I was first licensed as WDØARR in 1977 in Columbia, MO. I moved to Platteville, WI later that year and got the call WD9HTA.
I upgraded to Advanced and was KB9KN for a short while, getting KB9F in 1979. I moved to North Dakota in 1981.
I got the call KNØA which I held until 1999. In 1999 I got the vanity call NØRF.
My wife is NØLG and you can find info about her on her qrz page.
The main station is the Kenwood TS990S and Acom 1000 into a PalStar AT-Auto.
I use the W2IHY 8 Band EQ and the EQPlus for audio shaping, and use a variety of microphones but most often a PR40 Heil.
I measure the output with an LP100A digital watt meter.
I also run a Yaesu FTdx3000A. I drive a VL1000 into the AT-Auto and measure the output using the Alpha 4510 3KW wattmeter.
There is also an FT991 rig that I use mostly for VHF/UHF.
The antennas are:
HyGain Explorer 14 for 20/15/10
Cushcraft A3WS for 17 and 12
Double bazooka dipoles on 30, 40, 75 and 160
I'm active on the digital modes, especially on SSTV using Rigblaster interfaces.
I was a computer support professional and love to mix computers and radios. I am now retired and every day is a Saturday!
