I was licensed in around 1971 or 1972 as a Technician. I lost my origional license in a move and don't know the exect date. The call was WB4YWI and I held it to March 9, 1998 when I upgraded to Advanced. I then changed my call to KU4PT. One year later in July 1999 I upgraded to Extra.

I don't origionate very many QSL cards, but I do send a card back from any that I receive. NO sase is needed or wanted.

The picture on my card is the antenna system. It is a 60 foot tower. At the top is a M2 432 antenna. Then a M2 9 element 144 antenna. The next one is a 5 element 6 meter beam that I built from plans on the internet. The bottom antenna is a TH-3. Not shown is a 6 meter vertical dipole at 35 feet. There is also a home built Carolina Windom about 125 feet long at 50 feet for the low bands and at right angles to that is an 80 meter dipole. Near the house are a couple of dual band 144/440 verticals for the local repeaters.

I mainly worked two meter SSB for a number of years. Also worked some RTTY on a 220 MHz repeater. I have done most of the work on a local 2 meter repeater on 146.73 for about the last 25 years. This repeater was started many years ago by K4GHR who was AA4R the last time I saw him. It was W4EXU (local club call)at one time , WR4AAA, and now it has my call on it.

The main low band is an Icom 746 PRO and a Drake L4B amp. The two meter SSB is a Yeasu FT-221r with a home made preamp driving one of the FAA amps that runs around 400 to 500 watts on ssb.

The ST-6 demodulator is for RTTY that is hooked into an old Teletype Model 19 printer just to the left of the desk.

There is a Yeasu 790Rll for 432 with a ARR preamp and 100 watt amp.

The power supply is an Astron 50 amp supply that powers most of the equipmnet on the desk.

 

I retired in 2012.  I worked as an electrician and instrument technician at a large plant that made polyester material.  We had 3 main products.  One went out looking like a bale of cotton, another was like a long string wound on a cylinder for making tire cord, and another was chips that were about 1/8 of an inch square and 1/4 of an inch long that was mainly sold to make into the plastic drink bottles.
