QSL image for N4ZAW

Greetings From

N4ZAW

I am a 61 year old retired utility inspector, living in a paid-for, tiny wood frame home with my XYL (Carol) and two minpins (M.I.A. and Bamb). Carol and I are Christian, anti-communist Florida crackers, (Carol, born in Arcadia, me, in Miami). We now live in Lehigh Acres, Florida, a large community just east of Fort Myers on the northern border of the Everglades.

This is our local club; http://www.fmarc.net/

 

That's me, above....

***************

The XYL, Carol and Giavani (another of my 11 grandchildren). One of my three daughters, Tina, her twins, Faith and Grace AKA; "Thing1" and "Thing 2"...

*************

Bambi and M.I.A. on a camping trip.. . M.I.A. snubbing the camera.

Most mornings since I've been retired, I can be found in the shack with my cup of fresh ground Kona coffee, and my old Friend, Bambi, snoozing on the footrest beteen my feet. My radio is tuned into 7.210MHz, sandbaging -- even though I don't speak much Spanish, they're a great bunch of patriots. Evenings, I likely can be found elsewhere on 40M. I like the "Hole-In-The-Wall" net, 7.880 at 10PM EDT (02:00 to 03:00 gmt ).

I QSL100%, card gets card... I also QSL all SWL reports 100%.� I've never been interested in 'contests', and I'm not really into DXing that much anymore. But I'm always interested in making new friends and rag-chewing.

I'm no longer a young one -- but I'm still a "whippersnapper" (and no, it's NOT me on the horse) lol

Here is some of myYouTube Stuff;

Please PM me if you happen to find one that doesn't link as it should., and I can and WILL re-post it. For some unknown reason, Youtube has lost some of my videos, and their links would then go nowhere fast. I have them backed up. They can't delete those, can they? I don't know why that happens, but hey -- I'm retired..... I have all day to put them back! :)

This is the actual lift. It went up like nuthin! Well,almost. :)



FLORIDA'S WEATHER CAN BE A REAL DOWNER.

This is what T.S. Debby left me with;


And all I wanted to do was straighten-out a bent element!
Go with your gut-feeling when inspecting your tower. If it doesn't look right,
DON'T GO UP WITH IT!

 

The pic below is my IMAX 2000 after a 2010 lightning strike.

These two pics are of my tower after a severe summer storm in July of 2011.The antenna WAS a Comet beam.

God must really want me to switch hobbies...

IT WERKS ON ICOMS TOO!

The Yaesu FT-857D was actually HARDER to read after the mod. I'm thinking about switching back on rthat one.

Well, that's about all the news as of 02/27/14.
