Hello - Thanks for the QSO.

QSL - LOTW Good - QSL - Direct OK - QSL - Bureau OK - try to confirm all cards sent to me.

Now I can use LOTW, tnx to my good friend Mike WB9DLC.

I have been around the ham bands since Dec. 1953.

Late 2000 moved into a Villa, in Decatur, IN, sold my amp, and had lots of fun with low power CW and very modest antennas.

November 2009 moved just outside Bluffton, IN , where once again can put up ham antennas. First before winter installed a Zero-Five 10-40 meter ground plane.

July 2010, with lots of good help from my ham friends put up a Hex Beam by K4KIO on a 40 ft Universal aluminum tower, with a G450A rotor, in August 2010 added 80 & 40 meter double bazooka antennas.

In October 2010 have a new radio, TS-590 Kenwood to go with a AL-80A Ameritron amp and a AT2K Palstar tuner. Work a lot of CW using the N0SA single lever paddle, the mic is a Heil Gold Line with the HC-5.

May 2012 installed a Zero Five 43 ft Vertical , looking for increased 80 meter DX this fall, sold the 10-40 GP to a friend..

July 2013 purchased a MFJ-2286 porrtable "Big Stick" vertical antenna to use with my outdoor operations.

Spring 2015 added NI4L 40 ft LW portable antenna for outdoor operations. Now can use vertical or long wire as I choose.

Spring 2015 added a K-2 Elecraft  for my back up rig and back porch rig in nice weather. It has the auto tuner and all need for outdoor operation , so don,t need to drag out tuner, SWR, Power meter, it operates very nicely just add battery.

May 2015 took down my 80 & 40 Meter Double Bazooka antennas & replaced with a NI4L OCF Windom, eliminated a wire & couple of end poles much to my XYL delight.

My VHF/ UHF gear consists of a FT-8800 in the shack to a small 6 ele beam off the tower, also a VX3-R for cross band remote, and hamfests, plus a UV-3R+ plus a UV-B5, plus A VX6-R,  and a FT-1500M in my car.

July 2016 Sold my K2, only because only used a few times ea year, and purchased a K1 + EF MTR LNR EF antenna for my outside QRP activities.

My Radio Callsign Plaque is a 4" x 8" etched mirror inserted into an LED lit 4" x 13" solid hardwood base custom made by Jim. He also made me a 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" cherry base to display my used 3-500Z tube with LEDS & a remote controller offering a choice of colors. Please see Jim's Engraving. www.jimsengraving.com

July 8, 2006 upgraded to the extra class license, and decided to retire my old call that had served me so well for the last 52+ years.

August 1, 2006, became N9ZI, it rolls off nicely on CW.

73, Terry

DX Code Of Conduct

I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
I will always send my full call sign.
I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
