Our Lake Cabin
First licensed in January 1982 as KA0MWZ in Topeka, KS. Was also KD0FH before getting my current call in 1987. We moved to northeast Kansas on 3 acres near Onaga in May, 2010. I operate mostly HF CW from the home shack and our lake cabin in Missouri on Table Rock Lake but can also be found on SSB during the winter with a great group on 1.947. I use an Elecraft K3, Yaesu FT-857D, or Elecraft K1 in the shack. My newest addition to the shack is a re-creation of my first Novice rig back in 1982 - took me a while to find them but I now have a working set of Heathkit Cheyenne and Comanche twins at the operating position. I take my K3 or the 857 with me to use at our lake cabin. An Ameritron AL-811 adds some power at home. Antennas at home are a full wave 160 meter horizontal loop fed with 450 ohm ladder line and an S9 43' vertical on the ground. On a 30' tower I have a 2M/440 vertical, a home brew 12M/17M rotatable dipole, a Cushcraft A3 tribander and an 80M doublet fed with ladder line. At the lake I have an 80M doublet and a 160M full wave horizontal loop both fed with ladder line. The mobile station uses an IC-706MKIIG or FT-857D depending on which vehicle I'm driving and an Outbacker Jr antenna. My XYL Mary is N0HLV.
Geratol #864, FISTS #6279, Ten-X #44362. After over 24 years I finally got my DXCC (40,327) so it's obvious I'm just a casual DXer :). Also recently added QRP CW 40 meter WAS and 160M CW WAS.
