I am currently active on 160M through 2M SSB/FT8/JT65/JT9/MSK144, a little AM, and some CW once in awhile when really needed. I try to upload my logs to LoTW, Club Log, and QRZ nightly, but might have gotten busy and didn't get to an upload. Don't worry they will be uploaded in the next batch. I also QSL the old fashion way of QSL cards if you really need one. US hams please include a SASE. I would rather confirm our QSO on LoTW. I do not use eQSL any longer and do not use the bureau. Hope to see you on the bands or on down the log.

Couple of things about how I operate FT8. When I call CQ I will answer any station anywhere. I have it set to answer Call 1st so that means the first decoded station will be answered first. I also do not mind being called split as most of the time this works best if more then one station is calling me on my frequency. I will send RRR three times if no answer to that I will log the contact and move on. Also when you send 73, I will send 73 once and consider the QSO complete and logged and go back to calling CQ again. If I am using RR73 once I send that the QSO is logged.

Current station:
Icom 7300 with an AL-811 amp
80M/40M 33 foot homebrew vertical base loaded on 80M. 60 radials.
20-10M Cushcraft R-5
160-10M T2FD backup antenna and 160M/80M/60M/30M FT8
Just getting the VHF station back on the air. It is a work in progress.
6M Icom 7300 M2 6M5
2M Icom 7300/transverter M2 loop
2M/70cm FM IC W32A HT
I do not operate much on FM, but I have it just in case.

n2xk current station

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 and have several awards. Once I upgraded to General I started working some 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.

Old VHF/UHF Station 50Mhz thru 1.2Ghz at my old location.

I have since moved. I went from about an acre to a postage stamp lot. That is the reason for the verticals. As of March 5, 2018 I am back on 160-2, but not in a great way. I put up my T2FD once again to gain 160/80/60/30 so that I could work FT8 on those bands and have a backup to my R-5. The T2FD is really setup as a NVIS/cloud burner antenna as I can not get the height I really need. It isn't perfect but it works ok to at least be on the bands. I also can not really go any higher then 2M right now because I am only 20 feet above sea level and look into some higher ground around me. The electric runs the back of the property and comes to the house in the back as well. That leaves me with a little bit of yard to play in. Plus I don't think the neighbours, township, or maybe even the wife wouldn't like the idea of a tower in the front yard. 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 160M through 2M.

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.
