Hello, I have been a Ham since 1989 and upgraded to Extra in 2014

My first HF setup (fall of 2014) was the following system below:

When I got the radio it didn't work, so I spent as much time fixing it as I did talking on it. After a while it was back to good working order. I was able to get 40+ states and work the world.

Because I live in a HOA attached condo, I figured getting the missing states would not be possable without running some digital modes. So I upgrade my radio to the newer station below:

Yaesu FTdx1200 attached to a G5RVjr running North / South in attic of condo (40 and 20 meters)

Dipole running East / West in attic of condo (17, and 15 meters)

Dipole running North / South in attic of condo (10 meters)

jPole running North / South then turning East to West in attic of condo (80 meters)


Sure enough shortly after getting into HF digital I was able to complete my WAS mixed (6/29/2015)

Grid Squared Award (7/12/2015)

WAC award (8/1/2015)


It got cold out so I added a heater :)


Newest Upgrade from the Yaesu FTdx1200 to a Elecraft K3s and P3

You can find me hanging out on a Facebook group "100 Watts and a Wire" almost all the time.
