dec 2017 linked to old call ke4wbo,    23CM(1296) GRIDS added jan 9 2018  for both calls ke4wbo/kw4by 

and is current.

2m EME/MS/TR/ES  QSO's current in LOTW/Eqsl as of Jan 9 2018 

I was on satellites  1998 up untill the demise of ao40 , with some spotty activity on the cw birds, a07 mostly.

If you still need a  card/qsl  for a satellite qso , i'll add it to eqsl or lotw, or send a card. 

As of now a few hundred satellite qso's only thing missing from LOTW/EQSL  -73

I was a benchtech thru and after highschool working for Broadband engineering who supplied parts, and designed uhf amps for the CATV Industry.  We later worked at a local busy cb shop, doing installations and repairs. I was in a pawnshop one day and found a dualband HT for sale that did crossband made by Yaesu, purchasing it for $150. I took it over to Marine electronics store who worked on HT's , in fact were good at it. Larry Smith(sk) was the owner and a ham radio op. He suggested i go to classes put on by the West Palm Beach Amateur Radio club, Mort Penn wa2sta was my elmer and got me interested in microwave and cw , as well as wy5i, and w4kog(sk) A few others along the way,  wa5iyx(sk) who taught me alot about propagation , w4oo(sk) Gene Sykes Sr. (original call holder) who taught me about  6m propagation, prop indicators and k8nxi (sk) who was an avid builder like myself, amps, transmitters, antennas(swapped parts often). 




I am a land surveyor with a small shop locally in Jupiter, Fla. On my 40th year with good memories ,places i'd never would have seen otherwise, particularly in the State acquisition tracts.  

1998 10ghz Port Mayacca, Fl  ft847 IF,  early kuhne rig 

homebrew 1296 transverter 1watt and a n6nb design 8el quagi

2m fm liason freq West Palm rptr   

Beverage layout , w8ji  design ,  homebuilt transformers, cattle fence wire 

the northeast and northwest beverages are half wave, and work well often hearing what the other dipoles do not.

The nulls are sharp, and needed to hear through city qrn s20 + at times ,9 miles east of me.

These can me made to fit a city lot, even a short beverage has good performance .

The rest is up to 160m propagation, and lots of chair time like 6m to be successfull.

I used to hear topband " a waste of time in Florida" " to noisy" " i live on a city lot" and a few others reasons

, just not so. My transmit antenna will fit in most city lots, guess it depends how bad you want to try topband )

It took  awhile, lots of trial and error ,  and be prepared to cut some wires.  You can be on the air for under $100.

I'm a new guy on 160 and already have many states worked and many dxcc. -----------





Ham radio and tech school  crossover technologies  into land surveying , a precise geodetic grade

gps receiver with a l1 -l2 band antenna  for an archaeologic site east of Belle Glade. We provided mapping support

to the colleges and part of our Anthropology course on this dig.  This receiver can acheive accuracies down to a few centimeters 3 dimensionally, in as little as an hour, worldwide, using microwaves broadcast from satellites.

The receiver is quite old , 25 years !  but very accurate
