AK6E and N6HR at AK6E qth.

Several years ago I received a letter inviting me to a class on amatuer radio (six weeks) culminating in a test session in which I would be granted (if I passed) a license as a Ham Radio Operator, the sender of this letter/offer was my seventh grade science teacher Lloyd WA6KZV. Needless to say, I took the class and test and received my novice ticket (kc6utc which I held for 19 years), and thereupon entered the world of amatuer radio. Since that time, I have upgraded to Extra class and made a lot of friends in the states and abroad. As diverse as amatuer radio is, I find DX'ing and IOTA the most exciting, I am sure a lot of folks will think working a pile-up with heavy qrm to be quite brutal but I relish the challenge of getting that 'Q'.

My station is quite modest what with all the equipment on the market these days but I enjoy using it and the station has served me well.

Main station: Kenwood TS830S, VFO230, SM220 station monitor, Dentron MT-3000A, SP230 matching speaker and TL922A (with several mods by N6WK). This station is used primarily on 10 thru 40m.

Backup station: Kenwood TS870S and TL922A with mods by N6WK) used on upper bands.

Ragchew and SWL: ICOM 1C765, IC2KL 500w amp and AT500 auto tuner. This is a great setup to move on the fly and very user friendly but it dosen't have the ears or the power out of the Kenwood station.

Antennas: Optibeam OB9-5 at 60-70',  43' vertical with (40) 65 foot radials (and growing) primarily used on 40m, and Carolina Windom 80 at 60'flat topped, 10 thru 80 (with tuner).

Thanks for looking at my biography and best of luck in whatever aspect of amatuer radio you choose.
