I passed my Technician in December 2014, upgraded to General in February 2015, and upgraded to Extra in October 2015.  I am an ARRL Volunteer Examiner and a Skywarn Weather Spotter.

The cat, Gattarella, is my constant radio companion and an excellent source of meowing, not to mention copius amounts of white hair.

I would like to thank my elmers: Glenn W2BK  Lee K2HAT  and  Pat KC2WLR

Thanks for visiting and 73's



QSL Info

I confirm all contacts 100% on QRZ and LoTW.  I enjoy getting QSL cards so please send me yours.  If you send me a card direct, I do not require a SASE.

Cards received via the bureau will get my card via the bureau.  I will send cards via the bureau once a year.

I welcome and respond to all SWL reports.

My QSL Card was designed by Jeff  K1NSS  and printed by Randy  KB3IFH

The Shack

This was my shack when I first put it together in January 2015.

I run a Yaesu DX1200 with a LDG AT-1000PRO-II autotuner and FP-1030A linear power supply.  I have an Ameritron ALS-600 solid state amplifier with an ARI-500 interface and 10m mod.

For 160m on a standard size G5RV, I use a LDG AT-100PRO-II autotuner.  I can get a 2:1 SWR as long as I keep the power below 100w.

For 2m I use a Yaesu 2900 to work repeaters in a 50-mile radius.

The computer is a Dell Optiplex 970 with a core i5 and 4GB RAM running Windows 7 and Ham Radio Deluxe.



G5RV up 50+ feet installed on October 4, 2015.  There is about 150 feet of LMR-240 buried between the house and the shed.



My old vertical antenna was a MFJ 1796 multiband 40-20-15-10-6-2 dipole.  Took it down in December 2015 and replaced it with a 2m/70cm vertical.
