I was first licensed in 1980, with a novice call of KA8JUH. subsequent calls were N8DQS and KD8CP. I switched to KR8T in May 2008. Most of my ham activity is DXing and some contesting. QSL via LoTW and eQSL.

I'm involved with the IRA (Independent Repeater Association) which maintains a linked repeater system in Michigan. http://www.w8ira.org/

Home station consists of a Flex 5000A, TS-2000, Ameritron AL-1200 amp and a small collection of older equipment;  FT-736R , Kenwood TS-940AT, Kenwood 599D twins, Drake 4C twins, Collins KWM2A, Hammarlund HQ-ONE SEVENTY-A and a few others.

Antennas: 70cm at 116 ft, 2m at 108 ft, and HF (4 el SteppIR) at 100 ft. Wire antennas on 160m to 30m. Tower is shunt fed on 160m.

We had freezing rain in December 2013. Everything survived, but it wasn't looking good. Here's the SteppIR with about 3/4 inch of ice. It was several weeks before the ice melted and I could use the beam.

Amazing none of the wires came down.

Below is some of the ice as it melted and fell.
