Welcome to my QTH in beautiful East Central Florida!!!

First licensed on February 9, 1971 (WN2TAW); became WN4OMM in 1975, WB4OMM in 1976.

THE SHACK ("DOG HOUSE")                     OPERATING POSITION                    QRP CW - GETTYSBURG NATL PARK

My station: Yaesu FT-2000 Transceiver and FL-7000 Solid State 600W Amplifier - totally computer integrated. I use LOGic logging program (with MixW Software and JT65 for digital modes, N1MM and N3FJP for contests) and it controls everything from logging, looking up QSL data, and adding the QSO information from the rig (it's defaulted to the QRZ.COM lookup - when we QSO I can see you too!). The FL-7000 amp is interfaced to the rig and I can run 500W out to the antenna system with the flip of a switch. I also have a dedicated 2M/440 FM75W Kenwood V71 ad an ICOM IC-80H D-STAR to an AR-270 @45 feet. I'm in my "dog house" (ham shack) - a 10x14 exterior building fully insulated and finished with 100A AC electric service, A/C (yeah, it gets hot in Florida!), Cable HDTV, Hi-speed Internet, fully equipped workbench, and more.

Anntenas: 40M/80M wire loop at 35'; A3S 3EL 10/15/20/30 beam at 38';4 EL 6M beam at 40'; 2m/440 vertical at 45'; and 160M wire sloper on a 40' crank-up Aluma Tower. All coax is LMR-400.

I work all bands/modes, from 160M to 2M, SSB, CW, Digital (PSK31, RTTY, JT65, and SSTV), D-STAR, AM, FM, and I QSL 100% via LoTW, eQSL, Bureau, and of course direct cheeky !!!! I work most of the major contests throughout the year if I can. I upload my logs usually the same day. I mail hard cards weekly (usually Monday morning via snail mail). I also do QRP CW in public parks, national forests, pavillions, fields, picnic tables, or wherever else I can get active in the field. I am a "rabid" contester, love CW and QRP! I have a Elecraft KX-3 that just loves the outdoors!
