I am social DXer . Lover of pounding the Holy Brass - CW !! It's music to my ears!

I know CW is a dying art, but great CW can make the hairs on my arm stand up !

My favorite band is 40m !! But I am getting more interested in 160m now.

Original call was KN2MMS in the late 50s. As teenager was active CW Dxer with NC-300

and Viking Valiant to Mosley TA 33JR and 40m wire vertical running up a tall tree.


I am always learning new things in LIFE -

The best students make the best teachers.

they are TWO Sides of the SAME COIN !!!

Life is eager to meet our expectations !


Antennas : at 33 meters: 2el on each band 30 / 40 meters

( 40m elements are 50 feet long/ 15.15 meters)

at 30 meters height : 3 el on 20m, 4 el on 15 meters ( same boom)

80m has Delta loop hanging off tower Apex at 22 meters,

for 160m the tower is shunt fed , with radials on the ground.

Using 4 el vertical array on Receive on 160/80m made by HI Z antennas -

the elements are homebrew .

For 10m: 3 el monoband dual driven RAI beam on 10m Mast .

I have all 40 zones CONFIRMED on each of these BANDS

80, 40, 30, 20, 15 and 10 meters

160 m (TOP BAND) is a work in progress !


As KN2MMS in late 50s my first Transmitter was crystal controlled

World Radio Labs 680A using single 6146 ( I used light bulb as dummy load )


In the early years , KN2MMS - Globe Scout 680A and Hammarlund HQ-100

age about 12 years . My early " Elmers" were just a little older than me:

Jerry K2TNI ( now N4JR) and Dan K2YWE ( still same call) - both

still active and very skilled Operators !

Photo below is me at age 16, Call Sign was K2MMS

Below is recent PHOTO of "moi " - over 50 years later!
