Ham Member Lookups: 15406


I was first licensed in 1953 as WN1YIF, a novice then. I went on to get my General license the following year and in 1996 took my Advanced and Extra exam in the same day to become an Extra Class.

The picture is of my wife, Orise and myself on vacation at Sea Gull beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

My Equipment includes The Yaesu FT-1000D, MFJ 989C Tuner and The Ameritron AL-80B amplifier. I have the MFJ 1701 to switch antennas, the Rigblaster Pro for digital modes and the FTM-100D for 2 meters.

My antennas are: The Telex Hygain TH7DX up 50 ft. for 10-15 and 20 meters, The Alpha Delta DX-B at 45 feet for 160, 80,12, 17, 20, 30 and 40 meters, The Alpha Delta DX-LB Plus at 45 ft. used mainly on 80 and 160 meters, but sometimes on the WARC bands. I also have a Ringo Ranger vertical on 2 meters. I have a 30 plus gnd radial system of #12 bare copper wire running everywhere in my 50' by 100' lot about 3 inches down in the gnd which provides much improved operation on 80 and 160 meters. Due to the size of my lot, antenna size is extremely restricted on these bands. I have 154 DX confirmed on 160m and have worked and confirmed such DX as Chagos Island and New Caledonia on 160m which I pretty much didn't even expect to hear on 160m. Great fun!!!

My main interests for ham radio are in antennas and DXing. In October of 2009 I received The ARRL-DXCC Number 1 Honor Roll and I received my medallion for 2500 band countries on the DXCC Challenge plaque in 2013.
