Ham Member Lookups: 4179

I  recently relicensed in 2006 after a long absence from Ham radio, and am excited to be back in the hunt for the elusive DX station.

I purchased a small farm 60 miles southeast of Amarillo, Texas and came to realize what a great operating environment it would be for ham radio.

So now I'm building up my station and antennas. Currently, I'm running  a K-3 plus tokyo hy power amp to a 3 element steppir beam at 90 feet. On 160, I use an inverted L, and on 80 I have a full quarter wave vertical. My 90 ' tower is a homebrew affair that allows me to lay it down using the falling derrick method. I hook an old electric wheelchair motor to a winch and power it with my golf cart batteries. It works gr8 and I have to lower this tower about two times a year to make various repairs. Much better than climbing!

My QTH is a small, isolated farm out on the flat, windy, Texas high plains prairie, at an elevation of 3200 feet, (out in the middle of nowhere), in Briscoe County, which is one of the lowest populated counties in Texas. I enjoy the isolation from the city and have very low noise level.

 

73 and good DX!

Mike
