Thanks for looking in..

I am now chasing DX on all the bands 160M thru 2CM. Still a big 2M/6M grid chaser as welI and am EME capable 2M and 6M. I usually take a several trips up to Northern Michigan each year to activate grids for the VHF guys on 2M/6M. PSE SASE APPRECIATED for the /P trips, no SASE required for home QTH.   I frequently upload to LOTW, and ship buro each quarter.

The last couple E seasons have been great in EN83, so started something new ....  Lighthouse activation.  Here is N8OC/8 with first activation of LH USA-203 Crisp Pt on Lake Superior.   This LH is very remote, almost 20 miles to nearest pavement, 25 miles to electricity.

This is my QSL for the /M and /P trips - picture taken on a VHF trip to rare grid EN67 on Brockway Mtn Drive.


  • Rigs: K3, FT847, (2) FT857Ds.    At home: 8877 amps on 2M/6M, AL80B for HF.   Run 100w when remote.
  • Ant: HF-HB 1/4 wave vert for 80M, with switching network to add loading coil for 160M, and make it a 1/2 wave on 40M
  • Ant: HF-KT36XA, HB G/Ps 12/17M, HB30M delta loop, 40M vert dipole - enjoy building many others that are still put in/out of service
  • Ant: 6M-HB DK7ZB 7el, HB 9el Pop-Tenna (July 2014 with up to 45deg elevation), PAR Loops - 2M (currently down), 70cm 22el
  • Rigblasters, LNA Tech preamps and sequencer, Palstar tuner and meters, Ameritron and ICE antenna sw's, Winkeyer USB kit, etc, etc.

Other Interests: I live by (3) seasons - Hunting/Fishing, Snowmobiling / Skiing and Radio/Gardening. We have a 10 acre yard w/large pond and garden to take care of and I work as an Staff Engineer for a major automotive component supplier (I hope for a few more years).
