My new truck all loaded up with radio gear ready to go!!  2017 Ram Rebel edition!

Activation of Mark Twain National Forest.

My Current Shack set up.

My 5 Band Hex Beam.

My HF portable set up for activating POTA parks on the air is my Kenwood ts-480 HX 200W model and a custom made 92' mast with a also custom made quad mount with Hustler 17m, 20m, 40m, and 75m.  I have recently add a TGE voltage booster, to my mobile rig!  It keeps a constant voltage to the radio, and I am sold on its effectiveness! http://stores.tgelectronics.org/

Currently working on activating all Missouri K entities.  Below is my list the in yellow have been fully activated with 10 or more contacts.  5 Left to go!

As an activator you do a lot of driving, most of my trips now are at parks more than 3 hours from home just to get started.  This was from my last trip heading over to the  Mississippi river side of Missouri.  Lonely road until you get to a park then you can literally talk to the world!

I recently met up with W8TAM Tom and his wife Julie K8VOX on a massive trip they did from Texas working their way back to MI.  We met at Roaring River State park about a hour from my home QTH, where they set up a NVIS doublet antenna that did a tremendous job at getting out of the steep Ozarks hills that we where in. 

On my most recent multi park run Trail of Tears State Park located on the banks of the Mississippi River, K-1790.

 Activation of  K-4425 Ozark St. Francis National Forest. Had an amazing activating point called Matney Knob overlooking the White River, it was the highest point in sight and you can drive right up to the top.  I had a blast working the big SSB contest as I activated this new park.  The first picture is of the Knob as I was driving in, you can see the mist following the White River.

This is on top of Matney Knob, I can't wait to go back when the leaves are off and get some pictures of the views.

Some pictures from my Oklahoma 5 park run. On 9-24-17

Below is an activation of Ozarks National Scenic River-ways K-4009.

Below is Wakonda state park.

Perfect operating spot at K-1753 Cuivre River State Park.

K-3336 Battle of Athens.

One of my Cheetah runs K-1748 Big Lake SP, K-0380 Squaw Creek NWR, K-1770 Lewis and Clark SP, K-Weston Bend SP, and K-3365 Thomas Hart Benton Home and Studio HS, all in Mo.

Below was at K-3365 a very tough urban operation.  The staff allowed me to back in a very very tight driveway that wasn't built for quad cab trucks!  I had dreaded this activation and I am glad it is in the books!!

K-3367 Union Covered Bridge

My 2 meter rig is a Icom IC-V8000 for my base rig, going to a J-pole in my attic.  My truck rig is a icom 2300 going into a larson antenna mag mount on my roof.  I enjoy working with my local hams on our repeater.  We just recently installed a solar panel that is capable of running the whole station in a complete outage.

  I QSL Direct, on QRZ and EQSL, and I upload all contacts to LoTW  73's


Our Beam set up for field day 2016!!

I joined our Ham Radio Taskforce at the hospital below is pictures of the hospitals emergency communication trailer.  Very cool set up and the AC isn't bad on hot Missouri summer days!!

In September of 2015 I realized a lifelong goal of going full solar.  We are a grid tie 13Kw system 48 panels total, 24 facing south and west and 24 facing east.  We are loving the system and it is working as advertised!!

One of my Portable set up's back during NPOTA a crushcraft R5 antenna hitch mounted with a Yaesu FT-8D activating Wilson Creek National Battlefield NPOTA BF-11, on top of "Bloody Hill" note the cannon to the right of my truck!!

To get some 40m contacts I have added a Gwhip 40m OCF Windom to my portable set up!

September 29th MN39 George Washington Carver National Monument, and MP07 Pea Ridge National Military Park.

Pea Ridge West Overlook!

My 9/30/16 activation of the Ozarks Scenic River-ways RV 05 was quite a fun trip, very little access I found a goat path that took me to 'Bluff View" access point where I went to work.  I had to put it in 4 wheel drive to get in and out!  I wish I could have gotten a few more contacts I know this was a needed park but the bands seemed less than stellar!

My activation of the Buffalo River National Park, from the Buffalo Point Campground.  Below is the coolest sign I have seen at a park yet!!

My Truck with the sign!

My setup at the campground, it worked a lot better than I expected as you really dropped off down in a huge valley.
