Greetings from Georgia. I go by my middle name - Mike - despite the call being my "initials".

Licensed in 1968 while in high school as WN5UOB, my Dad - then WN5UOC, and I began a great hobby together. I've also held WA5UOB (until Feb 1978), N5FL (Feb 1978-Nov 1996) and K7JR (Nov 1996-Mar 2002). My Dad is K5JR.

I operated as K4I / Rover in the 2011 Georgia QSO Party.

I operated as K4R / Rover in the 2012 Georgia QSO Party, part of K4 - N-F-A-R-L , http://nfarl.org/GA_QSO_Party/GA_QSO_SpecialCallSigns.html

I operated as N4N / Rover in the 2013 GQP.

Originally from Texas (DFW area), my wife and I have been here in GA for just over 10 years.

Most of my HF operation is CW, concentrating on 160m CW contests. I do show up in other CW contests throughout the year. My antennas consist of "wires in the woods" owing the focus to 160, 80 & 40. My daily mobile operation consists primarily of FM operation on 10m, 6m, 2m, 222, 440 and 927, mostly Motorola gear. I do have a classic Kenwood TM-742 as well as an Icom 7000 to round out the mobile setup. I use a Hi-Q 5-80RM for HF mobile.

I'm the care taker of North Fulton Amateur Radio League's seven repeaters. http//www.nfarl.org . Come visit on any of our repeaters anytime you are in the Atlanta area - NF4GA.

Below are a couple of pics of the Old Shack - the "Modern" quasi-SO2R contesing position and the "Vintage" DX chasing position. I've recently added a vintage Signal/One CX-7B and will put up a pic of it.  And even more recently acquired a SignalOne MS-1030.


We are in the process of building a new house and all has been dismanteled awaiting the new shack over a detached garage.  More pics when that happens!

 

Icom IC-756ProII as "Run" & 30 yr old IC-735 as "Multiplier" - The WinKeyer USB switches between radios via N1MM logger.

Motorola Spectras for 900, 440 & 2m & a CDM1550 for 224 & MTS2000 portable on 900 (yes, with a 16 button Pipo pad!!)

Power by Alpha!!

 

 

Heathkit SB-303 (solid state) receiver and SB-401 (tube) transmitter - No click and work here!! Real radios that require TUNE UP.

Brown Bros dual key is from my Dad's and my Novice days. Keyer is Super CMOS III from kit in 90's QST article.

 

Here is pic of the current "chariot" hosting my mobile platform.  I operate 80-10 from an IC-7000 and a Hi-Q 580RT, 10m & 6m FM from a Motorola Syntor X9000, 2m / 220 / 440 from a "vintage" Kenwood TM-742, 440 FM from a Motorola Spectra with A7 head and 900 with a Motorola  MCS2000.  A total of 7 antenna mounts - 3 drilled in the roof, 3 at the corners of the cabin box (plus the 3m radio on front right) and the HF mount.  I've used a "bug catcher" style HF antennas all 45 years of my mobile operation.  I really like the way this Hi-Q works.  My results have been outstanding.  I use the BetterRF Tune Control 7000 to adjust the antenna while underway (the BetterRF company is now QRT).
