First licensed in January 1982 as KA0MWZ in Topeka, KS. Was also KD0FH before getting my current call in 1987. We moved to our lake place near Shell Knob, MO in April 2015. I operate mostly HF CW 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. Recently picked up a Swan 500CX for more boat anchor fun. An Elecraft KPA500 adds power. Antennas are 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.
