We now have a club station for WWL 870AM, W5WWL. Our Trustee is Joe Pollet, W5ABC our chief engineer. Dominic Mitchum one of our other engineers, W5DGM is our VP, and I'm the President. .
I was first licensed in 1963 as WN5IDB, and held the calls of WA5LTF, and WB5GGX. My son, Jay, who lives in Middle River, Maryland just got his license and requested his OM's old call. He is now WB5GGX!!!
My rig consists of the Icom 7600 and just added the FT-991, Alpha 9500 amplifier, a Palstar Auto tuner, an A3S 3 Element Yagi up at 43 Feet with the 40 Meter Add on kit. I also use a Shorty Bazooka on 80 meters, and a 6 element Cushcraft A50-6S on 6 meters at 50 Feet, and a UHF/VHF beam. I have a Hazer on the tower so I can raise and lower the system if bad weather threatens. And believe me that happens a lot in Southern Louisiana.
Got active again in July of 2010, and in May 2012 got my DXCC Mixed, and just qualified for my CW and Phone DXCC. I also enjoy checking into the CCN Nets on 40 and 75 meters. So far I have earned the 100 point and 500 point award for each of the bands on SSB. I think I'll go and get the CW one now. HI!!!
My QTH is 30 miles North of New Orleans, and I commute each day into the city across the longest over the water bridge in the world. The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway is 24 miles over water. I guess I need a mobile HF to enjoy some early morning DX and late evening rag chewing.
I'm almost finished with a complete ham shack remodel, and if I do say so myself it is coming together exceptionally well. Lots of thought went into it, and lots of rewiring and design work. I'll post pics as soon as I am finished which should be by September 28, 2015.
Looking forward to getting back up and on the air. Give me a call when you hear me.
