My HF station is a Kenwood TS-2000. I am presently using a 250 foot loop antenna and my MFJ Versa Tuner III.
My six meter station is also the TS-2000. The beam is 4 elements up about 50 feet. I also enjoy WSJT on 6 meter High-speed meteorite scatter. I also operate 2 meter SSB with 11 elements at 55 feet using my TS-2000 and a Mirage B 2516 G amp.
I enjoy HF mobiling with my Yaesu 857D and a Atas tunable antenna on my Ford Ranger. I have worked many states and countries with only 100 watts from the mobile!
I am now doing QRP with my You-Kits HB-1B (5 watts) and the 250 foot loop antenna. It works great! What a challenge to work cw with 5 watts. I sometimes do QRP (1/2 watt) with my Rockmite on 40 and 80 meters. My SKCC # 1298 and NAQCC # 5722.
Recently, I have been using satellite communications. It is exciting and new to me. I have made several contacts with my UV-5R dual band FM HT and then numerous contacts on CW or SSB with the TS-2000 and my 2 meter beam & 432 halo. I am also working VO-52 and FO-29 with the 857D and a portable beam from the truck!
My other hobbies include - my family, reading my Greek New Testament and gardening. I am a born-again Christian and love serving Christ in the Church of the Nazarene.

Rockmite 1/2 watt QRP transceiver ---------------- HB-1B 5 watt QRP 4 band Transceiver
WA9UUE - when I was 17 years old - 6 meter AM. I still enjoy Amateur Radio but at a more mature age!
Doing "rover" or mobile USB/LSB satellites with Yaesu 857D and Rich KC9NHU using small portable beam!
