I use my middle name as some do from my generation. It's "Mike". Probably a geezer thing laugh

Originally  WN8FBE (1969).

Retired Land Surveyor and Miami University alum. That's me in the photo as WA8IXI pounding a straight key at the Miami University ARC, 1970. State-of-the-art Drake rigs for that time from nearby Miamisburg, Ohio. Since then lost some hair at the top and the Issac Asimov style sideburns. Still have the same glasses though. update: recently a fellow ham visited this page and said that I looked like Clark Kent in the photo.  Maybe so. Today it is more like his boss at the Daily Planet, Perry White. Great Caesars Ghost!

Recently replaced the 30 year old FT-757 GX II with a TS-590SG, still running into an end-fed matchbox antenna up 8m in the attic, using an MFJ993 tuner for 80m through 6m.  Put there due to the HOA and some other stuff.  Also running an Ed Fong J-Pole 2m/ 70cm in the same attic.

I went with "IXI" in memory of a great club station where I did some work and learned a lot.  The original callsign was abandoned long ago and the club now uses WA8MU. I hope the football team comes back some day.  When I was there the coach was Bo Schembechler.  He followed Woody Hayes and Ara Parseghian as coach at Miami and he beat a Big Ten team almost every year.  Then he went somewhere else. 

I confirm by qrz.com and LoTW regularly. Wherever you are in the world, a direct postal card will  be returned by the same method with no cost or postage required on your part.  Sorry, no Bureau.  Life is too short in these times for the bureau. Hope that you understand.

Thanks and 73,

Mike
