10-10 international # 74809, Omiss # 5964 (old man international sideband society), SKCC # 9701 and Logbook of The World user. ARRL member as well.

Echolink operation station "K6WMD-L", node # 625448 linked to my home radio in Thousand Oaks, California at 145.700 Mhz simplex, no pl, up 40 feet at 50 watts which is currently disabled. I also have an echolink node "K6WMD-R" #768599 in Camarillo, California. Its on a simplex radio as well up 50 feet at 50 watts on 145.770 Mhz and is fully operational.

I got my first license as KC6MIB in 1990 as a novice.

I currently use a Yaesu FT-897 transceiver and and a Heathkit SB-220 legal limit amplifier which I fully restored. I use a 3 element Hy-Gain tribander on a 40 foot crankup mast mounted on a trailer sometimes through a Dentron Super Tuner if needed. I can take this setup mobile with me. I have a 40 and 80 meter sloper which is hard to see in the photo below as well as my vhf-uhf vertical ground plane on the very top.

I also enjoy experimenting with home brew antennas and still prefer the original digital mode (CW) with a straight key.

 

Below is my current setup. I have taken down the Heathkit SB-101 transceiver which needs a lot of work.

Below is one of my recent projects. A dummy load in a gallon can with mineral oil. I used 94, one watt 4.7k resistors in parallel between two copper clad boards . That gave me a 50 ohm (actually 50.2 ohms) resistance with no inductive or capacitive reactance. The impedance is ALWAYS 50 ohms and it can easily handle several hundred watts. I filled the can with mineral oil (baby oil) which is non-conductive and used to displace the heat. Works well at 1.5 kilowatts.

Home brew dummy load

I'm currently pursuing my bachelor degree in electronic engineering technology.

REGARDING QSL CARDS:

If I receive a QSL card from you directly, I will send you one back directly. I now use LoTW (ARRL logbook of the world.)

If I receive a card from you through the OMISS QSL Bureau ( info at www.omiss.net ), I will send one back to you via the "buro." Please do not send any QSL cards through E-QSL.
