Originally from Michigan, I became interested in amateur radio, along with my father, (now a SK). I received my Novice license in 1960 - KN8TCP; I upgraded to General in 1961 and was issued K8TCP. I was issued W9KXI shortly after I moved to Indiana in the late 1960's. To avoid confusion on VHF SSB (after I moved to New York in 1979), I opted to give up my W9KXI call (a decision I later regretted)  and was issued N2BKS. In June 1996, I applied for (and received) my old W9KXI call, which I plan to keep.

From the late 1970's to early 2007, I was active, almost exclusively, on 2M SSB and was not active at all on HF. After retiring in 2007 this has changed  besides operating VHF and UHF SSB, I now enjoy operating HF and working the VHF contests (see www.KA2LIM.com ).  I also enjoy meeting and talking with many, many great people.

The W9KXI Station

HF + 50 MHz

Yaesu FTDX5000MP with a Heil PR-781 microphone. LP-Pan 2 Panadapter. Kenwood SM-220 monitor.

On HF: Ameritron AL-82, MFJ-998, Butternut HF9-V, a 60M Inverted Vee and a Mosley CL33MWARC.

On 6 Meters: a 3 element yagi

 

 

144, 222, 432 & 1296 MHz.

Yaesu FT-847 with a Heil microphone that has the HC-4 element:

   - 2 Meters: Lunar-Link LA-22 amplifier; homebrew 15 element Quagi (by KA2LIM) at 40 feet; mast mounted MHP-145 preamplifier and ARR preamp.

   - 1.25 Meters: DEMI Transverter; TE Systems 2252G amplifier; 15 element yagi, (homebrewed by KA2LIM, from a donor TV "boom") and one ARR preamp.

   - 70cm: Lunar-Link LA-72 amplifier; two ARR preamps, Directive Systems DSEFO432-25 at 30 feet.

   - 23cm: 1 watt and a Directive Systems DSE2325LY Loop Yagi at 35 feet.  Plans for the future is to bring power output to 60 or 70 watts.  So, we are still:

 

 

ARRL                  OOTC #4465
