No, the callsign is not a vanity call or a contest call.
I enjoy HF DXing, particularly while mobile. 6m is fun too. I'm working very hard for my elusive DXCC #331 for Honor Roll.
Mobile Station: 2008 Toyota Tundra equipped with a Kenwood TS-480S/AT, Ten-Tec Hercules II amp, and a High Sierra HS-1800 antenna. For 6 meters the Kenwood is barefoot with a Diamond HF50CX whip.
Home Station: TS-850S/AT with an old BTI LK-2000 (3-1000Z) amp driving a Gap Titan DX. For 6m I use a Ten-Tec 1208 transverter with the TS-850, an old Johnson 6N2 Thunderbolt, and a homebrew Moxon rectangle up about 25'. I extensively modified both amps, which were very interesting and fun projects.
I like having a laboratory and have a fair collection of HP and GR RF stuff from the 60s and 70s.
Thrilled to say that my son (pursuing electrical engineering at the University of Texas) is now KF5NIW!
Professionally, I am a Fellow-Corporate Technology at "a large wireless telephone company"
