If you have recently worked me on CW, thank you for your patience. At 72 years and 58 years a Ham I have decided to get back on CW after 50 years of non-CW operating. I am old, slow and rusty but I sure do enjoy it. I really appreciate your going slow(QRS). Thanks. (SKCC#8846 and a devoted ARRL member for 60 years.)

My Dad, Walt/WA7WOX(SK) started me in Ham Radio and I got my novice as WN7BAD in 1954 followed by W7BAD and KL7GBN. My novice station was/is an HeathKit AT-1 and National NC-98 which you can see in left of the picture.

In the picture is my assistant op, Sir Winston of Turnagain, a Tibetan Spaniel SPCA rescue.

I particularly like the HF-digital and CW operating.Occasionally I still use my first station, at the left, of an AT-1 and NC-98. My contemporary station is an Elecraft K-3 for my primary digital(PSK31) and CW operation and occasional SSB operation. My main amplifiers is an Ameritron's AL-80B. I also have a KX-3 and KXPA 100W Amplifier which can drive my ALS-500M amplifier when needed. I use this back up station for wilderness kayaking camping, emergencies and when at my daughters home in the Yakima area. (I love everything about Elecraft.)

For antennas I am using a Hy-Gain TH3-MK4 3el/20-15-10 up 40 feet and a Mosley TW-32XL 2el/30-17-12 beam up 55 feet. I also have assorted 160/80/75/40M dipoles/long wires and a 40M vertical but I most often use my 80M loop on the low bands.

My wife Susan, Winston and I live on a few acres on Turnagain Arm on a bluff 200 feet above high tide on the shore of the North Pacific Ocean near the junction of Cook Inlet and Turnagain Arm. We always have lots of moose around the house and even sometimes get to see the Beluga Whales go by.

You can almost always find me on the Alaska-Pacific Emergency Net on 14,292, M-F at 8:30 AM AST/ADST or 9:30 AM PST/PDST and The Alaska Snipers Net, daily at 6 PM AST/ADST at 3920.

After living all over Alaska for 48 years I am always pleased to give recommendations on travel in Alaska.

Susan and I are retired professors(history, teacher ed and adult ed). We started teaching 48 years ago in Alaskan "bush" village elementary schools, have 3 daughters and have lived in Alaska off and on since 1966. Post retirement I became an ordained(Berkeley -GTU/PSR) UCC-Congregational minister. In the summer we like to canoe/kayak with my portable Ham gear.

Please QSL direct to the above address and include a self addressed envelope. Stamp is not necessary.

73. John Bury - KL7QZ
