I received my novice ticket in 1970 and was assigned the call WN8HZG. After upgrading to General my call became WB8HZG (of course).  Since then I've held KP4FCL, KE6EW, NX1T, GM0/NX1T, W8UR (a short excursion back to 8 land), NX1T (again) and now KY4F.

Since upgrading to Extra in 1990, I've become almost exclusively a CW op, although recently I've become interested in PSK-31, PSK-63 and RTTY. My primary interest is CW contesting. I enjoy operating from my home QTH even though its a rather minimal operation. I run a Yaesu FTdx5000 at 100 watts to a horizontal loop about 40 feet up.  I have an MFJ-927 match box located just above ground level at the antenna.  RG213 from the shack to the tuner, ladder line from the tuner to the loop.  For 160 I use a 30 foot tall flag pole with 100 feet of horizontal wire in an inverted L configuration.  Not the biggest signal on the band, but it gets out! 

I'm an active member of, and webmaster for the Alabama Contest Group.  Please visit our site at www.alabamacontestgroup.org!

My rig often sits idle during the summer months, but each fall as the air gets crisp and the contest season goes full swing, my iche to operate always returns.  Hope to see you in the pile ups.

73, KY4F

 

 


Thanks to everyone for all the QSO's over the years. Here's to many more to come!
