Ham Member Lookups: 20065



Hi to all,

I'm a disabled ham who operates completely Qrp at only 5 WATTS or less using a home-brewed 12 volt PMA wind generator to power my MADE IN AMERICA FANTASTIC PERFORMING Elecraft KX-3 station..

I really enjoy chasing dx late at night on 20 and 40 meters. I have a 20 meter SSB sked on the weekends with a dear old friend ZS1RJQ. Mike is family to me and we go back many,many years now. Mike and I are both cancer survivors. I would have never met him if it hadn't been through ham radio. As of late Peter -ZS1PZ joins Mike and me on these 20 meter skeds. Peter is a nice guy and real good operator. Just about every night on 40 meter LSB I talk with my good friends Joan,Georges,Fedy, and Nick. EA3BOX -Joan is my neighbor in beautiful Catalonia( INDEPENDENCE FOR CATALONIA NOW!) F4BEW- Georges in wonderful Southern France. Fedy-LZ2ZF and Nick-LZ1JY are constantly the strongest signals I've ever heard from Bulgaria. Also when conditions are favorable I try to check into ON7TQ's 40 meter European Group that's  usually on around 7.160Mhz + - a few Khz. Roger's a great guy and he runs a outstanding 40 meter group from Belgium. I really enjoy talking to my friends-Roger and 2W0VOW(also C91B)-dear Beth from Wales on this superb net.

Nightly stateside 40 meter contacts include my good friends G1VGT/W0, W9SJB/7,W0YY, KB8OTM.just to name a few.

Afternoons you can find me talking to my friends/Brothers on the 14240 Group .Thus far, I'm the only Qrp operator in this unique group. Everyone including K1QS,AA2WC,K4MPI,W9RG, W0RIC,K0IYA,9Y4D,9K2MU and the rest of the gang are "old school" hams. Truly ALL are outstanding operators and gifted orators. I am real proud to belong to this wonderful brotherhood of the 14240 Group.A GREAT BUNCH OF DECENT HAMS!

I'm also a member of QRP ARCI - my number is #4761.This fantastic organization is for Qrp hams all over the planet and reflective of everything that is truly Qrp.

Qrp is a REAL BLAST. I totally enjoy the challenges that each contact presents to me.

So far, as of 12 November 2014---on HF I have 322 countries worked with 321 confirmed via Qrp at 5 watts or less. On the Magic Band-6 meters I have 137 countries.

I build ALL of my antennas with the help of my son.On HF I have used multi-element vertical arrays, extremely long vee beams , mono-band Delta loops, and Log periodics. I've also tried and used Bruce Arrays, Sterba Curtains and Rhombics with good results . I change my HF antennas frequently because I really enjoy experimenting in trying to get more gain so you folks can hear my 5 watt Qrp Green station better. Please keep checking back here to see what antennas I am building.

*****Currently, I'm using a 200 METER PER SIDE Vee Beam- apex  up at 13 meters sloping to 10 and 12 meters and radiates bi-directionally to South Africa and the North West..... This 600 feet per side Vee Beam is used on 6 thru 20 meters. I  have another Vee Beam facing West that's 100 METERS PER SIDE- apex up at 10 meters sloping to 5 meters on its ends. Also a 4 Element  Bruce Array on 40 meters. Photos available to anyone who sends me an email request.******


Antennas, antennas, antennas.....I'm quite serious about building high gain antennas THAT WORK WELL!!

Direct QSL's to my PO Box 36 if you want my card. I DO QSL 100% WHEN I RECEIVE YOUR CARD.

My best regards and many 72/73.
