OM's, YL's and SWL's,

I was first licensed in 1964 at Fort Hood, Texas, as a FCC Novice class operator, WN5KWX.  In 1965, I was assigned to Germany where I obtained a FCC Conditional license, WA5TMT.  On return to the United States, I obtained a FCC General license in 1971, followed in 1974 with the FCC Advanced license and the FCC Amateur Extra license in 1999.  Over the years, I have held the following amateur radio callsigns: WN5KWX, WA5TMT, KZ5MM (Panama Canal Zone 1971-1973), WB4JPS, DA2MM (Federal Republic of Germany 1974-1977), DA2DX (Federal Republic of Germany 1979-1983), KA5HLH, KC5PF and KC4AA.  I have also operated from DX locations in England (G4KHM 1966-1994), Saudi Arabia (HZ1AB 1991-1994) and Cyprus (C4YY 1994 CQ WPX Contest).

My major amateur radio interests are working ARRL Field Day (31 years), Boy Scout Jamboree on the Air (JOTA), DXing, Georgia QSO Party, Shortwave Listening (SWLing) and designing/building antennas. I am a certified FCC Volunteer License Examiner (ARRL and W5YI), an ARRL License Instructor and BSA Radio Merit Badge Counselor.  I hold Life Memberships in the ARRL, QCWA National, QCWA Chapter 49 (Peach State) and QCWA Chapter 91 (Vic Clark).  In 1973 I was awarded The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Public Service Award for meritorious work in connection with the Managua, Nicaragua, earthquake disaster as detailed on pages 67-71 in the April 1973 edition of QST magazine.  The ARRL Public Service Award was awarded for providing emergency communications assistance for disaster relief from the Panama Canal Zone operating from amateur radio stations, KZ5MM and KZ5USA.  I am an active member in the Milledgeville Amateur Radio Club (MARC) and the Southeastern DX Club (SEDXC) Atlanta, Georgia.  I have been awarded the ARRL Five Band DXCC Award, 12 Meter DXCC Award and 17 Meter DXCC Award.  In years 2001, 2005 and 2010; I served on the BSA National Jamboree K2BSA Staff at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia.

I operate two HF radio stations consisting of;  two Elecraft K3 transceivers with two Alpha 374A amplifiers.  The "Antenna Farm" consists of  the following antennas: 10 and 15 Meters - Telrex DBM-1015 Yagi; 12 Meters - "Homebrew" Extended Double Zepp; 17 Meters - "Homebrew" two element Yagi; 20 Meters - Telrex 20M-326 Yagi; 40 Meters - "Homebrew" 1/4 wavelength elevated vertical with four radials and a "Homebrew" Extended Double Zepp; 80 Meters - Gladiator GL80M Mark II "Center Loaded" elevated vertical with five radials and 160 Meters - elevated Inverted "L" with three radials and a "Homebrew" 58 foot end fed SWL antenna.

My interest in amateur radio began as a Shortwave Listener (SWL) in 1954.  My first shortwave receiver (Hallicrafters 5R10A) was a gift from my Grandfather Mills.  I later upgraded the 5R10A to a Hallicrafters S-40B receiver.  I spend time listening on the broadcast, medium wave and shortwave bands with a selection of HF receivers; Collins 51J-4, Collins 51S-1, Collins 75A-4, Collins 75S-3B, Collins R390A with Sherwood Engineering SE-3 Synchronous Detector, Drake R4-C with Sherwood Engineering Modifications, Drake SPR-4, Hammarlund SP-600 or Japan Radio Company NRD 535D.

I QSL 100%, direct or via the ARRL Bureau.

Hope to work you on the bands!
