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'
16 element KLM 21' boom 2 mtr yagi at 35'
Tower #2 55' Rohn 45G
m2 6M7JHV 7 element 30' boom 6 mtr yagi at 55' fed with 1/2" heliax
m2 2m 5wl 17 element 33' boom 2 mtr yagi at 60' fed with 7/8" heliax

DB6NT MiMo 2344 44 element 10' boom at 75' fed with 7/8" heliax
Still a work in progress. Will have antenna for 10,15 and 20 and will be shunt fed for 160 mtrs.
Planned for 40 mtr yagi
80 mtrs will be wire antennas of some sort.
Equipment at KX4R:
HF: Yaesu FT-1000Mp MkV Field
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 !!
