First licensed as WN5WCT in 1968, and upgraded to WA5WCT the same year. When incentive licensing went into effect circa 1976, I traded WA5WCT for K5TU in 1977.  Also  PY1ZDK (1977-78), LU/K5TU, K5TU/KL7, G0/K5TU (1990-92).  CWOPS 1626. 

I sold my business and retired Dec 31, 2013. My home in Houston has deed restrictions against all outside antennas, so I have a 102ft horizontal loop antenna in my attic fed with 450 ohm ladder line.  I began building my dream station at my ranch near Columbus, TX in 2013. The 120ft Rohn 55G tower sits on a K0XG rotating tower base with guy bearing rings at 50 and 100 ft. Antennas are all from Ken Garg at JK Antennas. On April 9, 2016, the crane came onsite and all antennas were installed on the tower.

  • 4 element fullsize 40M yagi JK404 Grande at 120 ft (46 ft boom...it's a BEAST!) 
  • 6 element 20M JK206 at 104 ft
  • 6 element 10M and 5 element 15M (same boom) JK1015 at 75 ft
  • 6 element 20M JK206 at 55 ft (phased with the other JK206)

The second tower is a Rohn 45G foldover, 62 ft tall. It was lifted and installed as a single piece using the crane on the same day as the antennas on the 55G tower.

Future projects::

  • 2 x 6 KK1L antenna switch with homebrew Arduino band decoder for the K3S
  • 80M 4 square (with help from K5WA)
  • 3 element 5 band quad on the 62 ft foldover.
