First licensed in 1982 as KA0MWZ in Topeka, KS. Was also KD0FH before getting my current call in 1987. We moved to NE Kansas on 3 acres near Onaga in May, 2010. I operate mostly HF CW from the home shack and our lake cabin (pictures above) 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, Ten Tec 30M QRP CW rig, OHR 100A 40M qrp CW rig or a Ten Tec Century 21 CW rig in the shack. I usually take my K3 to use at our lake cabin. The K3 is a great portable rig. 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 fed with ladder line. The mobile station uses an IC-706MKIIG 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.
