|NX4E is Jim Broaddus.
I reside in the "Bear Creek" Community about 20 Km North of Panama City, Florida.
6 meters has peeked my interest lately, especially MS, ES, TR and Ionoscatter. I alternate between SSB and CW at 26 WPM. Also FSK441 MS. I am usually QRV at 1200Z until 1300Z daily.Station on 6 meters: Flex rigs 2 X 3K for diversity receive advantage. Tower #1 is 115' Rohn 45 with 2 X 4 el top mounted for low angle. Tower #2 is 2 X 5 el with Array Solutions Stack Match II Plus (phasing rely box). RF amplifiers were built by Lou, QRO King, to make max legal power.
My wife Bertie is also a ham. Her call sign KB4YKF. She is an elementary school teacher in Bay County. We are a "whole hog" family. My son James is KC4TEF and son John is KC4IHG. We operate Bear Creek Feline Center, a 501(c)(3) non profit, big cat facility where we make homes to 24 cats representing 6 species. Ham friends are always welcome for a tour. Join us as we get up close and personal with all of our felids.
