Ham Member Lookups: 891

 

Originally licensed at 15 years old in 1962 as KN7WZU, I took a break from ham radio for a few years. Forty years later, I passed my general licence test and operated as K7WZU. After completing my extra licence, I switched to AA7ET.

My QTH is 12 miles south of Olympia, Washington, 60 miles south of Seattle. I live in the foothills of the Capitol Forest at 500 ft. elevation with evergreen trees all around. My XYL, Ann, is a recently retired school teacher and I am a recently retired Architect. We have two grown up and away from home Kids.

My base station consists of an IC-746 PRO, barefoot, feeding a 564 foot horizontal closed loop antenna pulled through the pine trees at 10 to 20 feet above grade.  The loop is made of #12 gage solid copper insulated well pump wire, fed by 20 feet of ladderline connected to a 4:1 balun outside my shack. It has multiple harmonic frequencies that resonate well on 10, 15, 20, 40, 80 and 160 meters with very low background noise. And just like my XYL, It's very quiet, strong, invisible, inexpensive and reliable.  Falling trees have taken it out multiple times but with a ladder and soldering gun, it's easy to fix.

I hope to see you on the air sometime.

73, - Ray
