I was first lisenced in 1967 as WN7HBH in Phoenix, Az. After passing my General Class in 1968 I became WA7KLK. I held that call for 28 years. In November of 1996 I was fortunate enough to make a change and was issued W7USA. I believe it was the call of a MARS station in Ft. Lewis, Wash. prior to it becoming available.
My station consists of state of the art like TS450S , IC746, IC706MKIIG and others to Collins S-line to Korean and WWII vintage gear. I can operate 160m thru 6m all mode and can Ibe found on SSB, CW or RTTY. The antenna farm has changed over the years and will continue to do so. Currently I use wire antennas on 160m, 80m, 40m and 30m, an old KLM 2 el yagi on 40m that needs some repair, a home brew 5 el yagi on 20m, a home brew 3el yagi on 12m, a home brew 8 el yagi on 10m and a home brew 6 el yagi on 6m.
I enjoy ragchewing, contesting and chasing DX. I hope to see you down the log page.73, Ray / W7USA
