I first became acquainted with amateur radio when I was 13 years old. The code requirement and girls prevented me from getting my license as a teenager. I finally got my technician license July of 2004. I completed my 5 word per min code test the last day of October 2007 and was awarded a General License November the 14th 2007, over fifty years after I first started. The code requirement was eliminated in Novmber of 2007. I apologize to amateur radio community for delaying the abolition of the code requirement for fifty years. I will try to do better! I earned my Extra Class on 2-3-13!

Since obtaining my General License I have been very active on HF. I completed my WAS Triple Play, number 220, in March of 2009 and have been working on DXCC since then. I changed my call sign from KI4GKS to N4EDT October 27, 2009 and continue to pursue the DXCC.  I have finished the year of 2013 with over 200 countries confirmed, DXCC on Phone, RTTY, CW, 20m, 17m, 15m, and 10m.  I am looking forward to adding some new countries and bands to my DXCC list during the coming year.  I currently have worked 233 countries all bands and all modes.  I have DXCC on Phone, RTTY, CW, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, and 10m.  I am now working on getting DXCC on 80m and 40m  

I am very active at the state level of ARRL working as the Public Information Coordinator. That job for the moment is a recruiting effort. It is my goal to build a two or three layer PIO structure that starts at the local level and build regionally to the state level. The major effort will be to assist the PIO to become more effective and efficient.  I served a year on the ARRL Public Relations Committee.  

The mainstay of my station is a Flex 6500 using the Maestro interface.  The pictures currently shown on the page are of the T-11 and a 30 Universal Aluminum Tower while they were in place at my old address.  At my current address, I am currently using a DX Engineering 43 foot vertical.  The tower has been extended to 40 feet and I have completed the cable installation to the tower.  1 run of 1/2 hardline, a run of RG-213, and the Rotor control cable.  The tower is 150 feet behind the house and the cable is run in buried conduit. The Tennadyne T-11 is back on the air.

I am an active member of the Rotarians of Amateur Radio, an international fellowship of Rotarian hams.  http://www.ifroar.org/members.html    I currently am the President-Elect for the ROAR organization and will take office at the 2018 Rotary International convention.

The Tower has been raised ten feet in the new location and the beam is about a foot higher on the mast.   The Stacked Halos are for 2 meter SSB use. The other antenna located at the same level as the halo is an SBB 7 dual band, 2 meter/7 cm antenna for repeater use.





This is a day time shot of my Tennadyne T-11 log periodic. It covers 20 meters through 6 meters and I have been able to work over 180 countries as of March of 2012.

I often serve as the net control for the ROAR (Rotarians Of Amateur Radio) Net.   http://www.ifroar.org
