Hi from Arkansas and my "Closet Shack"!

I go by Mike and I am a retired Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) employee having spent a career in the air traffic control profession. I've worked in a number of locations but the major ones are Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport and Houston Intercontinental Airport (Tower and Radar Approach Control at both locations). After retirement I worked as a contract instructor for the University of Oklahoma teaching radar procedures to new radar air traffic controllers at the FAA Academy.

I was initially licensed in 1960 at age 13 in Arlington, Texas as KN5EHM and within the year K5EHM.  I have a rather small but adequate shack. My equipment consists of a Yaesu FT-2000 transceiver and when conditions warrant, an Al-80B amplifier.The paddle is a Begali Simplex and the straight key a Navy Flame Proof. The rigs on the upper shelf are from my early ham days in 1960 and '61 and consist of a Heathkit DX-40 transmitter (75 watts input) and a Hallicrafters SX-110 receiver.

Due to my location on one of the golf courses, my antenna is somewhat restricted and as a result, I use a Cushcraft R-8 vertical mounted 8 feet above the ground and integrated among the trees. The 80 mtr antenna is a pair of Hustler RM-80-S resonators, in a dipole configuration, mounted in the attic. I enjoy Morse Code and, therefore, most of my activities are on cw. Normally I operate on 40, 30, 20 and 17 meters.

QSL information: LoTW / Direct. For US; SASE not necessary. For DX; Direct, NO BUREAU.

My wife and I live in Hot Springs Village (Saline County), a retirement community about 50 miles (80 km) west of Little Rock, Arkansas (the state capital). It is the largest gated community in the USA at over 25K acres. There are several golf courses available and we live adjacent to one. I also enjoy riding my 1993 Goldwing motorcycle throughout Arkansas and the surrounding states. If you would care to see our area, the following website will allow you to take a brief tour: www.hsvpoa.org

Note: Due to scammers, I do not buy nor sell used ham gear in QRZ / QTH. Com / Ebay or any other ham publication.

Thanks for your time, HAVE FUN!

73, Mike
