Thanks for checking up on me! Callsign is W5OE due to an upgrade to Extra Class and a lucky win in the vanity call competition. Can be found on D-Star reflector 4B or the local digital repeater here in McAllen, TX; ND5N. Usually monitoring D-Star while mobile on an Icom 880-H, and the local frequencies on the HT.
On the HF side, I am running a Kenwood TS 440 with a G5RV antenna at 40 feet. Assisting the Kenwood is a Clipperton L amplifier with a MFJ Versa Tuner. As an added bonus, I also run a Kenwood TS 60 when six decides to open up. Hope to make contact soon!
In October of 2016 I have added a new feature to my radio arsenal. I have gone HF mobile after a great trip to the Belton, TX hamfest and spending to much money! My truck is now equipped with an Icom 706 paired with a Tarheel model 300 antenna and a turbo tuner. Works better than I had expected and has rekindled the hobby and the fun of low power HF contacts.
I will be listening, 73.
