Thank you for visiting my page. Please call me Gil

I am worth +5 Points in the ARRL Centennial Challenge as I am a VE.

HISTORY

I was first licensed in 1991as KD4HDW. My mentors are "world class" hams KR4GZ; W4SLT, WA5KSC; W4STR; and others. One can never have enough Elmers.

I am currently running a Yaesu FT-950 into a Carolina Windom that is up 30 feet (9M). I also have a 6 meter beam by M2, and a 10 meter beam by Hy-Gain. I have a tri-band dipole for 20, 12 and 15 M. As back-up rigs, I have a Yaesu FT-857 and a FT-890

Despite having a "little pistol" station, I do enjoy contesting. 

I like the digital modes, especially JT65 and JT-9. RTTY is fun, but I do not use that mode as frequently as the others. I use a Tigertronics interface and ocassionally a Rig Tiny.

I also work VHF contest as a Rover station, which is really exciting. Thankfully, I am near the intersection of two grid squares that makes for day trips.

I am proud to have my DXCC for 10, 15 and 20 Meters in CW and mixed modes.  I also have WAS in CW, Voice and Digital. I presenlty have 153 DX stations confirmed vial LOTW. It has become extremely challenging for me to get to 155.

I have installed solar panels on my outside building, and am quite pleased with how well they work. This enables me to have an alternative energy source for emergency communications.

Current Projects:

I hope to install a Hexagonal Beam in the near future. I also need to add a 17M section to my fan dipole.

Affiliations:

I am an active member of the ARRL and the Keowee-Toxaway ARC. I ocassionally check into the SC SSB Net and attend area hamfest. I recently was extended an invitation to join the Swamp Fox Contest Group, and graciously accepted.

If you desire more information, here is a link to my personal Upstate Amateur Radio in South Carolina Blog: http://www.ks4yx.blogspot.com/

I am a proud member of the Swamp Fox Contest Group.
