* Please call me "Alan". Jane(KE5DPG) and I live near Krum Texas which is located 35 miles North of Fort Worth and about 45 miles Northwest of Dallas. We spent many years in Southern Indiana and have friends and relatives there. I enjoy radio communications on all the HF bands with 10 meters and 17 meters being my favorites. I enjoy dxing and ragchewing, but am not fond of contesting. VHF and UHF are a lot of fun because of the reception range on simplex. I enjoy 2 Meter SSB along with 2 Meter and 440 FM. We have great repeaters in our area. Some of the repeater antennas are mounted one thousand feet or more above ground level. Several of these repeaters are linked to repeaters in South Texas and even repeaters in California.

* I operate a Yaesu FT2000, a Kenwood TS570, and a Kenwood TS 2000 as a backup. The Kenwood TS 2000 has been moved to the station backup and to work 2 meter SSB. A Yaesu FT 450D, and a Kenwood TS50 are now 2 mobiles. My HF antennas are a Mosley TA53M Yagi with 40 meter dipole, a Crushcraft R8, a folded dipole, an OCF Dipole, and sometimes a Double bazooka. In the winter time I install a shortened 160 meter sloper.  Tarheel screwdriver antennas for HF mobile. My amplifiers are a Tokyo Hi-Power HL-1.5 KFX with matching tuner, 2 Heathkit SB220amps, and 2 RM300V amps for 2 mobiles.

For boat anchor gear I have a set of Kenwood 599D twins and a Drake C line station coupled to a Henry 2K-3 amp.

In April 2012 I lost my main Tower in a storm. In the fall I replaced the tower with a new Heights crankup, foldover tower. The Mosley is in place and I have added Force12 yagis for 2 and 6 Meters. The Bazooka has been moved to the barn tower and the B&W BWD is in place on the new tower.  The bazooka has been moved to reserve and replaced with a OCF Dipole. I rotate wire antennas at the barn occasionally. 


* VHF/UHF radios are Yaesu FT7800, FT8800, and Icom 8000. Amps are Tokyo Hi-power HL-350DX and Mirage B 5018 G. Antennas are Diamond verticals and Par co-phased Loops or co-phased Delbert Loops and force 12 LFA yagis for 2 and 6 meters.

* Hope to catch you on the air someplace, sometime. "73" Alan KT5AL
