October 2014 Mini-dxpedition to UK.

Biography

Originally licensed in 1961/2 as KN1YCJ (Novice). Later K1YCJ (General). Still later relocated to NJ as W2HJJ.

QRT 1966 to 2012. Re-licensed as KD2BNA. Selected vanity call for short CW.

Base station is Tentec Omni VII with rotatable dipole for 20m, 15m, and 10m. 4 element 6m yagi stacked on top of dipole. Wire OCF dipole for 80m to 10m.

Home key is a Vizkey Camelback. Smooth and forgiving. For portable operations I use an old J-38 with a homebrew leg strap.

Portable station is Elecraft KX3. Portable antennas (so far) are a PAR Trail Friendly, a Buddipole and an Alexloop.

Active in SKCC. Really learning a lot from the great ops there. SKCC #9434S
