KL7N and my son stacking the 6m beam above the MA5B on a beautiful July afternoon.  note the windom off the side of the tower


***QSL INFO*** Bureau is good, Ur paper card pse !!   Direct ok (sase appreciated),  I QSL 100% to all New Contacts via the Bureau, I also use LOTW & EQsl, and ask you to please follow it up with a "real qsl"!  I enjoy collecting QSL's !!

Shack has a Kenwood TS-450S barefoot,  a Kenwood TS-60 6m rig,  a Cushcraft MA5B beam at 40 feet,  a Cushcraft A50-5S 5 element 6m beam at 45 feet,  a Carolina Windom off the tower at 50', and an MFJ-1798 80-2m vertical used for 2m.


---UPDATE----- Sept. 2, 2012, I had quad heart by-pass surgery. A Huge Thank You to my Dr. Bill Curtis. It must've worked cause I'm still ticking, HI. But as a part of the 12 hour surgery, a nerve on the right side of my neck was pinched, causing me to lose the function of my right arm. And, Yes, I am/was right handed. It took about 2 years for it to come back.   A Huge Thank You to my friend Scott Diseth, KL7N, who, with help, raised my 50' tower I'd bought prior to, and also put my MA5B beam on it, and hung a Carolina Windom in the trees, so I could be back on the ham Bands !! So, if the QSL cards I send look like they'd been written by a fifth grader, that's me, left-handed, hi. Agn Thanks to KL7N !!! (all typed left handed).


Thanks for stopping by. I started out "AM & SW DX'ing" growing up in small farmtown in southeastern South Dakota, tuning in stations on an old Realistic "all-band" transistor radio.

My "Elmer" was Melvin Johnson SK, W0WUU, Alcester, SD. who would invite me to his ham shack. I was hooked !!!!! When I was a Senior in High School, I passed the test for my "3rd Class Radiotelephone License with Endorsement" & I found a job out of High School in 1970 at KVDB 1090 AM in Sioux Center, Iowa, then on to KISD 1230 AM in Sioux Falls SD.

In 1972, I went to KNOM 780 AM in Nome & that's how I made it to Alaska, Seemed everyone at KNOM was a Ham! More "Elmers" !

I Received my Novice ticket Sept. 8, 1978 with the call WL7ADG & started with an HW-8 to an all-band trap dipole! Earned my General ticket in 1979, kept WL7ADG & in the early 1980's, when the FCC offered 2x2's to KL7's I received my current call of KL7OH.

I operated from Sarichef Island (IOTA NA-152), Shishmaref Alaska with the call WL7ADG from Sept. 8, 1978 to October 26, 1978, and from June 10, 1979 to April 9, 1981, and with the call KL7OH from June 10, 1983 thru February 24, 1999. Sure had fun working the Pileups! I think that's how I got WAS & DXCC taken care of, hi. If we worked and you did not get a qsl, I still have a few left SASE appreciated !

I am now in the foothills 4 miles north of downtown Fairbanks.

Gud dx to you es hope to meet you on the bands

"Charlie" KL7OH
