(Photo above) - License Plate mixing Child Abuse Prevention and my favorite ham activity: DX!

 

My name is "Jim". My Dad, WB9MST - (SK), was my first inspiration in this hobby. After 40 some years of every-day life and occupations getting in the way, my neighbor down the road (K5BG) re-kindled my interest in this hobby. So, thats how I got here. Retired from an occupation of aircraft electronics and RF testing (27+ years) in 2007, only to work harder on our small ranch. In between caring for our Special Needs Granddaughter, mowing, building fences, etc.; I spend relaxing time building (and maintaining) different types of antennas and working DX.  I prefer and enjoy working Long Haul DX with my DX friends. I only work on HF and MF (160). I also enjoy contesting as time permits. Oh, and a little bit of unstructured net ragchew. I am aging every day, and don't have time left for structure of any kind in my life.

The station consists of the following equipment: Radios; Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark V (200 W),  Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark V Field (100 W) with ALL the filters. (Yes - I am in love with the Yaesu Quality and Operation). Both radios enjoy being connected to an Ameritron AL-82Q, ATR-30 Tuner, TH-7DXX (Super Thunderbird) Tri-bander at 50' (Tower 1), 12/17/30 Meter D3W at 55', 12/17M 9 element beam @ 45' (Tower 2), Dipoles for 80 & 40 (Tower 3), Delta Loop for 30 Meters, 160 Meter inverted "L". I also use a "Hi-Z" Receive Antenna Array System for 30M through Top Band, located about 450' from transmit antennas. All of my QSO's are from my own equipment at my home QTH in Weatherford, TX.    

No Remotes, No RHR, Never.

 

I use LoTW - it's free, and I upload regularly. Your QSO/QSL card is in LoTW

NO More Bureau mailings since crazy price increases and fees!

Occasional Eqsl uploads.

If you really need my card, supply SASE and/or postage.

My wife and I are raising our 19 year old special needs Granddaughter (6 years functional), so time spent on the airwaves is very limited. My family comes first, then the radio hobby and all the other things in life. Although I would love to be, my head is not buried in the radio hobby. I just don't have the time to be consumed with radio activities. :(

Even though my Granddaugter is my number one priority in life, I have been able to manage the following progress during my first 7 years in the hobby:

  • 9 Band WAS
  • WAS - CW, SSB, Digi
  • DXCC (per LOTW): Currently 323 Confirmed - 318 phone, 301 CW (As of March 2017) - plus 2 deleted entities.

 

12/17 Meter Beam at 45'

 

IMHO - If you use remote sites to work DX - you are cheating. It's nothing more than Twitter for whiney losers and cheaters!

It is NOT in the true Ham Spirit.

Suck it up and do it with your own equipment! - I do!

 

TH-7DXX Tri-bander at 50'

 

I don't always work DX, but when I do - it isn't RHR.

 

 

Operated with the W1AW Texas Team as: W1AW/5 Texas - What an honor - What a Blast!
