Thanks for checking out my QRZ.com page. I belong to the following organizations:
Ten Ten international, 10-10 number 74809.
Omiss (Old man international sideband society), Omiss number 5964.
SKCC (Straight key century club), SKCC number 9701.
And of course the ARRL (American radio relay league.)
I was first licensed in 1990 as a novice with the call KC6MIB. When I upgraded to technician I became KC6PLV for many years until I got my current callsign K6WMD which is obviously a vanity callsign (I'm a bomb tech for our sheriff's office.).
Below is a photo of my tri-bander with the 2 meter / 440 antenna on top. That 40 foot crank-up tubular tower is mounted on a trailer for portable use. The system weighs about 2400 lbs. For the lower bands I use specific dipoles or a G5RV dipole.
Below is a representation of my shack. I am currently rebuilding my Heathkit SB-101 radio. The rest of the Heathkit equipment in the photo I also rebuilt/restored. I love the old tube equipment with a straight key for CW. I like the simple things.
Until I get my SB-101 rebuilt, I will be using my Yaesu FT-897 as the exciter. I received my worked all state award and am currently working on my DXCC award.
