Licensed since 1962 with same call as originally issued. I work all bands from 160 to 432 but my main interest is 6M DX. I have 132 DXCC on 6M since I got on the band in late 2003. I do not collect grids but I am more than happy to sked for FM28 or Delaware on any band. I QSL 100% if there is a SASE included.
The picture is my 225' rotating tower for 6M. Antennas are M2 6M9KHW 50' boom yagis. There are 6 9el yagis and 2 11el yagis on the tower. Antennas are at 30',57',84',111',138',165',192' and 219'. Feedline is 1 5/8" and 7/8" hardline. All phasing lines are LMR-600. I run 1500w on 6M with one of 3 amplifiers, Henry 3006 ( 8877), Amp Supply LK800 (3 x 3CX800A7). My newest amp is 1500W all solid state Harris Platinum I from an analog Channel 2 TV transmitter.
In 1996 I founded QSL.NET and QTH.NET. In 2002 I was awarded the Dayton Hamvention "Technical Excellence" award for my Internet sites. I retired from the web work in 2008 and turned all the domains over to KA9FOX who has merged them with his QTH.COM site.
I am the trustee of W3DOG, a VHF contest club station. I also maintain the W3DOG/B on 50.071 from FM28ki. Located in Ocean City, Maryland on the Atlantic beach the beacon gets reported worldwide. The beacon is 50 watts to stacked loops at 275' Feedline is 7/8' hardline.
