HF6V purchased at 1981 Charlotte (NC) Hamvention, resurrected and upgraded to HV9V (Spring 2013).

Radials buried (Feb. 28, 2015) while YL is out of town. Need grass to grow FAST!

One month later (the perfect crime; almost)

The radials seem work much better under the soil, hi; Dropped SWR to almost nil on all bands except 20 and 17 meters which are now @  2:1 (tuned for cw portions of bands).


Icom IC-718 and AT-180 Antenna Tuner

W7GF and Relief Op. "Baja Josie" July 4th, 2013

 I recieved my novice license at age 14 in Boca Raton, Florida (1975) as WN4NSX and WA4NSX. General Class license in 1976; Round Rock, Texas as WB5XPD (FCC Goof), as X suffixe callsigns were not issued; so was reissued as WB5YMS - which I held until 2007. Operated as WB5YMS/4 in Charlotte, NC and Liberty Hill, SC from 1979 - 1984; Qualified for 30 wpm in the McElroy memorial cw competition on Oct. 10 1981 at the Ashville, NC Autumnfest. Originally from upstate NY, born in Hamilton; I was fortunate to know Howard Bradley, W2QHH when I was very young. Many memories of being in his shack, observing him change from trasmit to recieve on his long wire antenna using only an alligator clip and a nail in the wall! Also recall his scolding's about trampling his exotic plants while playing in his backyard garden. We had many QSO's over the years, discussing DX chasing after the weekly FOC roundtable net every Sunday morning on 14.050. Was also fortunte enough to know Howie's friend Gus Browning, W4BPD.  I had the pleasure visiting his home print shop in Cordova, SC many times; hearing stories of his great DXpedition adventures. Inactive between 1985 - 2007, then obtained vanity callsign W7YMS in Eugene, Oregon until getting my Extra Class license in 2012; and obtained present callsign of W7GF. Father is N4UO in North Carolina and Uncle is WA4ORC in Florida.

All old logs were lost, but found listing for this 1976  "vintage QSL" being sold on Ebay!

QSO's from 2007 > can be confirmed on LOTW, E-QSL and Club Log.
