No, the callsign is not a vanity call or a contest call.
I enjoy HF DXing, particularly while mobile. 6m is fun too.
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. The latest addition to the mobile setup is.my Motorola Bionic smartphone! Running software from http://www.wolphi.com, I can use my phone for PSK31 and RTTY. While parked, of course.
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'.
Upcoming station improvements: Internet Remote Satellite station, 144 MHz kW amp for WSJT.
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!
