Retired Satellite Communication Systems Engineer. Contesting and chasing DX (355 / 338) are my top priorities. My latest interest is 6 Meters. Currently at 78/75 countries. Sadly this cycle yielded very few DX contacts on 6.  Were it not for some great Es openings it would be a total bust! Currently playing with the JT & MSK modes. PSK reporter is a great beacon network! We no longer need the nagging vanity beacons that pollute the lower end of 6 meters.

The station is in a constant state of flux. Currently running a Flex 5000A, and Alpha 87a I have a modified SB220 for 6 meters that has never been hooked up. All contacts have been at 100 watts or less.  From the photos you can see there is no shortage of radios.

The antenna system is being updated. The HDX 589 tower is up and the DB-18E and 6M7JHV are on it! Hopefully before contest season I will add a SteppIR 4 element on a rotating ring at 90 ft, and quarter wave sloper for 160 and 80 meters. The new system will allow SO2R with independently steered antennas on each radio. The SteppIR antennas are reconfigurable monobanders that operate from 40 - 6 continuously.

I was the 2012 president of The Southern California DX Club (SCDXC). If you are in town and would like to attend a meeting please go to: www.scdxc.org. Look at the calendar for the meeting time and subject. You can download the latest newsletter from the site. It is free to all who are interested in DXing as is the archive of newsletters. SCDXC and their sister organizaiton The Northern California DX Club (NCDXC) alternate years hosting the International DX Convention in Visalia. This is a large convention that is a multi-club effort (SDDXC, CADXA, UDXA, & DXXE). Hams from all over the world attend and it is a great weekend getaway from work and the concerns at home during that long stretch without a holiday between New Years and Memorial Day. Hang out with fellow DXers, tell tales, attend meetings and events and come home refreshed.
