I was first licensed in January 1976 as WN0RTL & upgraded to General in May 1976 as WB0RTL. I upgraded to Advanced in June 1981 as KC0FJ & I upgraded to Extra in April 1986 as NX0I. I briefly held the Vanity call of W0WG but elected to go back to my NX0I call.
My Old Station at the time consisted of the following 3 Towers. Tower 1: 120ft. Rohn 45G with a 3el 40m(42ft boom) M2 @ 122ft, a 7el 15m(44ft boom) DX Eng. @ 90ft,& a 8el 10m(48ft boom) DX Eng. @ 70ft.
Tower 2: 100ft. Rohn 25G with a pair of stacked & phased KT34XA's at 102ft. & 50ft.
Tower 3: 60ft Rohn 25G with a Hy-Gain TH5DX at 62ft.
Pair of phased & steerable 80/160 meter home brew verticals
80 meter DX Eng. 4 square
Lastly 6 steerable 550ft. beverages NE, E, SE, SW, W, NW
My New Station:
I am currently running a Yaesu FTdx 5000 and a Hustler 6BTV vertical with 17 & 30 meter add on's as I now live in a restricted sub-division. (Quite a let down from my last QTH)
I sometimes can float a quarter wave baloon after dark for 160 meter operation if I have enough Helium.
I am just getting started with digital PSK-31 & RTTY and am having alot of fun. The software I am running is Ham Radio Deluxe with Digital Master 780 5.0 Beta thru a SignLink-USB Integrated Sound Card.
Just got started with this at the end of December 2009.
I love contesting and try to work all the major contests, cw, ssb & rtty.
QSL VIA W0-QSL Buro, LoTw or eQSL is ok. If you QSL direct, please include an SASE.
Ex:WN0RTL, WBORTL, KC0FJ & W0WG
