I have been a licensed ham for 57 years and have held the following calls: WN5AUP, WA5AUP, WB2PBI, and WA7QHV. I have held the callsign AF7M since 1978.

I mainly operate CW and like to chase DX.

I have a "fan" vertical, composed of wire elements concealed in a mesquite tree in the back yard, which allows me to operate on 10, 12, 15, 17, 30, 40, 80 and 160 meters. I have 66 radials ranging in length from 20 to 110 feet on this small mobile home lot.

The tree also supports a 80/40 meter inverted vee dipole with the center at 25 feet which I use an a NVIS antenna.  A 60 meter inverted vee dipole is also in the tree with its center at 30 feet.

A 3 element yagi for 6 meters and a 7 element yagi for 2 meters are on a 15 foot mast in the back yard.

A 20 meter delta loop antenna hangs from a palm tree in the front yard.

The rig is a Elecraft K3s running about 100 watts output. I use a Palstar AT4K antenna tuner on 80 and 160 meters.

My QRP rig is a LNR Mountain Topper with an output of 5 watts.

I am also active on amateur television (ATV).  I operate through the W7ATN repeater on Mt. Lemmon (9,159 ft.) which is linked to the Phoenix area and is part of the Amateur Television Network (ATN).

I have a 2.4 GHz AREDN mesh node (AF7M-QTH), using a Ubiquiti NanoStation M2 mounted on a 35 foot mast, connected to the Southern Arizona (SOAZ) mesh network.

I can operate D-Star (TH-D74A), DMR (MD-380) and Fusion (FT1DR).

I have both an AllStar node (47234) and EchoLink node (960979) on 446.125 Mhz Simplex PL71.9.

Besides amateur radio, I collect and research ancient Chinese coins and charms. My website is primaltrek.com.

I enjoy motorcycling and currently ride a BMW R1200GS.  A Yaesu FT1D beacons me (AF7M-7) on APRS.

I also volunteer as a docent at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

73 es gud dx,

Gary AF7M
