I enjoy CW contesting, chasing DX, and ragchewing. For the last 20 years I've operated 100% CW. Fortunately, I have been able to erect antennas for all bands from 160 to 10 meters on my city lot. I have a 65 ft. motorized Heights Tower that tilts over. The stacked antennas are a Force 12 XR-5 at 62ft., a 2 element 40m Force 12 at 66ft. and a 30m rotary dipole at 70ft. I use the same tower to support 2 half slopers for 80 and 160.
The station is set up for SO2R with a pair of K-3s plus an Acom 2000A and Elecraft KPA500.
When I was first licensed in 1957, I recieved the call KN5JZZ. Even after upgrading to General Class, the K5JZZ seemed to take forever to send on CW. Later, after a period of inactivity and letting my license lapse, I was re-licensed as WA5NUK. Soon afterwards I upgraded to Extra Class and received my present call, KZ5D. As an active member of FOC, I also am the custodian for the Cajun First Class Operators' Club station, K5FOC.
