Ham Member Lookups: 520


I go by Doug.

I passed my Technician license test in August 2012, then upgraded to General in December 2012 (former callsign KK4LBU), upgraded to Extra in August 2014. I am really enjoying logging DX contacts!

My QTH is about 135 miles West S.W. of Washington, DC at 1,700 feet above sea level, about 1/2 way up a mountain, on the West side of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

For HF I have recently replaced the old 1980's era Icom IC-735, with a new Kenwood TS-2000, barefoot 100 watts. A home brew broadband hex beam (K4KIO design) 35 feet up on a home-brew tower covers 6 through 20 meters. A home brew ladder line fed 264 foot long inverted Vee 160 OCF dipole, apex about 35 feet up, is used mostly for 40 through 160 Meters.

The Kenwood TS-2000 has HF/VHF/UHF capability, so a couple home-brew 2 Meter & 70 cm. antennas have been added, and a couple dual-band Baofeng HTs, for local VHF/UHF use.

I got into ham radio to enjoy making 2-way radio contacts, not to hang certificates on the wall. My reward from this hobby is the personal satisfaction of logging DX contacts using barefoot radios & home-brew antennas.

I have no desire to wallpaper the radio room with QSL post cards, or to stack them in shoe boxes. I upload LoTW, eQSL, QRZ log daily. I much prefer modern electronic QSL verifications. I do understand that the traditional exchange of QSL post cards is still Very important to some hams, so I will return a paper card if you send me one direct to my QTH address.

Sticky stars on world map above represent DX contacts all over the world from KV4ZY & prior KK4LBU callsigns.

Occupation is self-employed gunsmith, doing repairs on antique & obsolete firearms.
