Atlanta, Georgia, weather forecast
 
I have my own immigration law firm in Atlanta, GA and have been a ham for over 57 years. K4ROZ has always been my call. For the past 8 years I have been inactive on all but 2 meters, as we had to take down a 90' high Rohn 25G tower and beam when we expanded our house here on one of the tallest hills in Atlanta. It has been a great DX location for 37 years. 4 yrs. ago I got the bug again and purchased the following equipment:
RIGS: ICOM 7600 & Kenwood TS-930AT
AMP: ALPHA 78 LEGAL-LIMIT BROADBAND
TUNER: PALSTAR AUTO-TUNE 1.5 KW
ANT: STEPPIR 3el (40 through 6 mtrs.) at 60 feet on a crank-up, tilt-over tower; 80 meter dipole  at 80 feet high.
I couldn't wait to get the rig on the air, so I bought an Alpha Delta 80 meter wire dipole while I was waiting for the SteppIR to arrive, and strung it up to only 10 feet in the air. The center drooped to 5 feet above ground. I was amazed to work the world on all bands, but couldn't always bust thru the pile-ups. Then we got the antenna up to 80 feet in the trees (with the help of our handiman who had a deerblind chair for tree climbing) and it was incredible. I would be able to work DX on 10, 15, 17 & 20 without a beam, often beating out stations with high power and beams. It even loaded on 6 meters, and I worked my first 6 meter QSOs in over 40 years (the last ones were with a Benton Harbor Lunch-box!).
I vividly remember how much fun it was when I made my first novice contacts at 14 years of age; I am just as excited now again and am like a kid in the candy store. I think my being able to talk to people all over the world is what got me interested in going into immigration law. I went to my first Dayton Hamvention 4 yrs. ago and loved it. went several times since. Belong to SE DX Club. See you on the bands!
