[Recent visitors to this W4AUV QRZ page]
I was originally licensed in 1972 and have held the following calls: WN9JQS, WB9TVH, AD4YH. W4AUV was my father's call back in the 60s. I served in the US Coast Guard as an electronics technician [1974-1978] specializing in high power HF communications and radar. I'm one of those "old school" radio guys, operating mostly CW on the low ends of 40 or 80 meters. Currently I operate 99% CW from either my TS590 or a FT1000MP that used to belong to my friend N4HAF Neal (now silent key). Below is a picture of Neal and I taken a few years ago. I am also very active with HF mobile, mostly on 40M. (W4AUV/m)
am also active on 75 meter AM with restored vintage equipment. Come join us in the AM window: [3880-3885-3890]. Pictured above is my AM station: The Apache TX1and matching Mohawk RX1 receiver. You can also hear me with the Apache on 40 and 80 CW with my Vibroplex bug!
I do not do the QSL card thing. Sorry.
LIFE IS TOO SHORT FOR QRP!!!
Here is the"Vertical Half Square" antenna! It is up about 80 feet. SIMPLE TO BUILD, CHEAP, HIGHLY EFFECTIVE!
There also is a Bazooka dipole for 40 meters up 50 feet underneath the vertical half square

I took my Extra Class exam in 1978 at the FCC office in Chicago. Below is a scan of the "old school" cerfificate issued by the FCC.
