First licensed in 1970 as WN2NTI, upgraded to WA2NTI in 1972. Moved to Colorado in 1978, where I lived for 5 years and held AC0Y, mostly active on 2m there. I've lived in Washington state since 1983, and have been active on HF (and lately on VHF) as KX7L since 1988. I enjoy CW and RTTY contesting, chasing DX and ragchewing, especially on the digital modes. I'm currently working (slowly) on 5BWAS, 5BDXCC and VUCC. My station is an old Icom IC-735, and all wire antennas: a 1/4 wave inverted ell for 160, which I also use on 80 and 40, and a 44ft doublet fed with open wire line, for 30m through 10m. I'm back on VHF as well, with an FT-736 feeding a 6 el Yagi on 6m, and a homebrew 10 el yagi on 2m. I also like to tinker with equipment, particularly building QRP rigs, when I have the time. A recent addiction is Summits on the Air where I chase mountain top activators and occasionally make it to a summit myself.
