Ham Member Lookups: 16022

   

Thanks for all our QSOs and thanks for looking me up on QRZ.COM.

I discovered ham radio in the early 80s. In 1987 I learned CW and worked towards my first license. I was on air as Y38WF for a couple of years. From 1990 to 1997 I was DL6UST taking part in many contests, from the current DP9A station, mostly CW and HF. Other, possibly more important things took over in my life until 2002. Then, I got hooked again with the help of an Elecraft transceiver kit, the K2. I got licensed as KU7T and on the air with a small backyard dipole. Since 2012, I am on the air from a larger and mountaintop property. I am constantly trying to improve my antennas that help me work DX. My first HF yagi, the SteppIR DB18, rocks the air waves since December 2012. Just added a K3 and started playing SO2R.

I love HF contests and working DX, mostly in CW. My oldest daughter is 10 and is starting to help me in the contests. My youger daughter is 8, and she loves to beat her sister and make more QSOs. Future contesters, I think/hope.

I am hoping that I can run M/S in contests someday with my kids helping me. We will see :-). For the major contests of the year, I am member of the W7VJ multi crew; otherwise I like to participate casually in other contests from my home station.

Currently, I am part of the N1MM Logger + development team. A handful of very knowledgable developers, contesters, testers and writers; lots of stuff to learn and contribute. Lots of fun.

Current station:

Mountaintop QTH (see HFTA plot below)
Elecraft K3, Elecraft K2
Ameritron AL811 (500W), used as needed
SteppIR DB18 (2 el 40m, dipole 30m, 3 el 20m - 6m) at 18m height.

Future plans:
Inverted L for 160
something switchable for 80 hanging off the many large trees around my house

Last QSOs:

My terrain from HFTA. Blue = JA, Red = EU. Nice slopes.

73, Andy, KU7T (loc. CN97CL, 47.4844 N 121.77527 W)
