No, the callsign is not a vanity call or a contest call.
I enjoy HF DXing, particularly while mobile. 6m is fun too.
New Mobile Station in December 2014! The same 2008 Toyota Tundra, now equipped with an Elecraft K3, Elecraft KPA500 amplifier, and Hi-Q Piranha 4-80 antenna. The nicest part of this upgrade is 500W on 6m mobile...I was always able to hear much better than I could be heard.
Home Station (currently QRT): 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.
