Thanks for visiting my QRZ page. I go by "Mac" and not "Lionel". I log all contacts on QRZ and LOTW and would appreciate your confirming our QSO. I was issued my novice license, KA8BXM in 1978.
The primary operating station located in my loft consists of an Icom IC-7600, LDG AT-600ProII autotuner and Ameritron ALS-600 amplifier and TenTec Jupiter for CW. I also have a secondary station downstairs, a Yaesu FT-897D with LDG AT-897 tuner.
HF antennas are a 3 element mono-band beam for 17 meters (homebrew with 20' 6" boom), 160 meter full wave loop fed with 450 ohm ladder line and common fed resonant 75 meter dipole and 40 meter inverted V.
I operate the IC-7600 as a remote base in the General license phone portion on 75 & 40 meters using the dipole and inverted v antennas.
