I was licensed originally in 1986 at the age of 14. My Dad, N0IRN and I obtained our licenses at the same time. I was immediately drawn to chasing DX. After finishing school I pursued a career in law enforcement including communications and was drawn away from Amateur Radio for some time while working and starting my family. After leaving law enforcement and getting into the private business sector my son, at that time 12, became interested in radio. Richard KD0HGY obtained his General ticket in 2009 and we both became active. I enjoy chasing DX, contesting, and building antennas. My wife, son, and two daughters live on our long time family farm in Stone County Missouri. I am the Vice President and a member of the technical committee of our local club, the Nixa Amateur Radio Club. I also write a small DX column for our club newsletter, Open Mic. Please visit our website at nixahams.net and if you visit the area be sure to check at our local repeaters which are listed on the site. I am also a member of the Missouri DX and Contest Club. I am also an elected to the board of directors for our local Emergency Communications and 911 center.


Our station is located at our home atop a 1340 foot hill south of Galena Missouri. The HF station consist of a Yaesu FT-2000 using either a Heil HM-10 mic or a Heil ProSet Elite headset.The station amplifier is a Alpha 78cpx and using a Palstar AT4K tuner. A TRi Ex 55 foot crank up tower supports a KLM KT34 which has been rebuilt with the M2 parts. For 40 meters I'm using a pair of phased verticals on a large radial field firing them with the Comtek controller. I am using multiple wire antennas for 160, 80, 30, 17, and 12 meters along with a 480 foot beverage antenna facing east. I am using a Signalink USB for digital modes along with True TTY. All logging is done on AALog with the exception of contesting in which N1MM logging software is used.


I still enjoy traditional paper QSL cards and will QSL direct 100%. I also participate in Log Book of the World and upload logs no less than twice a month.


I look forward to seeing you on the air. 73 and Good DX!
