Coming UP in May 2015 - NZ5N and I will be going to Cayman Islands (ZF) to operate EME (Moonbounce) for 5 days We have the call ZF2EM -- Couldn't get ZF2EME (they do not issue 2x3 calls)  We may try to work the SO-50 FM satellite and some HF SSB or JT-65 as time and antennas allow.

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 Hollywood, Fl., but used to live in Kansas City, Charleston, S.C., and the San Francisco Bay area.

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 7600 Tranceiver,and an Amp Supply LK800-A Amplifier plus a converted SB200 for 6 Meters. I have recently started dabbling in Satellite communications - the "easySATS" and EME. Bill, NZ5N and I put together 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, and hold KG4UN and C6AHR calls. Awards include 10 Band DXCC plus 96 on 2 M EME, No. 1 on SSB and Mixed, and all but one on CW. I also have 5BWAZ.

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 7000 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

Here is the EME array.98 Countries worked so far ! Tnx to W6BXQ for the Photo

May, 2014 NZ5N and N8PR in St. Croix, USVI for an EME DX-pedition on 2 meters useing the call N4M.  EME QSLs go to N8PR   Total - 210 QSOs,  42 DXCC Countries,  156 VUCC, WORKED ALL CONTINENTS (except Antarctica)
