1.2 kW Mobile
Hi, My name is John,
I live just North of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd, VA.
I like to operate mobile, however, my log keeping mobile, leaves a lot to be desired.
My transceiver is a K-3 purchased just prior to the Dayton Hamvention of 2011, serial #5412.,and the KPA-500 amp, the beam is a DX engineering HEX BEAM at 38 feet. The controller is a Green Heron and antennas include a B&W folded dipole, an R-8 vertical and an OCFD for forty meters. A KAT500 is on order from Elecraft.
Maggie, is a four year old Labradoure Retriever, she brings me my shoes, my hat, my keys or anything I dropShe loves the water and tennis balls, I trained her to be a duck retriever, so far the rubber duck in the photo is the only duck she has retrieved. She adds to the confusion when I am operating from the car or truck.

I am getting my feet wet in the digital modes, after many years of being away from ham radio, I find it is a whole new world. So if you hear me messing up PSK-31 or trying something else which makes me look like a flopping fish looking for water, please be patient.
Thanks for droping by
