I have been a ham since 1981. I got interested in radio because my father, K8CUY (SK) and Uncles W8NMY(SK) and W8PKT(SK) introduced me to the hobby. My Mother is a ham, Ruth N8WNQ. Three of my brothers Tom N8VPF, Bruce KB8TTF, and Jim KG8GE and 2 of their wives Betty N8UDT, and Lisa KB8PVP are hams along with my wife Bonnie N8BEK. 

 I Hope to meet you on HF soon. My home station is a Yaesu FT-1000D, a HyGain 14 AVQ Vertical ground mounted with 16 radials, and  Homemade dipoles for 40, 80 and 160/30 up about 30 feet. My other rigs are my first rig a Kenwood TS830S, a Yaesu FTDX 570, and a Yaesu FT-890.

I also have a 48' Universal aluminum tower that has a Mosley TA-33 on it with the WARC rotatable dipole.

​I like to work Field day and phone Sweepstakes, chase DX and work JT 65 and JT 9, which I have recently discovered. It is a great mode that one can use to make contacts using pretty much any antenna, while relaxing and watching tv. This way I can play with my radio while still keeping warm upstairs in the winter.

11/07/2015 - I finally got my tower and Mosley TA-33 HF Beam with the WARC kit up today. I am really happy with the way it is working. Have been working on getting all the materials gathered up all summer. Could not pour the concrete until August because the weather was so wet the hole I dug in April was full of water all summer. Hope to catch you on the air now with the new hardware.

I like to ride my bike in the summer. Usually about 20-25 Miles a day, weather permitting.

I upload all contacts to LOTW, eQSL and QRZ.COM.



If we are on JT 65 or JT 9 and you don't send a 73 or some kind of notification that you have received my last transmission at the end of the QSO, I will not count it as a completed QSO. I need to know you got my 73. I use JT Alert also so you can send text via that program (F5)  if you have a question.

Won't be long now till the Beam goes up.









My Other Hobby a 1954 Century Resorter. This was in 2002. I hope to get this project finished in 2017. I sanded it in 2003 and it has been under a cover ever since. Life got in the way.
