QRV 80-10M, 6M, 2M all mode, 70cm all mode, 23cm all mode. 

I operate 90% CW, but enjoy all bands and modes.  I love weak signal operations on 2m, 70cm, and 1.2ghz.  6m is also a fun band for me.   I occasionally dabble in HF Digi-modes thanks to my good friend AF5SA who loaned me his homebrewed interface that is totally isolated. He built it in the Altoids can pictured below. PSK31 contacts are stacking up!

On HF you can usually find me on 10, 15, or 20 or 40 meters CW working an old and tired but reliable Lionel J-36 US Army Bug which I rescued from its demeaning stint as a door stop from an ex-wife of an ex military radio man.

First licensed at the age of 13 in the summer of 1974 as WN0ONP Novice class, in Salina Kansas.  Influenced mostly by my father, W0EPB (Silent Key - miss you pops). Climbed the ladder to General class license in '75 at the age of 14 years.

Graduated Salina High School South, Salina Ks in 1979. Joined the US Air Force in 1980 as a Morse systems operator and Direction Finding Operator, USAF Intelligence Command, I was stationed in England, Hawaii, and eventually Texas where I grew roots and married my soulmate - N5YEC.

Licensed as NH6GV (extra class) during tour (84-88)  in Hawaii while assigned to Wheeler AFB, Kunia Tunnel Facility. Worked with Oahu Hawaii RACES while stationed in Hawaii. Recieved an Honorable Discharge Dec '92. Currently licensed as AC5RN.  Now have four beautiful harmonics and a wonderful and beautiful XYL; Monica N5YEC.

On HF: Running a Yaesu FT-950 bare with a ground mounted vertical.

Other hams who have influenced me in life: W0CY (silent key), KH6LT, WB0ORM (my best friend), WB0DRL (now N0OY), WA0TKJ, KH6IJ (silent key - Katashi Nose), and K4YEX (silent key). Thank you gentlemen!

I like to run different configurations on my mobile capabilities depending on different factors

If you are a ham with a JK model Jeep Wrangler, you know there are limited choices for antenna mount locations. Thanks to Jerry at www.breedlovemounts.com !! He took one of his heavy duty solid brass ball mounts and custom made it for my Wrangler. By removing the left tail light, I was able to access a good spot.  Jerry was great!
