Ham Member Lookups: 5373

 

I have been licensed in the Amateur Radio Service since 1970, starting as WN1NAO, then WN1TYX, then WB1DHW. I was one of the last hams to be tested before the Federal Communications Commission in Boston. I was hoping to get this call all along when they were initiated.

I am on HF with an Icom IC-735 using a homebrew off center fed (OCF) dipole using a Buxcomm 4:1 balun up about 45 feet for 80-10 meters and a half wave dipole for 160 meters. It's feed point is about 35 feet up, one leg is 30 feet high and the other leg droops down to about 10 feet at the end. I launch my antennas now using a 3-ounce weight with an E-Z Hang Square Shot. I use a Heathkit SB-200 amplifier, mainly on 75 meters to give my signal that needed boost. I love Morse Code.

 

I operate CW and SSB on the HF bands, primarily the Nerd Net on 3868, our litle group has been there most mornings and evenings since the 1980's. One of my favorite bands is 30 meters. I do spend time on VHF and UHF using my Yaesu FT60R, FT-2900R or FT8800R. I also have a Ranger RCI-2950 which I at time use mobile on 10 and 12 meters.

I like working some DX. There are some stations that just don't listen to the DX they are calling and find themselves interfering with the DX. I try to listen, listen, listen and listen some more, I hope everyone would, too.

DX CODE OF CONDUCT :

1. I will listen and listen and then listen some more
2. I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly
3. I will not trust the cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling
4. I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling him and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot, UP means UP, not transmitting on his frequency
5. I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before calling him
6. I will always send my full call sign
7. I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously
8. I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine
9. I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine
10. I will not transmit when the DX station calls other geographic areas than mine
11. When the DX operator calls me I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly
12. I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact

PLEASE NOTE, I DO NOT COLLECT ACTUAL PRINTED QSL CARDS anymore, I USE the QRZ LOG for my DX contacts.

When I'm in range I try to get on 147.18 and 444.55 repeaters in Bridgewater, 146.775 in West Bridgewater, Norwell 145.25, Marshfield 145.39 or 927.475. I monitor 147.345 in Weymouth mostly, along with Quincy 224.4 and the Braintree 442.5 repeater.

I use a  Motorola MTX9250 hand held and a Kenwood TK-981 on the 23 cm. band. I have a 3db Antenex mobile antenna on the van. The 900 band is showing signs of life with many repeaters sprouting up since 440 machines have gone off the air in southeastern Masschusetts due to PavePaws being the primary user. The 222 band is also becoming more active with a few more good repeaters coming on the air.

PLEASE NOTE, I DO NOT COLLECT ACTUAL PRINTED QSL CARDS anymore, I USE the QRZ LOG for my DX contacts.

SEVEN THREE.
