennas for 80 and 40 meters.  A Force-12 C3 atop a 45' tower and a 6 meter Yagi complete the system.  I have a new ICOM-7600 as well as an older IC 765 for HF.  A Heathkit SB220, built by WA8VSJ -Art is there for some extra kick when needed.

You may also occasionally catch KG8GO / M on the road when my XYL and I are traveling with my IC706.  When not in the shack, I enjoy competing  with our performance quarter horses, sailing and flying full-size and scale-model planes.  I've had my pilot's license since 1980 and have loggged approximately 1000 hours as pilot in command in a variety of aircraft.

My wife Stacey, share our home with 3 dogs and 1 cat. Our "outside" pets include 5-6 horses at any given time.
