QSL image for KK2DOG

The name here is Mike and I'm originally from Northern California (Vacaville area) but I now reside in Northern New York near Watertown in Jefferson County which is about 70 miles (112 Kilometers) north of Syracuse, and about 30 miles (49 Kilometers) south of Ontario, Canada in Grid FN24. I've been a ham since 1999 and my previous call sign was KC2FTN.

My working conditions are as follows:

Studio A:
 
Icom IC-706MKIIG with a Heil GM-5 microphone into a W2IHY 8-band audio equalizer with an Ameritron AL-811 amplifier doing about 500 watts into an Antron-99 10-meter vertical which is a GREAT antenna for 10, 12 and 17 meters with a tuner. I also use a 124' end-fed "QSO King" antenna made by Maple Leaf Studio mounted horizontally at about 25' for the digital modes, primarily JT-9 or JT-65. On VHF/UHF I use the same rig into a Mirage B-5016G amplifier feeding a Diamond V-2000A vertical up about 25 feet.
 
Studio B:
 
Icom IC756PRO with a Heil GM-5 microphone into a W2IHY 8-band audio equalizer with an Ameritron AL-80B amplifier doing about 800 watts into a ground-mounted Hustler 6-BTV vertical for HF. I also use the rig on 6-meters with a converted Heathkit SB-200 mono-band amplifier doing about 500 watts into a 6-meter loop up about 25 feet.
 
Studio C:
 
Kenwood TR-7950 2-meter rig into a KC2GCR home-brew vertical dipole in my attic @ 25 watts.

I live near the "1000 Islands Region" in Northern New York which are islands that span the Saint Lawrence River between New York state and Ontario Canada and yes, the salad dressing was invented here.
