I was first licensed as WN5QPT in 1975. When I made Tech class, my call changed to WB5QPT. In 1977 we were transfered to Guam and became KH2BN then AH2BQ upon upgrading to Advanced class. With Texas being home, decided to just get the 5 call along with Kathy, KB5QWS, XYL of 43 yrs.

My operating was dormant for quite a few years but am back on the air checking in regularily to the YL net, MM net and CW where ever. CW is my passion along with the excitement of QRP. On the air QRP Portable with a KX3 and CHA-F Loop whenever possible.

Retired from the U.S. Navy in 1991 as Senior Chief Petty Officer. Spent 7 1/2 yrs with Fleet Reconnissance Squadron One, Guam. Served on the USS Coral Sea, USS Nimitz, USS Carl Vinson and USS Midway.  Prior to that, Special Duty Aircrewman, Flight Engineer with Patrol Squadron 47 and Flight Engineer Instructor with VP31. Survived Recruiting Duty in St Louis, Mo and was lucky to have a last duty station in Key West, Fl. 

My favorite portable antenna is the Chamelon F Loop with the motorized tuner and rotator. What a great way to get on the air for a short or long period of time. Band hopping is a piece of cake.

My favorite portable antenna is the Another of my favorite antennas is a 9:1 unun with a 30' length of wire, vertical on a Spiderbeam 40' push up mast. Instructions are available at the link below. This antenna can be built for as little as $6.00 and housed in two PVC caps.

This is a great emergency antenna or a throw over a limb for quick operation. With the described push up mast, its a great multi band antenna for RV'ers. I have worked Hawaii on 10 watts in addition to across the U.S. The 25' length of coax provides a counter poise however an additional wire would be helpful. Don't forget a ground if possible.
