Ham Member Lookups: 14209


I have been a ham since Jan 30, 1957.  SKCC 11698.  I QSL 100% and have for 61 years!

I enjoy working 2 meter SSB .  A lot of hams are not aware of 2 meter SSB.  Some would be surprised that without the use of repeaters, on 2 meter SSB, you can work stations 200, to 400, miles away or even more.  I know of a ham that just lacks 2 states for WAS on 2 meters. We have a group called the Beamspinners that get together mornings at 0800 local.  If you are mobile in the front range area of Colorado from Albuquerque, NM  to  Casper, WY check us out.  Yes we cover that area!  We have check-ins on 144.200 USB  from Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico and  Wyoming. One thing you should know is, it will really help if you are horizonally polorized. Vertically polorization works but is not nearly as efficient as most all of the stations are horizonally polorized. (8 to 10db gain)

On 2 meters I am using a 12 element beam and an ICOM IC-7000 or IC-706MK2g all with LDG matching and an RF Concepts amplifier running about 175+ watts.

On 70cm I am using a 20 element beam and running 50 watts.


On 6 meters I use mostly the IC-706MK2g the antenna is a 4 element beam at 40 feet.

I normally mostly CW in my everyday routine moving from 80 3.540, MHz 40 7.040, MHz anywhere on 30 meters, and on 20 14.040. 

For QRP I use a beautiful OHR-100A 20 meter rig.

The antennas I use are:

80 to 10 meters is a  43 foot Zero 5 vertical.                                            

80/ 40 meter  HyGain trap dipole                                                                                        

40 meter NVIS dipole at 7 feet                                                                                

20 meter dipole at 18 feet

I spent 40 years collecting Heathkits.  I had to sell off a lot of them due to health.  I still have around 50. (at the peak of my collecting I had nearly 1000 Heathkit items).                                                                      

At the present I have: 7 AT-1s (transmitter),  8 DX-35s (transmitter),  7 VF-1s VFO),  1 AR-1 (receiver),         1 AR-2 (receiver),   2 AR-3s (receiver),  1 BR-1 (receiver),  GR-54 (receiver),  GR-64 (receiver),  RX-1 Mohawk (receiver),  TX-1 Apache (transmitter),  2 SB-10s (sideband adapter),  2 HD-19s (phone patch),   2 QF-1s (Q multiplyer),  3 AM-2s (SWR bridge),  2 CA-1 (Conelrad alerts),  1 HM-2103 (RF 1000 watt dry dummy load and wattmeter),  1 HM-2102 (reflected power meter),  SA-2040 (antenna tuner),  7 Heathkit speakers,  5 Heathkit 12VDC power supplies,  and numerous pieces of Heathkit test equipment.

I also have a very nice HQ-170.
