I have been licensed since 1976, and enjoy most facets of Ham Radio, but enjoy DXing and Rag Chewing the most. I am Retired from the US Army, and the State of Tennessee.

During my time in the Army, I was stationed in France, Germany 2 times, Vietnam, and Korea 4 times. I visited many other countries while in the Army, and several other after Retiring.

While in Korea for the 4th time, I was HL9JV and was assigned at Uijongbu, about 15 miles north of Seoul. I decided to make a wire beam and ended up with between 3 and 6 element beams for 40 through 10 meters. I was instructed that my radio equipment must be secured when I was not using it, so I mounted a wall locker on its side, to the top of my desk, then installed everything inside of it.

I retired in 1998 so I could travel, and enjoy my hobbies. Besides Ham Radio, I enjoy tinkering with cars. This is my Weekend Play Car with 825 HP (click for full details & photos)
Below are recent photos.
I have became active again in RTTY after many years absence. I first got started in rtty in 1981 while in Korea. I used a old Army TT4 unit that I borrowed from a Jeep, and a demodulator I built from a kit. The TT4 turned out to be way too loud for me to use in my quarters, so I picked up a Robot 800 and 400, which was very high tech back then.
Fast forward over 30 years, I am having a lot of fun using one of the many sound card programs, and a Rigblaster Nomic unit. I checked around and everyone told me that the rtty program MMTTY was one of the best available, and it is free. After trying it, I decided I want to use it, along with DXTelnet and DXWin logging program. I have been using these 2 programs together DXing since the 1990s, and they make a perfect combination. I checked, and the newer versions of DXWIN has MMTTY built in, so I upgraded to version 8.05 and it is a perfect combination.
See you in the pile up. :)
