Licensed since 1991. Member, ARRL. Member, Rolla Regional Amateur Radio Society. ARRL-VEC Volunteer Examiner. Occupation: Commercial Printer/Expediter for over 40 years, presently employed at Scotts - The Printing Company in Rolla since 1990.

The F-150 mobile operation features an Icom 7100 typically running 80 watts on HF to a Tarheel Model 100A-HP screwdriver. The Tarheel replaces the pictured High Sierra HS1500 that was damaged in a traffic accident in December 2015 after 15 years of service.

At home, I have an Icom IC-9100 driving an Ameritron AL-80B through an MFJ 989D tuner, out to a 160M full wave loop, 536 feet long, 35 feet high at the corners, fed with 225 feet of ladder line to the tuner.  On 2 meters and 440, the antenna is a Cubex/Tennadyne Scorpion 88.

Favorite Bands are 17, 12, and 10 meters, but can be heard checking into the BC Net mornings from the mobile on 3973, the 1865 Tomato Net early mornings, and once in a while on MIDCARS and EASTCARS on 40 meters. I especially like operating HF D-Star from the base or mobile station.


The main operating position at KFØXQ.



The Icom IC-7100 control head installation in the F-150.



The feed point at the northwest corner of my 160M loop skywire.



If it weren't for the ladder line running from tree to tree, you would never know there was a station inside the house.



A remote disconnect in the event of severe weather.
