I got my license in August 1953 at age 14. I have been a dx'er all my years on as a ham.
Also chase yl's on the air. Now have DXCC-YL, WAC-YL, YLCC and WAS-YL.
My equipment on hf is a IC 756 PRO 2, and Alpha 89. Antennas are 5 el on 15, 4 el on 20. WARC band 12, 17 and 30 is a Mosley 3el TA-33 XL. 10 and 40 are dipoles. 80 and160 are inverted v's.
I have 2 TS-2000 stations. First TS-2000 drives a Henry Tempo 6N2 for a kilowatt on 2 and 6 and a RF Concepts brick amp for 100 watts on 70 cm. Beams are M2 38 el on 70 cm, 17B2 on 2 meters and 6 el HyGain on 6 meters. The second TS2000 drives another Henry Tempo 6N2 to a M2 7 el 6 meter beam and a 10 el Cushcraft on 2.
I use LOTW. If your call has not shown up in LOTW plesae send me an e-mail. For a stateside qsl please send a sase. Dx stations sae and $1.00. No irc's please. Local post office does not know what to do with them. Cards returned 99.9% in next days mail.
I do not use e-qsl and do not have enough turnover to use the bureau.
