Hi, my name is GREG (short for Gregory). Thanks for stopping by.

First licensed in 1968 as WN8CEA (novice class, 75 watts power, CW only, crystal controlled xmit). Then WB8PAO in 1970 as General, Advanced, & Extra until 2008 when I changed to vanity call K8RUE. Worked CW almost exclusively until 2008 when I retired. Now enjoy both SSB & CW working mostly 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, & 15 mtrs mostly DX now but still enjoy rag chews from time to time.

Current equipment - FTDX3000D, FT950, TS530SP, ALS-1306 amp, AL811H amp, AL811HD amp, MFJ-980D tuner, MFJ-989C tuner, Mosley CL33-MWARC yagi, 40 mtr dipole, & 80 mtr 3/8 wave inverted L. 30 mtr full-wave delta loop. All antennas except yagi homemade.

Also enjoy playing music & riding motorcycles.

Have "several" guitars...here is my fav - a Martin limited edition #113 of 200.

A pic of the old man at Hammond C-3 organ.

A pic of Harley-Davidson Electra-Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle. Kinda/sorta keeps me off the air when wx is good, lol. Enjoy riding all year long!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon!!

I am a supporter of the DX Code of Conduct:

I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.

I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.

I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.

I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.

I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.

I will always send my full call sign.

I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.

I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.

I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.

I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.

When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.

I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.

I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
