I am currently active on 80M thru 2M SSB/FT8/JT65/JT9/MSK144 and some CW once in awhile when really needed. I try to upload my logs to LoTW and Club Log nightly. Do not worry about if you don't see it right away because I might be busy and have not got to an upload, but I do get to it within the week. I also QSL the old fashion way of QSL cards if you really really really need one. I would rather confirm our QSO on LoTW. Hope to see you on the bands or on down the log.

Current station:
HF:
Icom 7300 with an AL-811 amp
80M/40M 33 foot homebrew vertical. I base load it for 80M. 60 radials.
20-10M Cushcraft R-5
VHF:
Just getting the VHF station back on air. It is a work in progress.
6M Icom 7300 M2 6M5 at 10 feet
2M Icom 7300/transverter M2 loop at 15 feet
2M/70cm FM IC W32A HT I do not operate much on FM, but I have it just in case.

History:
It all started in 1984 with the call of KA2WKA. I had that call for a long time until the vanity gate for me opened. I changed the call to K2WKA at that time. I thought I would not change my call again, but I did say if I became an Extra class I would think about it. Well I did upgrade to Extra and did change my call in 2003 to the current call of N2XK.

When first licensed I got hooked on VHF/UHF and built a pretty good station at my old location. The profile picture shows the VHF/UHF stack at the old location. There were 2X4218XL boomers stacked for max gain on 144, 22LBX on 220, FO-25 on 432, 33 el loop yagi on 903, and a 45 el loop yagi on 1296. Also on a 25 foot pole was a 6M5 on 6M. I did enjoy working all the VHF/UHF contests. Once I upgraded to General I started working more HF. I wanted to work DX on 80M so I upgraded to Extra and got hooked on 80M DX. At the old location I operated 1.8MHz to 1.2GHz.

I have since moved. I went from about an acre to a postage stamp lot. That is the reason for the verticals. I just do not have the room now. There is no way for me to be on 160m right now or any higher then 2m. I am now only 20 feet above sea level and look into some higher ground around me. I am slowly getting the station back into shape. I sold a lot of stuff because of the move and I am piecing a station back together. I am happy that I am still able to be on the radio again. I now enjoy 80, 40, 6, and 2 the most, but I do work 80 thru 2m now.

n2xk vhf/uhf station
Old VHF/UHF Station 50Mhz thru 1.2Ghz at my old location.

n2xk vhf/uhf tower
Me on tower changing out a N connector a couple of hours before a January VHF/UHF contest. Yes, it was very cold at the top of the tower but it had to be done.

I still do run mobile sometimes. I have operated 2M ssb mobile since 1986 and HF in the last 16 years or so. If I sign N2XK/mobile, I am not setup to use LOTW. You can see my N2XK/M QRZ page at the following link:
