Retired Eletrical Engineer. Married to Charlotte who became my wife in 1958. We live on our 57 acre Skymoon cattle ranch here in Titus county, Texas. We have three grown children nine grand children., and one great grandson.

My Ham Radio interests include HF Low Band DXing, 6 meter DXing, and 2 meter EME.

Current Antennas are:

160 meters: 4-square 1/4wl vertical array with elevated radials.

80 meters: 4-square 1/4wl vertical array with elevated radials (also used for 60 meters).

40 meters: 4 element Yagi on 100 feet high tower.

30,20,17,15,12,10 meters: 6-band 2 element Quad 75 on feet high tower.

6 meters: 7 element Yagi, 115 feet high.

2 meters: 32-17 horizontal element Yagi's, and 32-11 vertical element Yagi's which make up the 'Mighty Big Antenna'.

Other antennas: Three bidirectional Beverage antennas (850 feet long) for receiving on the low bands.

Holder of 160 meter and 2 meter WAZ (all 40 zones), #1 DXCC Honor Roll, 2 meters DXCC #1, 6 meter DXCC #673, 5BDXCC #87,  first DXCC (#2271) earned in 1955.

Over 11,000 QSO's made via 2 meter EME. I Love CW, but I also embrace the newer digital mode of JT65 for EME weak signal work, and will use whichever is needed to make the QSO.

Life member of ARRL.

Semi retired from contesting now, but still compete on occasion.

ARRL Sweepstakes National Championships in 1961 and 1962 as W5WZQ (with fond memories of my departed friends, mentors, & heros; W9IOP and W4KFC)
