I started out as an SWL as a kid using old Junker radios and wire antennas. I moved up to a Kenwood R-2000 receiver and what a radio it was! I was licensed in 1991 and lived in Grid Square FN-21, high in the mountains. With a 13B2, a 424 B and a 50-5S antenna stack on a 60-foot tower, I could work many many miles on VHF and UHF. I enjoy working all the contests, both VHF and now HF. We have since moved into a small development and although there are no antenna restrictions, my “neighbors” would frown on any large towers and antennas. I now use a short 20-foot tower with a Cushcraft 50-3S 3-element beam on 6, a Rutland RA8-2UWB beam on 2 meters and a K1FO FO-22 22 element beam on 70 cm. For HF work, I use a Hustler 6-BTV vertical, a Flagpole vertical or a Maldol HVU-8 vertical with a Kenwood TS-2000 rig. For 160 meters, I have an end fed 70 foot wire, marginal, but it does get me on 160.  I am now in Grid Square FN-11, somewhat more rare than the previous Grid Square. I earned the ARRL's VUCC award #960 on 6 meters and WAS Mixed on HF. At my old QTH, I was very active on the Oscar Satellites using AO-10, AO-13, AO-27 and even AO-40 on Mode "S" before the satellite died. I QSL 100% using US Mail, LOTW and E-QSL.cc. Hope to work you! 73's Joe N3JNX.
