First licensed as KA5CGT as a novice in 1978 and then upgraded to Tech, General (new call sign, N5BPU), then Advanced class. More recently I upgraded to Extra class at Dayton in 2011 and now have the callsign, WV8H. I was very active in emergency communications for a number of years in Arkansas and served as state SEC for one year. I was on call as a net control operator for the CAREN weather net for many years and worked many storm sessions at the National Weather Service in North Little Rock.
I moved to West Virginia in 1992 and was inactive until May 2010. I got back on the air using an attic 'Suburban Multibander' for 10-80M and a inverted-L 160M antenna but I now have a G5RV as well as a 'radio active' flagpole (5BTV) in addition to the inverted-L. As you can see from the picture, I run a Kenwood TS2000X transceiver and an Expert 1K-FA Amp. For mobile I have a Yaesu VX-8DR handheld (6M-UHF), Kenwood TH-D710G as well as a TS-480 (160M-6M) with a Little Tarheel screwdriver antenna. We work SOTA and use a FT-857D for this activity.
Hope to work you some time in the future.
