My Dad, N5VFX introduced me to HAM Radio when I was 10 years old.  I received my Novice license in 1995 as KC5PKX. Grown now, I upgraded to General Class on Field Day, June 2016 and Extra July 2017 and now use my late Uncle Fred's callsign. Fred provided a major influence in radio for my Dad and myself.  I operate a Yaesu FT-991 as my primary HF rig and a Yaesu FT-891 for portable operation HF and a FT-5100 on VHF/UHF and still enjoy regular QSO's with my Dad.

I enjoy operating from remote locations with my Yeasu FT-891 powered by a 4S lithium polymer battery, and a MFJ-2286 Big Stick.  It is satisfying to be in the wilderness making contacts all over the world.

A recent move has shifted my QTH within the same grid square but from the space of a ranch to an upstairs apartment.  This has notably compromised my antennas though I am still making contacts everyday.  It is a fun challenge "Making It Work".  I am operating a 20 meter dipole made from 26ga stealth wire tacked around the ceiling to great success.  For 40 meters I am operating my MFJ-2286 vertical partially collapsed tripod mounted on my patio, also to fairly good success!  I hope to catch you on the air, and if you hear me, let me know that I'm still getting out from my apartment!
