Back in action with an Icom 718. The amp is a GI7B conversion from KD4BO and will easily crank out 800 watts though I keep it around 450 or so.�
Antennas are either a 40 meter OCF, ladder line fed, used on all bands 40-10, or a 40 Meter Vertical.
Also occasionally use an assortment of Hamsticks or Hustler mobile whips on the chain link fence rail in the back yard.
Have the Arrow J Pole for VHF/UHF if I ever get back on those bands.

Previous calls WN8NAZ (1964) WA8NAZ (1965.) I grew up in Dayton OH and was a member of DARA as a teenager. Attended the hamfests downtown before there was a Hara Arena. We used to go to high school dances on the Hara Arena site which was then called Wampler's Ballarena - before the hockey rink was built. Moved to northern MI in 1968 and was primarily in the Traverse City area until 1988. Since I have lived in 4 land since 1988 I got finally gave in and got this call in 2001. After a few years in Bonita Springs FL, I've mostly resided around the Tallahassee FL and Thomasville GA area for the last 20 years.

In the Fall of 2013 I relocated to Savannah GA where I've had a warm welcome from local hams like Jere KT4ZB and Bill K4WP. I'm looking forward to getting involved more with local ham doings.

Recently I've been having fun DXing on JT-65 with low power, usually 10 to 15 watts. I'd like to explore some of the other digital modes beyond RTTY and PSK31. Other Ham Radio interests are antennas, sweep tube amps, Treasure Coast and Gypsy nets on 7153 mornings, hamfests with tailgates or swap tables, SKYWARN and ARES member, and I'm a VE and ARRL certified Instructor. I get active in the major DX contests to keep the rust off, collect lotw confirms, and I actually enjoy the challenge of being a little pistol.

I am a web developer by trade, so of course I help my friends at the Thomasville GA (previous QTH) club by maintaining their website:


QSLS via LOTW or Direct preferred. For direct no sase is needed. I do upload to eQSL also. Bureau is ok too if you can stand the wait.

they keep me laughing

Harvey found somthing interesting. He likes to knock items on the floor where the dogs can find them; his way of getting them into trouble when I find said items all chewed up.

Maggie and Ben are both talented snoozers. Perhaps ham radio bores them? They also display talent at barking, begging, eating, squirrel hating, slapstick comedy, and cat tolerance.

*** the end (for now) - 73 and thanks for looking me up! ***
