I am an avid DX'er, and spend the majority of my "shack" time chasing dxpeditions and filling band slots with needed countries.  I work a host of bands and modes, and have earned the ARRL 5BDXCC award with endorsements for 12, 17, and 30 meters. I also have Phone, CW, and Digital DXCC certificates,  CQ's WAZ award, a 6 meter VUCC award, and the DXCC Challenge award with over 1850 confirmed band points.


Age 66 - Retired - Industrial Electronics Technician

Licensed in 1981 ( general in '82, extra in '84 )

University of Toledo 1969-1972

US Navy 1973-1979 (Avionics – VQ4 Pax River, Md. / VR24 Sigonella, Sicily )


Station Equipment

Transceivers: Kenwood TS-530SP, Icom IC-706

       The 530 stays tuned up on 20 phone most of the time, and the 706 handles everything else, including CW and the digital

        modes, using HRD/DM780 and WSJT software.  All of my WARC band, 160, and 6 meter contacts have been 100 watts

        or less with the Icom. (30 countries confirmed on 160, and 23 on 6 meters)

Amplifier: Heathkit SB-220

       I also have a Heathkit SB-200, and they change places as the primary station amplifier on a regular basis.

Antennas: Mosley Classic 33 triband yagi @ 35 feet

                Inverted V's for, 80, 40, 30, 17, and 12 meters

                Inverted L for 160 meters

                ...and a 3 Element homebrew yagi for 6 meters @ 40 feet





Most  recently I have been playing with some 2 meter SSB .... It's been available on the IC-706 that I've had for years, but never gave it much thought until I built a pair of 4 element yagi's to try on FM.  The stacked yagi's were just marginally better than the collinear vertical I have for local repeaters and simplex work, so I decided to rotate them horizontally to see if there was any sideband activity.  I have made a hand full of contacts so far with my 10 watts, as far out as 260 miles, so I think I have found an interesting new activity for the coming winter months.
