Ham Member Lookups: 2874


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, and 2013 has come and gone. Was hoping 6m would open to Africa and Europe but no cigar. It's now 2014 and it too will be passing soon into 2015. It's October as I write this, the 2nd equinox of the year, and am hoping 6m will come alive one more time. I still have the 4 element 6m yagi up and the Butternut vertical for HF. Not sure what's next for antenna trials here. Maybe I'll try that V-beam again. It had spectacular receive, but tuning for transmit multiband use was finicky. We all know the way to go is an auto tuner right at the antenna feedpoint. But I have a Drake L4B amplifier that I'd like to use and 1.5 kw auto tuners can be pricey. I'd rather drop the money on a spiffy 292 straight 6 for my '55 chevy belair sedan! Or some disc brakes for the '68 Mercury Cougar I daily drive. Older cars with NO ECM's rule! 


Today, November 10 2014 going into November 11 2014 (GMT), there was a great 6m opening. About 2045z to 2145z, for me, I worked continental U.S. Mainly the west coast. Then from 0145z to 0200z I worked Japan and Taiwan. And then in the middle of a pile up, nothing. God hit the switch and the band was silent for me.


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. Of course midnite on 10m usually turns up a few ZS6's. And I plan on getting back in the cw novice segments and send some slow code. I still believe thats where the real fun for me is! So if you need a QSO with KH6, gimme an email and lets talk. Oh, and yes, the 6m rig is always powered up and monitoring 50.110 mhz.

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

Thanks and Aloha !
