QSL image for KH6RH

If I remember correctly, I got my novice license back in the late 70's (WH6AHZ). My first rig was a Ten Tec Argonaut 509 and remember working the world with 5 watts and a dipole. My first elmer was KH6CI Bill. Today, I still try to recreate those charisma filled early ham radio experiences. Either way the journey is still filled with fun and friends. 73 & Aloha from the Hawaiian Islands.

2011 & 2012 has come and gone. Was hoping 6m would open to Africa and Europe but no cigar. It's now 2013, 6m is barely so-so here in KH6. Ocasionally I can hear the Wake Island beacon, but I could go on my roof top and throw a rock and hit the beacon antenna hihi. So the 6m 7 ele yagi has come down and a 6m 4 ele in it's place. For HF, I was using a Butternut vertical, and it was ok. I recently took it down and put up a wire V-beam, cut for 1 wavelength @ 20m. Tell you what, the receive is fantastic. But right now, trying to tune it for low vswr for transmitting, it is finicky and I now have rf getting in the shack. So I have some work cut out for me. Got to figure this one out.

I also inherited my grandfather's car, a 1968 Mercury Cougar, and my wife bought me a 1955 Chevy BelAir 2 door sedan project. So I'm keeping busy. I try to spend time on 15m in the afternoons, 20m early eves, then 40m mid eves. Then when the 40m lull rolls in, I listen to 80m. So if you need a QSO with KH6, gimme an email and lets talk.

If you would like to QSL, please send to : POB 662 Aiea, Hawaii 96701

Thanks and Aloha !
