Hello my name is Clint.

Welcome to my QRZ page.

Keep scrolling down. I have tried to post some interesting items.

What's a QRZ page without pictures?

Digital modes = Some like cream and sugar in there coffee and some don't. They are both legal.

Check out one of my other hobbies near the bottom of my page.

I upload my HF log to LoTW daily....

6 meters Qs. 2 to 3 times per month.

QCWA Chapter 202 Member #37060

More info about me is below the antenna pics.

I don't DX by operating remote "RHR"and never will.

My DX Elmers would slap me silly if I did.

I work hard building and improving my antenna's,

so I take pride in working long haul DX from my QTH.

My lastest antenna project.

KC2TX design. http://www.qsl.net/kc2tx/

It's a 160/80 meters receiving loop.

I run a Ameco PT-3 Preamp with it.

Most hams that try this receive antenna will say it doesn't work.

This loop is more of a QRN nuller than a directional receive antenna.

You must point the loop in the direction of the least QRN.

For me it's 25 degrees most of the time. Don't ask why.

I can move the loop 5 to 10 degrees in either direction

and lose the weak station I'm trying to copy.

It doesn't work as well on 80 meters as it does on 160.

I owe credit to many new ones on 160 to this loop.

Since July 1st 2017 some of the new one's I've worked on 160 are

5T5OK, 3C0L, H40GC, VK9MA, J5T, LZ9W,

VP8EME, C93PA, HL5IVL and TZ4AM.

 

This is my home brew G0KSC design LFA 6M Yagi.

The day I put it up my first two QSO's were with YV6CR and YV5IUA on June 11, 2016.

 

The boom to mast bracket and boom support bracket I made myself.

 

 

This graph is with the home brew G0KSC LFA 6M Yagi on the tower.

Results of a down draft on June 4th 1993.

That's what was left of a Mosley TA-34M WARC

and a 5 element Finco 6 meter Yagi on the ground.

Base of a 30 meters raised vertical I installed October 30th 2016

 

 

Welcome from Clint.

 

I've been a Ham since 1990. Ex Calls KC4QIP-N4ZKC-W4PY-KN4UI.

My main interest is HF DX (337 confirmed with deletes), 6 meters DX (78 confirmed)

in the summer months, Top Band (171 confirmed)

in the winter months and building antennas.

In the 2016/2017 winter season I tried to work 100 countries on 160 meters,

just to see if I could and I did it with Mike SV9CVY being #100 for the winter

and #160 for a ATNO on 160 meters. The other 99 were CW or SSB.

Mike was also my first DX QSO on JT65 on any band.

 

I have 5 Band DXCC #3306 from back in 1993 with the call KN4UI.

My main goal in Ham Radio is to be a better CW operator (The Old Dog effect is a problem).

Yea I know I'm fumble fingers sloppy at CW, but I refuse to quit trying to improve.

I've been absent from DXing and CW for 18 years until April 2016.

HF Station is a IC-7610 feeding a Alpha 8410 and IC-7300 for 6 meters

into a Yaesu FL-2100 converted to a GI-7B.

Antenna's are a Mosley TA-34M WARC for 10,12,15,17 and 20 meters. It's been playing well since 1993.

Homebrew LFA 6 elements on 6 Meters. My pride and joy.....But I have bigger plans. TBC.

HB 1/4 wave raised wire vertical on 30 Meters. Works very well. Simple to build and put up.

HB 1/4 wave Inverted V on 40 Meters - My weakest antenna. I'm planning a ground mounted vertical now.

Two HB 1/4 wave Slopers on 80 Meters at 40 feet/12.1 meters off my tower. One to the NE and the other to the SW. I can't say enough good about these Slopers. They put out smoke on 80 meters CW. They work well on 30 meters also. I even use them to RX weak one's on 40 meters. The directivity pays off well....Oh yea, I use them on 60 Meters also.

HB 1/4 wave 160 meters Inverted V at 80 feet/24.4 meters in a Popular tree.

Married to my Wife Debbie since 1975.

One son J.W. (Dub) age 34.

Retired 1/4/16 from the Georgia Pacific Paper Mill in Big Island, Va. after 43 years.

NRA member since 1976.

Moose Lodge #1897 member since 1974.

Member of the Big Island Hunting and Fishing Club since 1976.

Our dog Brandi born April 1, 2011

In December you can find me bear hunting with dogs in Virginia.

I've been doing it for 51 years and I've taken 12....I think.

I've kinda lost count. I've let many go by that were either too small,

had cubs or somebody else's dogs were running it.

I've never killed a big one. The one in the pic was 207 pounds.

I use a Ruger M77RL 30-06 with 165 grs Nosler SP PT

with 55.5 grs of IMR-4831 pushing it.

 

 

Mosley TA-34M WARC and homebrew LFA 50 Mhz 6 Elements Yagi.

 

 

Passions and interest are Family - Leather working - Guns - Hunting -

Fishing - Ham Radio - Harley Motorcycles - NASCAR.

This is my Wife and I riding "The Tail of the Dragon" near Robbinsville, NC.

It has 318 curves in 11 miles or 17.7 kilometers.

 

One of my hobbies is leather working.

Thanks to W4COX for getting me started.

I do everything by hand, even the stitching.

I'm just good enough that it would turn into a full time job if I let it happen,

but it's a hobby that I like to do in the winter.

These two holsters I made for my long time friend WB4CQ.

Holster for a S&W M&P Shield.

 

Sometimes you have to make your own form. This one is for a Ruger 22/45.

Want to learn how to do leather working.

Get on YouTube and look up leather working, leather stamping,

Tandy Leather, Bruce Cheaney, Ian Atkinson or Don Gonzales.

 

Thanks for stopping by.
