Ham Member Lookups: 1955



The above photo is of the Home QTH. The tree on the left side of photo is now gone. Lost in the ice storm of 2011 The tower is mounted against the left rear cornerof the house and the tree was a great screen to blockthe view of the tower from the street. It was also the tie point for my 20M dipole. I miss that tree.

Hello OM, Thanks for visiting my QRZ page. I was first licensed in 1965 as WA1ENM. For more years than I want to admit I operated with that callsign as a technician class. In 1983 I finally decided to try for the General Class license which I passed on first try and several months later I upgraded again to Advanced and received the callsign KB1XI. In 2005 I upgraded to Extra and took the Vanity callsign AC1U but I was never "comfortable" with that call so I have recently decided to revert back to KB1XI under the vanity program (luckily it had not been reissued to someone else). No more callsign changes for this dude.

Please consider using LOTW to record your QSOs with me. If you do not upload a matching QSO record to LOTW then I do not get credit nor do you with ARRL for the contact. This is the Cyber age and although paper QSLs are nice electronic filing is a lot more efficient and a permanent retrievable record of a contact. For those stations that do not currently use LOTW I will still upload the contact to LOTW anyway and if you decide later to use the program your contact with me will get credited when you do upload the matching record. Obviously LOTW is my preferred method of QSL exchange.TW butPI will upload all my QSOs to

My QSL policy is simple:

I send traditional QSL cards for DX contacts to the ARRL Outgoing QSL Bureau (quarterly) and regularly to LoTW.

10-10 and county hunter "paper" cards will be sent via mail to US and Canada upon receipt of your mailed QSL card.

All contacts will be uploaded to QRZ logbook, LoTW and eQSL on a regular basis (usually within 24 hours).

Please note: I Do Not honor requests for $US or IRCs

Although the years seem to be rolling by to fast (73 and counting) I am still quite active and still work full time although not as hard as I used to. I am still able to climb the tower whenever I need to. Not many at 73 can say the same.

Taking down the unused VHF and UHF Ringos to make room for the 17 and 20 meter dipoles.

1989 2013

The above picture was of me at my station in Northwood NH in 1988. Note that the HF rig and D104 mic are the same ones that I currently use. Not bad for 25 years of service and no repairs ever needed. I'll only part with this radio when it goes "up in smoke". Hurrah for Kenwood.

I try to get in some HF time each morning. I am off to work at 1500 hrs so I get very little evening operating time except on my days off (Mon./Tues.). I have separate resonant dipoles for 10, 17, 20, 40, and 75 meters (sorry nothing on 160 yet). Look for me on the OMISS and NATA nets.

Please visit my webpage at http://kb1xi.com. 73 and good DX.
