Everyone calls me JAY. Won't bore you with that story!

The picture here is of downtown Indianapolis, Indiana from the top of the 37.5 meter tower at my QTH. Downtown is about 20 miles away to my Southwest.

I've had a fascination with radio since I was 10 years old, listened to broadcast and ham stations on a borrowed receiver. Don't remember what it was, as the case was missing. Was first liscensed in 1972 as WN9LTY. My next door neighbor Dan, WB9FGO, now KB9AX, was my Elmer. Our antennas were 5 meters apart! Was very active DXing and contesting until the early 80's. Then real life took over. Two kids, a new business, 3 house moves, 2 college educations to pay for, and I found myself QRT for 25 years. All that is behind me now and it is time to get back to fun. Bought an Icom 7700 in March of 2010. Put up 37 meter tower with a TH7DX. Just finished the installation on Thanksgiving weekend 2010. Added an Alpha 89 in August, 2012. Have plans for more antennas to cover the other bands as time allows. Starting to build the shack..

I have recently added two more tribanders to the existing tower. An A3S at 24 meters, fixed West, and CL33 at 14 meters fixed SE. In an attempt to operate the other bands not covered by the tribanders, I am loading the south set of guy wires on the tower through a 4 to 1 balun against ground. It is not an optimum setup but it does allow me to get on all the other bands with a relatively low SWR on some bands and reasonable signal!

After 38 years of the same call, WB9LTY, received W9TC on December 31,2010. It's going to take a while to get used to it.

Hope to see you on the bands!

Jay W9TC
