I received my Novice class license (KA8ETK) in March 1979, General class in November 1979, and finally Extra class in December 2009. I was an avid contester & DXer until 1988, then got out of the hobby.

I became active again in March 2009, and bought all new equipment. Main rig is a K3/100, P3 & KPA500 and recently added a 2nd K3/100 as a back-up radio. I have another complete station consisting of a Icom 746Pro with a AL-811H amplifier. Put up a tower, which holds the A4S, a 3 ele 6 meter beam, and the 2 meter vertical. Added a DX-88 vertical and about 5,000 feet of radials to the backyard. Also have a 40/30/17/12 meter fan dipole up at 35 feet and just recently (April 2012) put up an 80 meter dipole.

I retired in December 2012, and have set the station up to enable us to work remotely from anywhere in the world. It makes staying on top of the DXpeditions very easy now. I am able to control the K3, KAT500, KPA500 and Green Heron rotor control, so it is almost like sitting in the shack back in Ohio!

My XYL, Claire, earned her Tech class (KD8CMB) in April 2010 and will soon be going for her General class. Claire took and aced the General Class test on June 4, 2011. She's now onto the Extra Class study guide.

If you hear either of us on the air, please call.

DX Code Of Conduct

  • I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
  • I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
  • I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
  • I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
  • I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
  • I will always send my full call sign.
  • I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
  • When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
  • I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
  • I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
