Ham Member Lookups: 8524

   

I was first licensed as a Novice in 1972 at the age of 11 (WN5KSD), and upgraded to General two years later (WB5KSD). After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin in 1984 with an Engineering degree, I upgraded to Advanced and then Extra in 1989. I primarily operate the digital modes these days, CW, RTTY, PSK31, and lately JT65.

The antenna farm consists of a 20/15/10m dipole (driven element from and old beam) up 50ft on a Rohn 25 tower and broadside east/west with dipoles for 30 and 40m on the same feed. There is also a 160m loop up 40ft with the tower serving as the 4th leg. These antennas, along with a 17m dipole, connect to a remote coax switch about 150ft from the shack.

My father, who got me started in ham radio all these many years ago is W5ZIT. My mother is WA5MYX and my wife is N5OTA. Still working on my 3 sons and I hope that one of these days they will become interested in this great activity.

73 and see you on the bands…
