Ham Member Lookups: 24978

 

I got my American license in 1992, 25 years after having let my JA1YGN (1964-67) callsign in Japan lapse. In the interim period, I was an active member of W1MX during my undergraduate years at M.I.T. (1967-71). My current interests are DXing (especially on 160 M and 6 M), contesting, and ragchewing in foreign languages (especially in French, German, Japanese, and Chinese, lest I start getting rusty). Member of DXCC Honor Roll & 5BDXCC. DXCC standings on 160M, 6M, digital modes are currently 252, 101 (yes, just barely crossed the threshold on 6M, whew!), and 250 entities, respectively.

Transceivers: Yaesu FT-1000, Yaesu FT-2000, Yaesu FT-990, & Icom IC-706. Amps: Command HF-2500 for HF & Command VHF-2000 for 6 M. Antennas: Mosley TA33 for 20/15/10, Mosley WARC rotary dipole, monoband inverted-vees on 80 M, 40 M, and 30 M,  5 element Yagi (M2 6M5X) for 6 M, 13 element Yagi for 2 M, and an inverted-L 80 feet high with 120 radials for 160 M.  For low-band receiving, I use beverages and a backup of a K9AY loop and a magnetic loop.  I am at the highest point in Ann Arbor (980 ft above sea level).

I answer all QSLs, but I would very much request an SASE for directly-mailed cards. I am sorry, but I have very little time to fill out addresses on the hundreds of envelopes and to expend postage on cards that I personally do not need. This holds especially true for domestic 160 meter and 6 meter QSL requests. Once again, I apologize.  Thank you so very much for your cooperation.  I do LoTW and I love it!

If you're wondering what the eye picture is all about, it's a corneal transplant with double-running sutures (thinner than your hair).

See you on the bands or at hamfests!
