Welcome to my call page! I have been licensed since 12/27/88. My Uncle WB0NMW (SK) was my inspiration for first getting into ham radio. My first call was KC4ICK and shortly after that it was upgraded to N4UZH. In 1990 I earned my Extra class call sign (back in the 20 wpm days!!) and my call sign became WN9M. In ~Oct. 2009 I changed call signs to reflect living in Georgia/South Carolina, and now my call is WI4T. I really do not plan on changing call signs again.
I recently moved to my farm in Lamar Missouri so I am in the process of getting my shack back together. I use an Elecraft K3 as my primary radio with a P3, KAT500 tuner and a KPA500 Amp. . I also have a 8.191 mzh I.F. tap going to a Softrock rx/tx which is being fed into the computer with a Delta 44 sound card. I usually run Skimmer with a 20K bandwith. My antenna is a 6 band Hexbeam. The antenna works great!
I have built a 10'x20' shack with a porch overlooking my fields in the pasture below the shack. I am planning to get 2 towers up, a 100' Rohn 25G for my 2 meter, possibley a tv antenna, phone antenna (cell recepiton at the farm is terrible), Internet antenna - again there is no cable, fiber of DSL internet at the farm, we are fairly remote. I am using satelite internet right now but I am hoping that by getting up 100 foot that I can reach a internet transfer station about 20 miles away. My second tower needs to be a crank-up, tilt over tower. I will be putting a Cubex MK-IV 30' extend boom cubical quad. This antenna is a monster but works great. My concern is the ice storms in the winter. I want to be able to bring it down when I want to and I want to be able to tilt it to the ground to work on it when necessary.
If you know where I can get a good crank-up tower in the 50' to 79' size let me know :) Thank you for looking at my site and I look forward to talking with you on the bands.
I am an active LoTW member and as of the writing of this bio I have achieved the Tripple Play award and am working on 249 DXCC Confirmed LOTW as well as 4-band WAS.
Greg - WI4T
