Name is George but I prefer my nickname of "OB",  which is short for O'Brien.

The QTH is Pace,  Florida, about 30 miles east of Pensacola. (Thats in the extreme NW corner of Florida.)  Grid is EM60ko

Got started in Ham radio in 1952, was KN6BLU.  then got my general and became K6BLU.  Joined the Marine Corp reserve in 1954 then changed over into the Navy in 1955.   While stationed in Norfolk Va. I hanged my call over to W4HXJ and then operated in Naval aircraft as W4HXJ/AM, all over the world.  Had to let my call lapse in 1965 due to Naval and family commitments.  So now after many years, I'm back on the air as W4HXJ.

Radios are a Flex-6500 SDR which is connected to an Imac and running Maclogger DX.  This radio can be switched between either a 4 elment cubical quad for 10, 12, 15, 17 and 20 meters about 75 feet up, or a 535 ft all band horiz loop about 65 ft up stretched between 4 tall pine trees or a homemade 7 element 6 meter cubical quad or a 6 meter vertica.6_meter_quad.jpg

I enjoy hunting DX and am really enjoying the new SDR radios.  Its a whole new concept to me.  Being able to stretch out the spectrum and see the pileups really helps.  Been back on CW and getting back into the swing of new (to me) CW operating procedures.  Big difference from what I was used to in the Navy.

Been really enjoying the new FT8 mode on all the bands.

Thanks for looking.  See ya on the air.
