Kenwood TS-590S transceiver, Ameritron AL-811H amplifier, also a Icom IC-756pro2 which is strickly used on 6 meters.  The antennas are as follows:  Hy-Gain TH3MK3-S Thunderbird (10/15/20m), OCF dipole with a 4:1 Guanella Current Balun for 6, 10, 12, 17, 20, 40, & 80m.  Also a Hustler 6-BTV vertical ground mounted with 60 radials, and a Arrow 52-4S 4 element yagi on 6 meters.  I use a Begali signature for morse, along with a group of others which are just for the collection.  All yagi antennas and the OCF dipole are on a 40 foot Rohn 25G tower, located on a regular size city lot in the retirement community of Sun City West.  Sun City West is located 35 miles NW of down town Phoenix, Arizona.
OSL policy:
I strongly encourage LoTW confirmation instead of paper cards.  For direct QSL cards, as a common courtsey, include a SAE (Self Addressed Envelope) together with $2 if out side of the USA, to cover the return postage.  OSL cards received with insufficient postage will be processed via the bureau!       
Additional info:
I operate a CW station only, no phone or digital modes!  My interest in radio started after spending time in Vietnam from 1967 to 1968.  During my tour there I spent time at the MARS station and made a phone call via K7UGA Barry Goldwaters station here in Phoenix.  I had the pleasure of meeting Barry and enjoying his company in my first few years as a ham operator.  After a 8 year stint in the US Air Force I purchased a old Yaesu FT-101 and started studying the code and theory.  I took a class in Scottsdale Arizona and in 1987 received my first call of KB7CUD.  Two months later I upgraded to General and obtained the call of N7KBN.  After 6 months I passed the Advanced and the Extra class exams getting the call of KF7JF.  In 1996 they opened up the vanity system and I obtained the call N7RD which I have had since.  I am working my way toward my DXCC Honor Roll, I presently stand at 329 worked and 328 confirmed.  I hope to work as many of the great operators on the bands as possible, so here is to hoping you are the next!
