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 HFand working the VHF contests (see www.KA2LIM.com ). I also enjoy meeting and talking with many, many great people.

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.

Look for us during the VHF/UHF contests, we aren't hard to find.
