Ham Member Lookups: 18400


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I am an Extra Class Operator. I operate most modes, and all bands thru 432 MHz.. My favorite pastime is to chase DX. I currently have: DXCC Honor Roll, 5 Band DXCC plus 160,30,17 and 12 Meter Endorsements. I have DXCC on Mixed (345), Phone (345), CW (315 )and RTTY (275). I have 337 of the current 340 DXCC countries confirmed. As of 05/01/2013, I have 2430 Challenge points. On HF, I have presently three stations in operation. The main station consists of an Icom IC-7800 and an Alpha 91B Linear. I use a Heil PR-781 microphone on the 7800. Station number 2 consists of an Elecraft K3, fully loaded, with a P3 and a W2, a RIGblaster PRO,and an Alpha 78 linear. I use a second Heil PR-781 microphone on the K3. Station number 3 consists of an Icom IC-781 with an Amp Supply LK500-ZC Linear. I use an Icom SM-20 microphone on the 781. All three stations are connected to an MFJ -495 keyer using a Vibroplex Iamic paddle for CW work. I use MMTTY for RTTY on the K3, and the IC-7800 has RTTY and PSK31 built in. For VHF/UHF I use Icom 75 series transceivers. IC-575H on 6 meters, IC-275A for 2 meters, an IC-375A for 220 MHz, an IC-475A for70 cm. I have a 70' Tri-ex LM-470 tower holding a Mosley TA-36 with 40 meters beam at 70' , a Mosley TW-23 WARC beam at 80', a Cushcraft A50-5 beam for 6 meters at 85', a Cushcraft A32-19 Boomer for 2 meters at 75', a Cushcraft 719B Boomer for 70cm at 83', and a Diamond X-500 on top for repeater use. A second tower, holds a Cushcraft R-7 at 56', an inverted "V" fed with 600 ohm open wire for 75/80 meters at 54', and the support line for the end of the "L" for 160 at 54',the other end on the 70' Tri-ex at 68' and the vertical riser. I have 2, 30 meter colinears at 90 degrees for 360 degree coverage at 60'. All HF antennas go through a Palstar AT-AUTO tuner and CX-Auto coax switch. All antennas (except the 30 meter wires and 75/80 meter "V") are fed with Andrews Heliax ranging from 1/2" for HF, to 7/8" for 6 meter VHF and 2/440 Vertical, to 1 5/8" for the 2 meter and 70 cm Horizontal beams. I use LoTW as my prefered QSL route, but also QSL direct to any stations not using LoTW. My XYL is also a Ham, her call is N8YVT, and my 17 year old daughter is a Ham, her call is KD8GIE, she is currently a Technician, but is studying for her General and Extra class. Hope to meet you on the bands, and good DX to all.

I upload to LoTW at least once a week, more often if I have been very active.

I do not upload to, or use eQSL.
