Say hello using the “ Web “ button above!


  Hello from Colfax, (USA) located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California. This is the land of tall Ponderosa Pines, large Oaks and Western Cedars.  Our area is very historic and is referred to as “Gold Country “since Gold was discovered in 1849 and started the “Gold Rush“ to California. Colfax is a small mountain railroad town of 1500 people with a rich history located in Placer County. Sacramento is 50 miles west and the Nevada state line 60 miles east along the Highway 80 corridor. During the winter months 80 has been closed due to heavy snow fall.

  My Wife and I live on four acres located between Colfax and Meadow Vista. The rolling hills make for a nice landscape along with a lake adjacent to our property. It is a bit of work but we much enjoy this land around us.   We do like to travel often and when possible. Often we trip back to Oklahoma for my family then onto Arkansas for my Wife’s.  We are retired and enjoying it.

  My station consists of a Yeasu FT 2000 receiver, replacing the FT920 pictured above, into a SB-200 Heathkit amp and tuned with a Palstar AT2K. Antennas consist of an off center fed dipole and a rotatable dipole at 40 ft. I also added a K4KIO Hex Beam up about 40 feet. Results have been good. There might be more changes in the future. My mobile rig is Icom 706 into a Tarheel screwdriver antenna. I usually have the radio on when traveling. You will find me on 20 and 40 meters most of the time on the road.  Occasionally work 12 and 15 meters when conditions allow and 2 meter sideband when I can.

I accept QSL’s by mail, I also upload to LOTW.

Thanks for your visit, hope to work you in the future.
