QSL image for W6LG

I was first licensed as WN6JZC in 1963. In 1964 I upgraded to general class and received WB6JZC. I kept that callsign until the 1970's when I was issued KB6SX as an Advanced Class licensee. I kept KB6SX for about 30 years. In the 1980's I passed the 20 WPM CW test and earned an Extra Class License. In 2004 I applied for and got W6LG as a vanity callsign. I figured I had been licensed for over 40 years and it was time for a two letter callsign.

I have been very active for over 51 years. Most of that time has been spent on 20 . I am a Life Member of the ARRL. I am also a life member of QCWA. I enjoy chasing DX.

I am the President of Heath Tech Inc. here in California. We currently have 2 popular websites: www.hamcq.com and  www.newhamstore.com.

 

At home I have two of the Elecraft K3 transceivers, the P3 panadapter, KPA500 amplifer and KAT500 anenna tuner. I enjoy the K3's because I can taylor them to meet my needs. I have Drake L-4B's amplifiers that I restored in recent years. I installed Peter Dahl Transformers, bias, new relays, caps, diodes...abunch of parts. The amps look like new and run an easy 1200 watts from the 30 year old tubes. The Drake restoration projects were very rewarding and a nice break from work. Over the years I did build many amplifiers.

I have three towers with two monoband yagis for 20 meters. There is one yagi for15 andone for 10 meters. I also have several wire antennas and homemade verticals.

I am the trustee of W6UP; the High Sierra Amateur Radio Club in Grass Valley, CA. The original W6UP was a neighbor of mine in Burbank where I grew up. I thought it was a neat callsign so we got it for the club.

On January 14,1998, I fell about 14 feet backwards from a roof while working as a self employeed appraiser and inspector.I landed on my head and right shoulder. I broke my neck at C-6 and most of my ribs. At that time I was doing inspections of residential construction and appraisals. I would occassionally testify in court about construction defects that were part of lawsuits. Needless to say, all of that did come to a crashing halt. With the help of my family and friends, I have recovered better than most. I am very grateful for the help that I did receive.

I've enjoyed ham radio for more than 51 years. It has really been wonderful to be able to build a business with the help of so many at www.hamcq.com.

73, Jim Heath W6LG Licensed Since 1963
