Ham Member Lookups: 5187


Jim was first licensed in 1959 as KN8QAL. After college, he got to work at the legendary Collins Radio Company in Cedar Rapids. No, he didn't work on the ham gear, but he did get to meet Art Collins.

Over the years, Jim has been active from locations in W. Va., Pennsylvania, and Texas from El Paso to Corpus Christi. He currently lives in Georgetown, Texas and works 80 through 10 on HF plus Voice and Packet (Winlink) on vhf.  Antennas currently include a Cushcraft A3S with the 40M option mounted at 60 feet.  He also has a 75M dipole at 55 feet, a G5RV at 35 feet, and a Butternut HF-6V vertical for 75 through 10.

RIgs include an Elecraft K-3 and an Icom 746 Pro in the shack plus several VHF/UHF radios (including one D-Star Icom on 2M) in both the shack and mobile.  The main mobile rig is a Yaesu FT-857D with a High Sierra screwdriver antenna that can mount on different vehicles.

A recent addition is an HF Digital station located at the NQ5L QTH active on HF with both Pactor and WINMOR capability but operated as a remote station for N5TW, and under that call sign.  Both stations are linked by a dedicated WiFI system that covers the 3.3 miles between the two locations.

Active in ARES and Texas State RACES, NQ5L currently serves as the Section Emergency Coordinator for the South Texas Section.
