Although used VHF/UHF mostly in the past, I enjoy hearing the foreign accents on HF by those kind enough and talented enough to use English.  Hope to re-learn Spannish and learn enough Finnish to at least say a few phrases in the future.  For now thanks Q signals.

Now "semi" retired from over-the-road trucking and hope to catch up on HF cards to go to bureau for those sent.  Caught up on stateside VHF/UHF cards found, so please resend if need VHF/UHF QSL.  Trucking was job #24, previous jobs mostly manufacturing, engineering and quality; anything from floor-sweeper to management.  If need stateside LOTW confirmation send email w/call & date.  I'm usually within a week on DX LOTW.

US Army 68-70: Hunter-Liggett Military Res., CA, Weather Observer, "Met" team (Signal Corp) & Ft. Monmouth, NJ (Electronics Command) at the "Hex" research center, electronic instrument repair & calibration.

160m:Inverted L w/2 counterpoises.

80m: One or two inverted Ls. Sometimes switch 3 eperate counterposes to add direction & gain. 800w w/ MLA-2500.

40m: Single wire vertical or 2 phased wire verticals.  MLA-2500.

HF: Using 160/80m inverted L for 30-10. Also various wire verticals.  Possible beam if get better tower. MLA-2500. FT-950.

6 m: 3 el @ 18' (5m) duct tapped to deck. Converted MLA-2500B to six by unhooking a tap at bandswitch and leaving switch there and adding 6m tap to coil going straight to tuning cap.  Also took a couple turns off plate supressors but don't think that is necessary.  It was that simple! FT-950.

2 m: Good to hear some of the old calls again. Was WA8MIL.  In EN74ic now, in EN63 or EN73 in past.  My HAAT to the east is about 355'(108m) @ 1500'(457m) ASL.  About 30 mile(48km) horizon to East. Big hill and tower to northwest, however.  Temporarily one 17b2 & 1.5 KW.  42 states terrestrial SSB/CW (not easy from mid-MI).  Enjoy ssb 2 meter MS.  Alot more exciting to hear voice come through than have a computer tell you you've made a contact.  No, don't write, I'll try digital later so I will have more stations to run with and should be easier.  Frustrating 'cause 600-1100 mi ssb ms contacts are "duck soup" during a good shower.

222: Using AR-247 & Scanner ant, 30w, best FM DX W4ZRZ @ 719 miles.  Now operate SSB/cw with an FT-736R, 100w, and Directive Systems KIFO yagi @ 33' height.

432: Single 9wl @ 39' (13m) up & 100w on 432 w/31 states.  Using IC-910H.

1296: 10W, Loop Yagi, more pwr to come. IC-910H. Hope to have 18' dish previously used by W2UHI (SK) & K8EB on moon in spring 2015.

903: SHF xvrtr w/10w & preamp previously used by KF8QL & K8DOG.  Looper at 43' up.

Other: Have parts being assembled for 2.3, 3.5 &10 ghz white box, etc..

Note: operation is from EN74ic, Osceola County,west of Ina, near Dighton & Tustin MI, about 11.5 miles (18.5km) SE of Cadillac (1 1/2 miles SE of 9and10 TV tower).

K8BHZ, Brian, is my brother.  Look for his 160m receiving ant "Stonehex" in OH4UN's Low Band DX'ing 4th edition or his vintage receiver in January 2009 QST and vintage Xmtr in April 2010 QST.

"See" you on the air,

Stan
