I am in Pennington County, Minnesota: Grid EN18

I was licensed as WN9HFO in 1963. General class upgrade to WA9HFO in 1964. After upgrading to extra class in the 80's I held the call NZ0R until 1996 when I acquired the call W0RX. My Elmer was K9KGF, Doc, who began trying to teach me morse code when I was in 5th grade. He introduced me to DXing in the fabulous cycle of the late 1950's when a coat hanger on 10 meters, or even 6 meters, would let you work the world. Although he passed away in the early 1970's, I will always remember his persistence in getting me past the novice exam.

WA9HFO (now W0RX) in 1986. Had just rebuilt my Hallicrafters HT-40 and Heathkit HG-10 VFO. K9KGF and I had originally built the HT-40 in 1963. With the homebrew 811A above the HG-10 in the picture I could put out about 150 watts without flaming out.

 

The North tower - Winter 2013-14. Force 12 C31XR on top at 90 ft, Cushcraft Big Thunder 2 element 40 meter beam at 58 ft, 160 and 80 meter inverted Vees off top guy at 85 ft.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are the south towers.  In the middle is a 150 foot Rohn 45 tower with a KLM 5 element 20 meter monobander.  On the right is a 120 foot Rohn 55 tower with a KLM Linear Loaded 4 element 40 meter monobander.  My XYL and I put these up in the summers of 2015 and 2016.

 

 

I still get QSL requests for this operation! I operated the 1991-92 ARRL DX Contest from a farm near Warsaw, North Dakota.
