My home: an old Victorian house with character built about 1900.

 

 

 

The stairway is beautiful. It has over fifty feet of stair rail and the spindles and railing are either mahogony or walnut I haven't figured out which yet. The plan is to strip the railing and then clear coat over it with polyurethene and leave the spindles white. Note the chair rail around the walls and up the stairway.

 

 

Hello from the rolling hills of northeast Kentucky. I am located in Bracken County Kentucky. This county has a low poplulation of amateur radio operators. If you need Bracken County just give me a call on the air or email and set up a schedule. My station is set up inside a walk in closet. The shack is six and a half feet in length and thirty two inches wide. In the image you can see the radio side of the closet. I have a work table and shelves on the other side and I sit in the middle. My equipment is a FT-950 on hf with an AL-80b to a homebrew 75 meter off center fed dipole at 18 feet. For vhf/uhf I have a Yaesu FT-847. With this modest setup I have worked 232 countries in the last three years. I have 202 confirmed on LOTW and several with cards. My DXCC certificate arrived on Oct. 9, 2013. I also have 20 meter DXCC completed along with 100 plus countries worked on 40, 17, 15, 12, and 10 meters. All low antennas are not NVIS as this one has shown. Many of those countries are on 40 and 75 meters. In October 2013 I added an AL-80B. I currently operate SSB, PSK31, PSK63, PSK125, and RTTY. I have DXCC mixed and 20 meters. I am a former assistant section manager and currently serve as Emergency Coordinator for Bracken County. I was nominated for ARRL Instructor of the year. I have been licensed since 1975.

I also teach a for credit high school class in amateur radio at Dixie Heights High School in Northern Kentucky. Over the past five years we have licensed 190 high school students and three adults. I have one more session scheduled this school year with about thirty students. The course is called Radio Technology and is a one half credit physical science elective. The club callsign for Dixie Heights High School is KY4DH. I have proven that you can get young people interested in amateur radio!(See February 2009 QST for an article on the class. Note: As of the end of the current school year I will be retiring from teaching after 45 years. Sadly the school has decided to do away with the Radio Technology Course when I retire. All good things must end and so must this. At least I have made a significant contribution to amateur radio.

If you hear us on the air give us a shout. Until then 73.

Catch you on the bands.

Jim

QSL via direct, LOTW, or eqsl. I no longer use the bureau.

 

My buddy Chopper who shares my shack.

Chopper enjoys a good QSO as much as the next guy. He also enjoys hamming it up for the camera!
