Info on K8DV

K8DV is active on SSB, CW and RTTY on 160 through 6 meters and spends most of his time chasing DX and after 25 years of hamming in 2006, he received DXCC and has been bitten by the DX bug.

The main station consists of a Elecraft K3, Elecraft KPA500. The secondary station consists of a Icom IC-756 Pro III, Alpha 76PA. The backup rig is a Kenwood TS-570dg and Ameritron AL-572.

K8DV antennas consist of a 3 element SteppIR with 30/40 meter add-on and inverted vee's on 80, 40 and 160. For 80 and 40 K8DV also uses a Hy-Gain Hy-Tower.  K8DV also uses an inverted Vee on 160 and uses a K9AY receiving loop antenna system by Array Solutions on lower bands.

K8DV also enjoys a boatanchor collection that consist of several differentpieces of equipment ranging from Heathkit,Drake and Kenwood and others.

A favorite piece of equipment is the first radio that his Dad got for both of them to use when K8DV got his General ticket, a Ten Tec 540 with Power Supply and remote VFO and it works just as good today as it did 35 plus years ago.
