I have been on the air since 1949, all with the call W0AIH. My main operating activity is multi-multi contesting from my QTH in west-central Wisconsin, known around the Upper Midwest as "The Farm". My wife Mary, WB0PXM, and I moved to our 120 acre farm in the country in 2000. Finally - NO TVI - no neighbor closer than 1/2 mile!
I am a retired Lutheran Minister having served my first four years in Ontario; then in Virgina, MN; then Grand Island, NE; and finally Fall Creek, WI. I retired on Pentecost 2000.
Towers & antennas started growing at the Farm in 1982. Almost all the towers are retired from broadcast service and then taken down by me and moved to the Farm. My favorite band is 160M; W1BB got me started when I was living in Ontario, and he found out that I had 160M capability with my Johnson Ranger and Collins 75A4. From 1958-1962 I operated as W0AIH/VE3, and 160M has been "my band" ever since. My favorite contest is CQ WorldWide CW!
My son-in-law is Paul, W0UC, who operates VHF contests from the Farm. My grandson Joe set up my webpage, and thanks to KA9FOX you can see pictures of the farm at: http://www.qth.com/w0aih
Thanks for looking me up on QRZ!
