I was first licensed as WN9KGQ in 1964, with my station located in Stevens Point, WI. I became WA9KGQ in 1965
I moved to Madison WI in 1967 to attend college, and remained there until 1983. I then moved to Milwaukee WI and in 1989 became WF9X.
In 1998 I changed my call to W9GA using the vanity call process. This call had previously been held by famous Milwaukee amateur Erv Weinman.
My current QTH is located on a nice hilltop just northwest of Milwaukee in Colgate WI. (Germantown) where I and my wife Steffi Live. I am located on 1.5 acres, and have 50-1296 MHz antennas on a 10 foot mast into an 8 foot Glen Martin quad tower on the roof. (CCI covenants unfortunately) On HF I run a Hy Gain trap vertical on 10-40M
My greatest effort is on 50 MHz, with a pair of 5 element vertical M2 antennas on the roof, and capable of elevation for EME contacts. This antenna works well on Es and F2, but not so well on tropo and scatter, where the cross polarity affects signal strength. My current standings as of early 2015 are 138 DXCC worked and 421 grids worked for FFMA (continental US)
I solicit QSLs for new grids and countries,and do plan to install LoTW once I get my QSOs in an electronic database. If you need a confirmation from my log,please send a SASE with your card. Foreign stations please an SAE, I will cover the postage.
Thanks and 73, I hope to QSO you sometime:
