So you're probably here because I've reestablished my station.  If you contacted me via digital modes then I'm probably using my Elecraft KX2 at 5w into a 130-foot EFHW at 35-feet.  If cw or voice, I'm probably running my Icom IC-706MKIIG at 30W into either the aforementioned EFHW or, if I'm feeling bold, my GAP Titan DX.  (The 30W thing is a limitation because I'm overwhelming my home entertainment system and have not yet found myself the free weekend to fix it.)

If you're interested in anceint history, I started this gig as an SWL with a ham father, W1OUU, who passed away when I was 12.  I played SWL games (logging my first Antarctic contact!) until licensed in 1984 as Novice KB6HCN, then upgraded to Tech the next year.  Sat there for ages until I passed the General and Extra tests in 2003, and then took vanity call W6DLK (yeah, my initials) later in 2003.

As of 2017 I have been revigorated into the hobby.  I've just started digital modes (Nov 2017) though have SSB contacts dating until early this year.  Also interested in SOTA but I have yet to activate any summits.  Want get my CW speed up so I can use it for SOTA.  Attended CW Academy in 2017.

Fixed station includes an Elecraft KX2 and Icom IC-706MKIIG feeding a 130-foot long EFHW with peak at 35' though the far end is only 10' above ground.  Also have a GAP Titan DX that I have only recently put back into operation.

My portable station includes a Mountain Topper MTR5b and the Elecraft KX2, plus a 30' EFHW using the Hawaii EARC matchbox. 

I also have a web page at http://kensiski.org/ that is constantly under construction.
