Ham Member Lookups: 2201

First licensed as KN8RMO in Champion, OH in 1960. Received General license K8RMO in 1961. Moved to CA in 1970 and received W6NRJ, a SK's call. Having given up on a return to the West Coast, in 2011 received W3NRJ for MD on the East Coast. 

Use "all wires" in back yard (garden) antenna farm. Antenna "A" is my best performer.  It is a 160 meter long almost-square Loop Skywire about 14 meters high. Antenna "B" is either a 4-wire vertical array for 40 meters, or a 44' Extended Lazy H, which is used  when operating 15-10 meters.  In winter I operate 160 with a 3/8 Inverted U and 80 with a 5/8 wavelength ground-fed sloper to a tree as antenna "B" to my top-performing Loop Skywire.

I am indebted to my Elmer, W8RZK, Joe, (SK) for his many hours of patient instruction and practical advice during my pre-Novice and Novice/early General days when in high school. His time investment with me during many evenings in his basement shack lead to a life-long hobby and a technical career.   Joe "Elmer-ed" numerous young hams in my community where I grew up.  All of us were amazed to watch him climb his tower to work on his Cubical Quad.  

I am now retired after 31 years in high technology business and, previous to that, a few years in Broadcasting, 

Beyond ham radio I enjoy gardening, time sharing, cruising, and the company of my XYL and grown up kids. My ham hours are spent experimenting with wire antennas and chasing HF DX as I approach my goal of 300 "countries" worked and confirmed--all with wires. Along with longtime ham friend, N6KD, I have enjoyed DXPedtion holidays to the Caribbean, operating as PJ2/W6NRJ, KP2/W6NRJ, and ZF2LJ.

TNX for reading, and CU on the bands... 73, Jim W3NRJ
