Thank you for stopping by my station.
I first became interested in amateur radio while working for Nolan (Stu) Walker, W8ADQ, at his store, Walker Radio, when I was in high school in the late sixties. My father bought my first SW receiver, a Hallicrafter WR-1000, in 1966. This really sparked my interest in Ham radio.  I was also encouraged by Thomas Filicky of Canal Fulton, Ohio who taught electronics at Oakwood High School, Canton Ohio.

Base Station;
May two stations consist of an Icom 7100 for RV travel and the Elecraft K3s for the home  and a IC-5100  DStar & V/UHF for DStar & 2M/440 RV mobile.

I have a Cushcraft Vertical for 40 and 80 M, a DXCC  Inverted-vee antennas. Each of the dipoles are about 35 feet high for use on 75, 40 and 20 meters. I also use the mini-beam Cushcraft MA5B with a short roof mount tower, by Glen Martin.
I am also now into DStar which is a very interesting aspect of this hobby!

Portable Station;
My portable station (IC-7100) consistes of various dipole antennas, and the Buddipole system with a few other long wire antennas.  This station can be set-up and on the air (HF and VHF) in minutes.

NCS Work;
I am currently a net control station for the 7290 traffic (7290trafficnet.org) and the RVers net (http://rvradionetwork.com/).  Look forward to hearing you on these nets!

Hope to work you on the air! smiley
