I was first licenced in 1988 as KB9ANF. I enjoy DX'ing and spend most of my time on the digital modes, particularly PSK31 and RTTY. I also enjoy Shortwave listening and repairing and restoring old radios, especially tube types, and building and using tube type and crystal receivers. I'm also an active ARES member. Besides radio I like hunting and fishing, and also photography.

Update: Lately I have been spending much more time on CW, and also am now operating a Winlink Gateway station. K9ANF-10 RMS packet 1200 baud on 145.610, and K9ANF Winmor HF 500 and 1600 bandwidth on 7.072 and 7.101 mhz center frequency respectively.
 My Station: Txcvr Kenwood TS-590; Amp Heathkit SB-221; Tuner MFJ-989D; Antennas OCFD for 80m 40m as an inverted vee @ 45 ft; Inverted el for 160m @ 45 ft; Trapped tri-band dipole for 20m, 15m, 10m @ 40 ft.
 Wire antennas are raised and lowered with rope halyards on crossarms, allowing them to be raised, lowered, and serviced from the ground.
 For my Winlink station I am running a Yeasu FT-450 through a MFJ-949
tuner to a 40m inverted vee @ 35 ft.
