I have DXCC on 160M, 80M, 40M, 30M, 20M, 17M, 15M, 12M and 10M. Country total is 349 countries confirmed. Logs are uploaded to LoTW daily.

I was active in Texas from 1979 to 1999. My station had: (1) a 250 foot tower with four 6-element 20 meter yagis in a switched phased array, with an 8-element 10 meter beam at 260 feet; (2) a 200 foot tower with four 6-element 15 meter yagis in a switched phased array; (3) a 140 foot tower with a 4-element 40 meter yagi; (4) a 90 foot tower with two 6-element 10 meter yagis stacked; (5) a 100 foot tower with 6-element 20 meter beam, a 5-element 15 meter beam, and a tri-bander (20-15-10); (6) a 30 foot tower with a 3-element WARC yagi (12 & 17); (7) an 80-meter dipole between 250 foot tower and 200 foot tower; (8) an 80-meter dipole between 250 foot tower and 140 foot tower; (9) 160 meter sloper hanging from 250 foot tower; (10) an 80 meter bobtail curtain; (11) a full-size 80 meter vertical; and (12) various beverage antennas and 2 meter yagis.  The station was located near Iola, Texas.  

I now live in Arizona.  I am involved with my friend Tom K5RC in developing and supporting his station in Nevada.  The station has a 175 foot tower with a 3-element 80 meter yagi.  The station has a 140 foot tower with two 4-element 40 meter yagis stacked, and a 125 foot tower with a 2-element 40 meter yagi.  The antennas available on 20 meters, 15 meters, and 10 meters include stacked yagis for each band.  Most of my operation is from that station in Nevada.  More information concerning Tom's station is on his website at http://www.w7rn.com.

In addition, I sometimes operate from New York, Georgia, Maine, California, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona.  I operated from Alabama from 1972 to 1975.  I operated from Virginia from 1976 to 1978.  I have also operated from Antigua, Haiti, and Puerto Rico.

Additional photos of the Iola, Texas station are on the W7RN website at www.w7rn.com (http://www.w7rn.com/welcome-to-the-comstock-memorial-station-w7rn/33-years-in-texas-wa5lesk5rc/radio-iola-k5xi/)

I made my first QSO as a licensed amateur radio operator on 6 meters.  I have now come full circle, and spend time operating on 6 meters whenever the band is open.  I still think it is the magic band.
