Thank you for visiting the K2AK Amateur Radio Webpage. This page contains information pertaining to the operation of Amateur Extra Class operator Jeffrey Thomas and radio station K2AK. My name is Jeffrey Thomas (Jeff) and I have been an Amateur Radio Operator since June of 1976. I was first licensed as a Novice class operator in the state of New Jersey with call sign WA2QZA.

I upgraded my license to Advanced Class in August of 1976, and was issued the call sign N2AEW which I held until February 1999 when I requested and was issued the vanity call of W2JRT. In March of 2007, I changed vanity call signs to K7WIN. After upgrading to Amateur Extra Class, I upgraded to the 1X2 call sign of K2AK which is in 2-Land where I was first licensed.

From November 1983 to January 1985, I operated HL9JT from a mountaintop in Suwon, South Korea and completed over 15000 contacts with stations from around the world.

I am the president of SAZARC (Southern Arizona Amateur Radio Club). SAZARC is a group of Amateurs that like experimentation and club activities without the requirements of a normal club. Everyone is welcome to become a member and there are no dues or donations required. We are looking for individuals that have the desire to learn and research new technologies.

We currently have a System Fusion repeater (for more details go to http://sazarc.com). We added a UDRC-II control and now have D-Star and Analog.

In my mobile (Mitsubishi Outlander), I installed an ICOM IC-5100A (VHF/UHF D-Star, FM), and an Yaesu FTM-400DR (VHF/UHF System Fusion) mobile rigs both are touch screen for ease of mobile use.

I love SIX Meter openings. My 5 element Cushcraft Yagi works wonders especially when the IC-PW1 is online. I am also active on the HF bands. I can also be found on the rapidly growing in popularity modes of JT65 and JT9 weak signal. Thank you K1JT (Joe) and VK3AMA (Laurie) for WSJT-X, JT-Alert, and JT-Macros for making weak signal modes so much fun and easy to work and track. I use HRD version 6 and its awesome logbook.

Over the years, I have received many awards and certificates for Amateur Radio operating achievements. Achievements included are DXCC, WAS (over 30 different variants of WAS), WAS-Triple Play, WAS-OSCAR, WAC, VUCC, and many others. I have completed over 4000 satellite contacts in just a couple years.
