Below is my Ham Van, a converted TV news van acquired in 2017.

Check out my article in the November issue of CQ Magazine - page 79.

Operting as P40N, Aruba, from 9/27 to 10/3/17.  Will use LOTW on my return.  Otherwise use SASE to home address.

For those of you who worked us on Friday, July 21, 2017 from EN85, we were indeed in EN85, located at Hoeft State Park, by Rogers City, Michigan.

On Saturday, we are in EN84gg61, Tawas Point State Park.

We are logging all FT8 contacts as FT8.

If you really desire an immediate QSL card, we will accept SASE to my home address.

Once the ARRL LOTW accepts FT8 as a mode, we will upload within a few weeks, both the EN85 and EN84 contacts.

We are using the "Ham Van" with an Elecraft K3 and a 3 element beam, up maybe 45 feet or so.


My latest project, the Ham Van.  I purchased a used TV station truck with a telescoping mast, and along with my friends, converted it to a roving ham station.  Mast is 45', shown with 6m beam and one dipole on a sidearm.


Below is QSL card from DX vacation to Bermuda.

Ham Radio Greetings from K8JH

Re:  K8JH/VP9 Bermuda operations - will QSL via LoTW or direct (SASE please).

Check to see if you are in my Bermuda log:



Below is 7 element 50mHz WOS LFA Yagi by InnoVAntenna.  Yagi boom is 30 ft long and is mounted on Tower # 2 - 50ft of Rohn 25.  The vertical on the mast is for 2m -  a Diamond F23H, 15' high .  Tower also supports several wire antennas.  Rotor is a Yaesu G-450A.

Tower #1 picture (above) is updated as of 10/2014 with Tennedyne T-10 Log Periodic Antenna.


The picture shows tower #1 (70' Universal 17-70). Tower #1 supports two dipoles and the G5RV. 

The T-10 is rotated by a Yaesu G-1000.  Above the HF beam is a 4 elem Cushcraft 220 mhz beam. 

Lastly, on top is a 2m/440 vertical - Diamond X200.   Not pictured is a 160m L in the trees.

I was first licensed in high school in 1969 as WB8ESK. Later in 1976, I received my Amateur Extra and was able to obtain the call K8JH.

Born and raised in Michigan USA on a potato farm.  I have worked for several years in Catholic parish and school administration. More recently I have moved into higher education administration first at a community college in Arkansas and at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI.  I am now working for a charitable foundation in Grand Rapids, MI.

I have long been a fan of CW and DX in particular. More recently I have become interested in digital modes, particularly PSK-31.

I am a member of 10-10, QCWA and a life member of ARRL.

100% QSL via direct, LoTW, or W8 Bureau.
