I passed my Technician in December 2014, upgraded to General in February 2015, and upgraded to Extra in October 2015.  I am an ARRL Instructor and Volunteer Examiner with the Capital Area Radio Enthusiasts

I am a Skywarn Weather Spotter and have a weather station in my backyard that uploads to the Citizen Weather Observer Program.

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

Greg

 


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.

 


Anntenas

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.


WX Station
