I operate up a slope at 400' under the oaks in the hills of Sonoma County, NE Santa Rosa, CA, on an Elecraft K3 (my first kit -- totally fun, may I build another one please?), with a Traffie 5-band Hex Beam, a Radiowavz DX-160, and a new to me Cushcraft R7. Current projects: getting W6BNB/sk Bob Shrader's Hallicrafters back on the air, raising the Traffie Hex Beam another 20 feet up, and the perpetual evolution of my mobile station TS-480HX with various antenna experiments.
Currently prepping for California QSO Party from my home QTH. Hope to QSO with you! 48th Running Of The CQP!October 5-6, 2013. 1600 UTC Oct 5 to 2200 UTC Oct 6. Go to CQP.org for details.
Day of the YL's HF Contest, May 18-19, 2013, terrible band conditions, but pointed the beam east (thank you W6XU for lending me your shack) got to know the notch filter, and enjoyed 12 hours of 334 qso's.
"Day of the YL's" HF Contest,
May 24th and 25th, 2014!

My dad was the original KU6F, licensed in 1937 as W6PBO in Sacramento/Galt, CA.
These are a few "remenant" qso's of his which came in to my qrz page after I was granted his call.
I saved my dad's paper logs and was able to confirm these QSO's with "Kama" posthumously.
OK, not legal by LoTW, but totally cool! Thank you, Kama san.
My father circa 1936 when at school in Sacramento.
