Thanks for looking me up!

I operate HF with an Elecraft K3 and FT-950 transceiver exciting a Yaesu FL-7000 solid-state amplifier.

I have a K4KIO hexbeam, and an end-fed Zepp. For receive, there is a DX Engineering Activie Receive antenna.

If you've never tried a Beverage antenna, I encourage you to do so! On mine, many signals are increased 3 s-units while the atmospheric noise is reduced at least 3 s-units. In many cases, the DXE receive antenna provides better S/N than the beverage!!!!

I've been an amateur radio operator for 38 years. In the early days, I operated a National NC-300 receiver and Heathkit AT-1 transmitter. Rob, W8RW was my 'Elmer' though we were the same age. We've been to numerous Hamventions since those days!

Other hobbies include music, camping, as well as flying both full scale airplanes and R/C helicopters.

May God Bless you!

You might be a LID if:

You call the DX station before you have any idea where he is listening

Every time you call a CW DX station, you hear: "up up up up"

Every time you call a SSB station they keep telling you the guy is working some lucky fellow named Split.

You're too lazy to set your VFO at least 5khz away from the DX's frequency before tuning your rig and amp

The DX station tells you he's calling another number or continent

You think that yelling your call thee times slowly is going to improve your chances to make the contact

The DX station gives you a signal report you ask him for his callsign

God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason!!!
