I was first licensed in 1967 as a novice. Later that year, I obtained my general and advanced license on the same day at the FCC office in Boston, MA. I upgraded to extra class in December 2010.  This picture is by the fireplace in the shack.

 

 

I have a number of antenna. My primary antenna for 20M thru 6M is a K4KIO hex beam. I installed it in June 2013, father's day, with the help of my oldest daughter Amy. The hex beam replaced a Mosley CL33 tri-bander that was installed in 1974, when I put up the tower.

I am a fan of wire antenna fed with home made open wire line through homebrew 4:1 baluns.  I use about 20 feet of coax from the Palstar AT2KD tuner to feed each balun.

My 80M delta loop is a triangle with one point facing down toward the ground. The top wire is up about 50 feet, hung between two pine trees. I feed the loop halfways up on the southern leg with open wire line. 

I also have a 300' long wire antenna.  All wire antenna are home made. You can see a picture of the Hexbeam and tower.

 

From left to right on the desk you have a ICOM-7200, a YAESU  FTdx-3000, and a ICOM-756PRO. Above and next to the monitor is a PALSTAR AT2KD tuner with a Kenwood TS-570S above it, the ROTOR Control and an AMERITRON AL-80B amplifier.

I use Ham Radio Deluxe for rig control, digital and my electronic logbook.  I enjoy all the HF bands. You can usually find me on 17M, 20M when open.  In the evening, I'm on 40M and 75M.

 

 

I always QSL via LOTW and eQSL. I will send you a paper QSL card if requested.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just before retiring from the Freetown Police Department after 35 years working as a reserve officer.  I also spent 17 years as the elected Town Treasurer and I just completed six years on the Board of Selectman and finally retired.  My full time job was working for Uncle Sam for 37years.

 

 

A PROUD MOMENT!

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary crew after rescuing three men in Buzzards Bay waters on 26 August 2009. (Rod Thomas, Leo Lake, Bob Joseph [KC1BEV]  and yours truely!)

 

 

 

Later, the crew received the 2010 AFRAS Silver Medal Award in Washington DC.

 

 

Here is a picture of my shack in 2007. Amateur Radio, in my opinion, is a great hobby.  73's and Good DX to all!!!
