QSL image for KX4R

 

I have been licensed since October 1969. Novice call was WN4OPG , then upgraded to General in

1970 as WB4OPG. Advanced Class in 1971

until upgrading to Extra in 1978. Applied for new call in 1980 and received KX4R. Enjoy chasing

DX on the HF bands and have been active on

160 mtrs through 23 cm CW/SSB/AM. Also got hooked on collecting and restoring old tube type

radios (Boatanchors) and have enough to keep me busy for a

long long time ! Presently retired from UPS after almost 38 years and trying to get the station and

antennas back in order at my new QTH.

Located on a small ridge in SE Polk County EM73lw...one of the higher spots in the county, approx

1200 ft elevation a.s.l.

Tower #1 30' Rohn 25G

Cushcraft A3WS WARC Antenna for 12, 17, and 30, at 30'

Tower #3

Still a work in progress. Will have antenna for 10,15 and 20 and will be shunt fed for 160 mtrs.

Tower #4

Planned for 40 mtr yagi

80 mtrs will be wire antennas of some sort.

Equipment at KX4R:

HF: Yaesu FT-1000Mp MkV Field

Yaesu FT-2000D

Kenwood TS-2000X

Alpha 76PA

VHF/UHF: Yaesu FT-736R

144 Mhz pair 4cX250b's 450 watts

222 Mhzpair 4X150A's 250 watts

432 Mhz RF Concepts 4-110 100 watts

1296 Mhz 10 watts (amplifier in the works)

Here's Tim Malone with the boom of his bucket truck

fully extended to get the 1296 antenna on

the mast !

 

If you need EM73lw on any of the bands I have, I'll be glad to

set up a sked....just drop me a line at my email address.

QSL's are greatly appreciated and welcomed.

Hope to see you on the bands !!
