Ham Member Lookups: 18243

 

I am an active member of our local repeater group and several VHF and HF contst groups. I divide my time between repeater engineering, DXing and Contesting 160m-mW. I have been on several 6Y5, J75, St. Barths (TO5RZ) and VHF contest (K2TVI and N3EMF) DXpeditions making it all work out of a suitcase for HF.

My home station is based on an Elecraft K3 as it is the only new HF radio I could find for under $10k that is worth spending several years Ham budget on. After using the radio in several contests, I can agree with most everbody, this is a stellar radio.

The amp is my trusty Alpha 78.

Antennas are a 3 el Steppir at 51' AGL on a WT51 crankup. And... Full 80m 1/4 wave (62') self supporting vertical with lots of copper in the ground. It also has 48' of liner loading, switchable for 160 and a TMC military tuner at the base. ( I worked for TMC in the 80's) On 160 and 80 this is a magic antenna. Iis easy to break many pileups on the first or second call. I hear EU calling CQ with lots of W4 answering with no response from the DX. I make one call using the 1/4 wave vertical and he usually gets my call right the first time. When I'm having a bad day I do this a few times and I feel better.

At this time I do not QSL
