Ham Member Lookups: 13355

 

My wife Sandra,AA4L, and grandson Chase.  Married 44 years, she supports my Ham hobby.

Received my ham ticket in March 1989. Loved DX from the start. My Uncle,WA4WXA, encouraged me to get the extra class ticket to better chase DX. I enjoy building wire antennas and have built many thru the years for HF. I built a double bazooka once for 440 and it worked great, fit in your shirt pocket. I enjoy attending hamfests and meeting other hams. Joined the Honor Roll August of 1994. My rigs are the Elecraft K-3, Yaesu 1000MP MK 5 Field, TS-2000, and TS-830S. My antenna's: 10-80m super loop, 80m dipole at 65',and a 160m Carolina windom at 45'. I have a 110' tower with a 4 element steppIR beam for 6 thru 20M, and a 40m 2 element beam. I credit my DX skills to KB4I,SK, who showed me how to DX and get them. Other encouraging hams are W4QO,K4MJ,AB4LX,N4PMG. My favorite contact was Kerguelen Island DXpedition. I worked them on a rain gutter in a restricted sub-division.  Proud new member of the CWOPS club.

I enlisted in the Army in 1963, went to Hercules Missile School at Ft. Belvoir, VA. for training.  Then I shipped out to Bamberg, Germany to a Hawk missile Battery, 3rd Msl, 7th Arty, for the remaining 3 years of my tour.  Bought a VW bug and travelled all over Western Europe with my leave of 30 days a year.  What an experience.
