My QTH is located next to the old Maui WWVH transmitter site. EQUIPMENT: IC-7300...Hy_Gain AV-640 VERTICAL and a 40 meter dipole. Inverteed vee for 80 meters now working. It will be improved shortly with a few adjustments in location.

Amplifiers: Ameritron AL-572 and AL-811H


Some ancient history:

I was 13 years old in 1963 when I managed to pass the 13 word per minute Genaral Class License. Going to the FCC office to take the test was required. I thought I had failed the written test but my mother called the FCC and they told her I passed! I was using CW most of the time and at age 17 I took the Extra Class with the 20 wpm code test due to the loss of 25 kHz of the CW band caused by the Incentive Licensing. Being young then I still used a hand key in the FCC office. I doubt if  I would be able to do that now. My first call sign was KH6FRI. I then had to find a rig. The first one was the Hammarlund HQ-110 receiver and a Johnson Viking Valiant and I used AM and mostly CW. The first contact on AM was ZL2UD! I'll never forget that first contact. I lived in West Vancouver B.C. Canada for a few years my call was VE7CBB.  We moved to Santa Barbara in 1971 and my KH6FRI was changed to KH6AP. As the Vietnam War wound down the Red Cross had a Collins S-Line for sale. I then purchased the 32-S3 TX, 75-S3C RX and the 30-S1 Amplifier. Only paid $600 for everything. Can't beat that deal.

I moved back to Hawaii in year 2000.

Just replaced the old AV-640 that was up for 17 years. The new AV-640 has changed slightly and now comes with a very heavy base plate. Much needed with high trade winds and salt water.

Also a 40 meter dipole for local island contacts.

80 meter inverted also used on 60 meters. Waiting for another Spider Pole to get more height on one end off the antenna.  The center of the inverted vee uses a balun up in a palm tree that was only 7 inches high in 2001 and now the tree has grown to 45 feet so I have a natural tower that likes plenty of water. I have to watch out for coconuts falling on the wires. Hi Hi.


LoTW and QRZ.  LoTW will remain my main Log unless notified.

No paper cards at this time. In the future I will print some for those who prefer the real thing. I'm slowly deciding on a QSL card that right for Maui.
