Ham Member Lookups: 9171

Photo: 3 el. Mini Beam with 2m/70cm vertical on top                     160m-30m Vertical

 

I have been a ham since 1965 and at that time being 13 years old, was one of the youngest around. Now I am 61 years old. I operate predominantly on CW which I enjoy the most.

I am also proud to say I obtained my Extra Class license in 2006 and considering not coming from a technical or electronic background, that was a very important accomplishment for me.

Equipment run down:

Current station: Yaseu FT-950 and Heathkit SB220 500W output 80-10m. 160m operating barefoot only 100W output

Vintage station: Drake T4X, R4A, Hallicrafters TO Keyer. I ran the Drake Line exclusively up to July 2010. Also have a DX-60 and Globe VFO which was my first rig from 1965

VHF station: Yaseu FT-90R

Antennas:

160-30m: MFJ -2990 43 foot vertical, ground mounted with 2,500 Ft. of radials. A homebrew remote controlled matching unit is at the antenna base to improve loading on 160m and 80m, thanks to WY2U.

20-6m: TGM MQ-36SR 3 el. Mini Beam up 25 feet on the house roof (photo shown above). Tuned with the MFJ 989D match box

2m/70cm: Diamond X-200A vertical mounted on top of the beam

Since my antenna system is not the best on160m, I very much appreciate any DX contacts and good signal reports that come in. Thank you to those stations that 'strain their ears a bit' to pull me in.
