After much prodding from my father, WB5ZOI – SK, I became KB5BOB on 12-31-1986 and kept the license till the upgrade to Extra in July 2007 as AE5CL. I did not like it so NX5O was snagged. I have also held KC6OO while on DXpedition to Palau in 1993. What a treat that was.
My main interest is RTTY and you can find me in almost any RTTY Contest. For RTTY my station is a Yaesu FT-2000D with DMU, Alpha 8410 and microKeyer II, 2nd HF Station is Yaesu FT-1000D, Alpha 78 and micro Keyer II for digital modes The Antenna’s are a 7 Element tri-bander at 51 feet with A Fritzel Windom for 80 thru 10, Alpha Delta Sloper for 160. I do enjoy trying all of the modes, from SSTV to ATV to PSK31…And CW from time to time.
I do work Satellite from time to time. The satellite station consists of a Kenwood TS-2000X, M2-2MCP14 for VHF, M2 436CP30 for UHF and M2 23CM22EZA for 1.2Ghz. Rotator is Yaesu G-5500 with EA4TX AZ/EL Control Board. I also have installed a M2 2M7 7 Elements for 2 Meters and a M2 2M5X for 6 Meters.
I hold the following ARRL Awards:DXCC - MIXED #41,827 DXCC - RTTY #2,433 WAS - RTTY #563 5BWAS - #3,077 Triple Play #415 VUCC SAT # 192 and am working on 5 Band DXCC
SMIRK - 6914
I QSL via LOTW and Direct with SASE.
If we have worked before many thanks and if not I will look for you on the bands.
