I will be operating in the Texas State Parks On The Air contest April 5th from 14:00:00 UTC until 01:59:59 UTC Sunday the 6th. KF5LFL, Ron and his wife, KF5LMG will be operating with me using the Northwest ARS calsign W5NC. We will be operating 80-10 meters.
A Modest Shack
I operate from a very modest shack. Using my laptop now, an ICOM IC-7000, a Kenwood TS-570D, and a hex-beam I built from the instructions found on several web sites. I have also added Heil Sound headsets, mics and a boom to the shack. Also an Ameritron AL-811H amp (which is seldom used.)
When I'm not playing radio I like to ride my motorcycle, a Harley-Davidson Road King. I ride with friends on day trips and enjoy the air in my hair, good food, good fun and fellowship with like-minded folk.
Since this picture was taken I have shed about 60 lbs. ;=)
