Thanks for stopping by.
Started radio back in high school around 1970. Received my first novice license WN1RTP foolishly let it expire due to other interest.
Re-joined the hobby in1987, KA1QWD. Upgraded to general before a my novice ticket arrived so only operated that call for a few week then received N1FDX. Upgraded to advanced shortly after, then extra around 2003.
Operate mostly ICOM equipment, IC756PROIII for HF, IC-910H for VHF and satelitte, and a IC706MKIIG as a backup to all.
Vintage Drake TR4C station which I operate occationally and a Yaesu FT-817 for QRP and travel.
Ussually operate either SSB, RTTY or PSK
For antennas I use a DX Engineering 43' Vertical with a Icom AH4 tuner remotely controlled at the base of the antenna. Constructed a universal controller so I can use it with all radios. Also a W5GI Mystery Antenna diople and 3 element beam for 6 meters. Small satelitte array in the attic and slinky dipole which also has a remote tuner located at the antenna.
In the mobile I also use an Icom IC-706MKIIG with HamSticks. I use a remote tuner at the antenna feedpoint also and sometimes just a radom whip for multiband operation.
73, See you on the bands.
