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 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. I also use a Par Electronics OA-50 Omniangle antenna for 6 meters. Sometimes I operate the FT-450 along with the FTDX-3000 using JT65 / JT9 on two different bands simultaneously using two instances of  WSJT-X.

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

My other side-hobby is buying used test equipment and refurbishing it, some of which you can see below.

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
