UPDATE 21 OCT 2016: home QTH in North Texas.
I was QRV from Quarry Island which is part of Wister State Park in LeFlore County, Oklahoma. This qualifies for the USA Island program. Number is OK028L. 18-21 Oct 2016. This is the first activation of Quarry Island. (LOTW is fine for USAI Awards but if you want a QSL I will have to print some from my computer but include an SASE please and $2 for DX is fine).
Traveling again starting 1100 UTC on 27 Sept 2016 until probably late Oct or early Nov. Listen for location, Will update here as I can and LOTW as possible. If not sure of location just ask or email if about a prior QSO as I keep good records.
<> I like to ragchew on CW but sometimes work a few contest - so I guess that means I am flexiable from a few seconds for a DX or contest exchange or 30 min qso!!
((NOTE: Take a look at Aug 2016 QST letters to the editor - see first letter! I almost feel 'published' hi hi))

I have written an article "RVing and Ham Radio" and QST turned it down for publication so my daughter helped put it in a web page if you are interested you can see it here: http://n5pht.weebly.com/ We use a different RV these days since that was written - current Ham Station on the Road:
We sometimes travel in our RV and so far I have operated portable from 18 or more States and it has been fun.
You can see from my RBN report I am busy on the bands!!
Been a ham since 13 May 1986 and active off and on until about 2000 and very active since then.
Antenna Farm: Tennadyne T8 log at 80 feet on the top of the tower. This covers 20-10 meters. For 30, 40, 80 and 160 meters I use an inverted vee dipole fed with ladder line to a balun and then coax into the shack. Also use a 80 meter sloper.
Primary Station: KNWD TS-590S and generally run 100 watts. I have an Ameritron ALS-600 solid state 600 watt amp that I use from time to time. Well, I do love chasing DX and here are my awards thus far on the DX chasing:
