"What Part of 'UP' Don't You Understand?"

Be a good operator and check out this video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5pox8STOZw


In 1960 I got my Novice License - KN8UNP at age 13. I lived in Lakewood, Ohio at the time. Within the next year I upgraded to general class and my call changed to K8UNP. At that time I was mainly interested in rag chewing and 160 meters. I was active locally in nets and traffic handling.

Having traveled by sailboat for about 1/3 of the world, I later found that I wanted to repay many kind hams for having provided me with means to keep in touch with family and friends.

I now live in Cooper City, Fl., but used to live in Kansas City, Charleston, S.C., and the San Francisco Bay area.  I am a retired Chemical Engineer, having worked for Union Carbide and the Clorox company.  I ran my own consulting group of NFPA Certified Marine Chemists for 30 years. Also ran 2 companies building boats, captained a SCUBA dive boat to the Bahamas for a while in the late '70s, and worked as a marine surveyor.

IN THE UPPER RIGHT PHOTO:  At 90 feet is an inverted vee on 80 Meters. I shunt feed the 116 ft Rohn tower on 160. Another crank up holds a Waller Flag antenna at 85 ft.for low band receive mounted on it. It is at the left of the photo above. It can be rotated from H. Pol. through Vertical Polarization to H. Pol. to match incoming wave polarization. NOTE the rotation of the boom in the photo. There is a 40 ft. crank up tower with 6 elements for 6 Meters and a recieve loop on 160 M at the top. The Tri-Ex 70 foot tower holds a SteppIR DB-36 plus 11 elements on 2 Meters.

At present, I use an Icom 7851 Tranceiver,and an Acom 2000A Amplifier plus a converted SB200 for 6 Meters.  Bill, NZ5N and I share the EME station, and you can see our 4X20 element M2 cross polarization yagis for 2 meters below. We are using 1.5 KW with a Lunar-Link LA-200 amplifier...

I have travelled and contested from ZB, PJ2, PJ7, KG4 and hold ZF2EM and C6AHR calls. Awards include  No. 1 DXCC on SSB and all but one on CW and Honor Roll on Digital modes. I also have 5BWAZ, and I just got 11 band DXCC (160 through 2 Meters) 

My personal mission is to encourage people the world over to PRAY FOR PEACE in the world. Visit www.prayforpeace.info for more inormation.

Below is my 34 ft. diesel pusher RV that I travel in with the 32 ft. vertical for HF. I use an IC 7100 with an ALS 500 Solid state Amp.


Here is the RV on a hill in Pennsylvania

The quad is my own design, which was written about in June, 2014 QST. It comes apart while travelling. Inside the quad I have mounted an Elk 2M/440 log periodic antenna, seen tilted up 30 degrees for satellite work. A TV rotator moves the pair around.


Here I am at the EME position at home, and I finally got 11 Band DXCC !

Here is the EME array at N8PR - Tnx to W6BXQ for the Photo
