I have been a Amateur Radio Operator since I was 16 years old. First Licensed as WN2GLI in Edison, NJ in 1963 and then upgraded to Tech and then General, WB2GLI. Upgraded to Advanced in 1968, just prior to my trip to SE ASIA with the USAF. We moved to Fort Lauderdale,FL in 1975 and received the call sign WA4ETN. In 1981 we moved to Georgia and upgraded to EXTRA in1982. I changed my call to W4ETN in February 1999. I am a VE with ARRL, W5YI & CAVEC. I love to DX and have 351 countries worked and confirmed with 341 confirmed on the active countries list for #1 Honor Roll. The Station in the photo is an FT-1000 and AL-82 AMP. There is also a PK-232MBX used for the digital modes with the Lap Top PC. My HF antenna's are the PRO-57B on a 55 foot crank up tilt over tower and slopers for 160,80 and 40 meters. My VHF/UHF antenna is a Comet GP-6 dual Bander 146/446 MHz which was used to make 3 contacts with the International Space Station. I also run HF moble with a IC-706MKIIG and Ham Stick antenna's. On June 18th, 2005 a 3 element 6 meter beam and an IC-706MKIIG station was added for 6 meters. Today 3/25/12, I removed the 6 meter 3 element beam and replaced it with a 5 element YU7EF beam.(see photo of 6 meter over the Mosley PRO-57B) In May 2011,I converted an old SB201 for 6 meters (see attached Photo) Now have 600 watts output! Hope to see you there! Awards shown are: ARRL DXCC - #1 DXCC Honor Roll -WAS Top Band Phone & WAZ.
