Amateur Operator Since 1984 Main Amateur Interests 2M EME and MS (WSJT)
Future Plans include 432 EME
OCCUPATION Instrumentation and Electrical Technician
Recently Relocated to Chico Texas so I am QRV on 6, 2 and 432 from the temporary hamshack with low power and small yagis on a short temporary tower.
I have also been active on 6 and 2 meters from my portable station on FSK441 Meteor Scatter and have helped fill in some of the empty grid squares on a lot of operators VUCC maps.
The portable setup is a Yaesu FT897 running barefoot with M2 2M and 6M loop antennas. When I am out doing grid expeditions I use a 2M9SSB 9 element yagi mounted 6 feet above the pickup bed and a 6M full wave loop in a diamond configuration. I will add a 432 11 element yagi and a taller portable mast soon.
If you need a grid in this area on 6 or 2 (especially on WSJT meteor scatter or JT65) send me an email with a list of what you need and I will email back when I am going to be active from those areas. I go out to West Texas and up into Oklahoma from time to time so a lot of those grids are a possibility.
Check out my VUCC grid maps below. If you can fill in a grid a email and sked would be appreciated on any mode.
All QSOs are logged and I will promptly upload the to LOTW. I also answer all QSLs NO SASE is required but it is appreciated. I do update EQSL on a regular basis but not as often as LOTW.
I am currently in the process of building the new shack and getting towers in place so I will be QRV on the bands and EME soon.
Hope to see all of you soon on the bands!
