Ham Member Lookups: 7756


In 2005, we moved to this small community on the northern tip of the beautiful Olympic Peninsula to escape crazy Colorado weather and retire in a mild, maritime climate. Sequim (pronounced "skwim") is located about 25 miles southeast of Victoria, B.C. across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, 75 miles east of the Pacific Ocean, and 50 miles northwest of Seattle. Needless to say, this is a great location for Japan, Asia and Pacific communications.

Operating Station: Icom 756 Pro III---Ameritron AL-80B amplifier---Heil iCM microphone and Proset headset

Antennas: homebrew 20m Moxon wire beam (removed) and a homebrew 80m wire vertical in a pine tree

The Moxon, when installed at only 8 meters (3/8 wavelength), had an amazing F/B ratio of over 40 dB! Combine that with a very electrically quiet QTH and "good ground" (wetlands with high iron content soil), and I could work most DX stations that I heard on 20m.  Now, not so much. 

Hope to work you soon! 73 . . . Ron
