QSL image for KM2KM

 

KM2KM has been in effect since 12 May 2010.

KA2OIG was my original call sign in 1982. In 2010 I upgraded to Extra and became KM2KM.

Overseas my call signs have been: /TG (Lake Flores and also Guatemala City); /HR6 (Morgan’s Cay, Bay Islands); /HK2 (Bogotá); HR3SJO (Scout Jamboree Olancho); TI2QRP (I was really into QRP then); OA4DBO (Lima); HC1CK (Quito, Guayaquil) and /WP4 (Arecibo Observatory). I have also operated from Newfoundland; Sri Lanka; Kosovo; and France.

Antenna farming has always beenone of my favorite pass-times. A few articles have been published by the ARRL including one on changing zoning regulations. The Antenna Farm is at www.merschrod.net/ANTFARM.htm

Overseas work is in the field of Rural Development - the practice of Development Sociology and Economics. After managing development projects overseas through 1998, we decided to take a vow of poverty and do short term consulting. The vow has been more or less successful!

The station consists of a Ten-Tec Delta II, an Argonaut V, an FT-857-D. Vintage Equipment consists of a Drake TR4-CWx/RIT that I have had since the early 1980s and a couple of sets of Drake Twins - one of the earliest "reciter" models and one of the latest, "C-Line" models. I use them on AM and also SSB and CW. There is nothing like the glow of "hollow state."

QRP I can't remember when the QRP bug bit, but it started with just turning down the gain on the TR-4CWx. HB rigs were next, then kits. the latest QRP rig is the Argonaut V - a real gem. The 1990s or so Oak Hills Explorer II for 30 meters is one of my favorites. ARCI Nr = 7272; MI-QRP =537; NW-QRP =212; and G-QRP = 5951.

Keyers 20+ years ago a mouse was going to be tossed out at the office - After gutting it I installed a CMOS II; it is still clicking along. Presently the project is a CMOS III into a trackball-type mouse. The sensitive micro switches in those "mice" are durable. They are light and easy to get the hang of.

60-Meters is one of my favorite bands, and, IMHO, was one of the more innovative changes in Ham Radio in a long time.
