Greetings everyone: Please use the OMISS or CCN bureau or an SASE if you want a QSL card it's the only way for a QSL. LOTW upon request.
Retired (my x-boss says retarted), my wife of 47 years and I live in Hillsboro, OR 20 miles SW of Portland. My interests are family, nets, DXing, contesting, rag chewing and riding my Yamaha 1100 V Twin.
The picture is my first rotatable antenna, a Lightening Bolt Quad, with my nephew in the bucket. Amateur radio takes on a whole new world with a rotatable antenna.
Several of us in the Portland area owe so much for the help of these Elmers Kevin K7ZS and his brother Greg K7YDL. Both great elmers. They've mentored so many hams around Portland with so much but ask so little in return. They are our contest coaches and just plain great guys.
My equipment includes a TS 480s and Ham Sticks for the truck, a Wouxon UV3D 2M/440 for the truck, a TM 255A 2M for the house, a TS 830s, TS 590s and my TS 950 SDX. I guess you might say I'm a Kenwood guy! The amplifier is an American made Alpha 9500. My opinion is the best amplifier ever manufactured. Watt meters are a Diawa CN 801 and the Alpha 4510. The main antennas are Hygain 13 element 2M beam, a GAP Destroyer 43ft Vertical for 40M through 160M and a SteppIR 3 element with the 30/40 loop 6M through 40M.
Amateur Radio is such a great hobby. But on sunny days I also like to ride my 1100 Virago V Twin, so maybe some day we'll see Sturgis, ND. hihi
73 take care and thanks for the time to read this short bio.
