I'm a retired engineer - worked for General Dynamics / Lockheed Martin in RF and IR simulation labs. Originally got my Novice way back in 1974 and worked 40 meter CW with a crystal-controlled Heathkit. I was not active for many years, but got back into the hobby during the summer of 2013, a year before my license expired!

I am running a Yaesu FTDX-3000 into a homebrew fan dipole at the top of the house, mounted by the chimney, cut for 40 (15 on third harmonic), 17, 12, and 10 meters. A second homebrew fan dipole at the side of the house operates on 17, 20, 30, and 40 meters. And, yet a third near the same location is set for 17, 15, and 10 meters - this one is for my FT-450D which I leave on all day decoding JT65 looking for that next ATNO. Sometimes I operate it along with the FTDX-3000 using JT65 / JT9 on two different bands simultaneously using two instances of  WSJT-X.

For VHF / UHF I have the Yaesu FTM-100D System Fusion radio, two Baofeng UV-5R HTs, and an older Yaesu FT-8800. In the evenings I use the FTM-100D and a first gen FT-450 for digital mode HF to run a Man Cave station while watching TV (for pic scroll down).

I'm also interested in software defined radio and use it to visually augment my HF SSB operating with a band spectrum/waterfall display using HDSDR. I use the cheap SDR dongles and upconverters (see pics below) to extend the dongle's range to HF. The SDR is integrated with my HF radio and Log4OM logging program using Omni-Rig.

Lastly - I caught the DX bug and most of the time that's what I'm chasing. In between DX, I was able to complete two addidional WAS using JT65 & JT9 digital modes.

I QSL via direct, eQSL, LoTW, and QRZ. No need for SASE for direct - just send 'em and I will reply 100%. If you want a Texas Horned Frog QSL - I'm your guy! Logs uploaded to QRZ, eQSL, LoTW, and Club Log frequently.

73, Mike
